Headquartered in Saginaw, Michigan, USA, Glastender, Inc. was established in 1969 when our founder and CEO, Jon D. Hall (his story), invented the world’s first automatic rotary glasswasher. The cutting-edge glasswasher design saved space and eliminated wasted steps for bartenders.

Our desire to help our customers has been a driving force since the beginning. The second automatic rotary glasswasher ever sold was incorporated into an innovative pass-thru cocktail station, which allowed bartenders and servers to double output by fostering teamwork. The rotary glasswasher and pass-thru cocktail station are just two early examples of Jon’s creative sense and customer-oriented focus that permeate the culture of Glastender today.

Our attention to detail and focus on efficiency has lead to many innovative firsts that have been replicated by others in the industry. Some examples include the rotary glasswasher, pass-thru cocktail station, modular bar die, and reach-in froster, among many others. (Source:
