"Yes, we are in the business of glass - but really, we are in the business of people." - Betsy Hobby, CEO
Founded in 2009 by entrepreneur, Elizabeth (Betsy) Hobby, United Glass Services, LLC (UGS) began as an automotive and residential glass service located in Newberry, SC as Sterling Glass, Inc. The company quickly grew to serve clients across the state.
Upon receiving its first Class 1 railroad contract in 2016, United Glass Services was born. With the help of her husband and Chief of Products & Services, Landon Hobby, United Glass Services quickly grew to become the industry leader in custom on-site heavy equipment glass replacement for rail equipment and facilities - all while maintaining auto, residential, and commercial glass services across S.C.
