017 Ranking of  
the Nation’s Top  
Contract Glaziers  
hen it comes to the year ahead, the contract glazing industry is  
excited—and for a lot of good reasons: solid backlogs and bid-  
ding activities, as well as positive economic and construction  
activities (see box on page 36 for more).At the same time,there’s still plenty  
to worry about.And the biggest problem? Finding skilled labor.That’s been  
an increasing concern, and contract glaziers mention it when asked about  
their worries for 2017 (see page 37).

Whether worried or optimistic, many contract glaziers are looking back  
on 2016 with good feelings. According to this year’s listing of the nation’s  
top 50 contract glaziers,many companies reported not only increased sales,  
but also backlog compared to the year before.  
As you read through this year’s list,you may notice there wasn’t a lot of move-  
ment among the ranks when compared to last year’s list. Many companies  
stayed within a few places compared to their position in 2016. One impressive  
jump,though,was Denver-based Metropolitan Glass,which moved from No.40  
in 2016 to No.26 this year.The company’s sales increased from $16.3 million to  
$27.5 million; backlog is also up 68 percent.Also seeing a big sales increase was  
Karas & Karas.The company stayed in the No.9 spot,but saw sales grow from  
$69 million to $89 million and a 20-percent increase in backlog.  
The information included in this section is derived from a number of  
sources, including submissions from the companies themselves, industry  
interviews,as well as our own estimates.Annual sales listed include volume  
for both commercial and residential work only. The backlog change refers  
to the increases or decreases in reserved projects. Change in backlog is in-  
cluded only when provided by the company. Companies are ranked based  
on their 2016 annual sales (in some cases projected); in the case of a tie,we  
used the reported backlog to determine those rankings.  
Benson Industries has been involved  
with many major curtainwall glazing  
projects, such as the SOM-designed
