The history of NOWAK GLAS

The history of the successful company NOWAK GLAS GmbH & Co. KG goes back meanwhile more than 50 years to 1964, when Josef Nowak founded his first glaziery business in Wattenscheid. The company soon made a name for itself over and beyond the town's boundaries, thanks to the top quality of its work paired with absolute reliability and exemplary customer service. The versatility offered by NOWAK GLAS made it stand out right from the start - together with the entrepreneurial spirit of its founder and his three sons.
