Lee & Cates Glass, Inc. first opened its doors in 1926 in Downtown Jacksonville as a service provider for the growing automobile industry. While auto glass repair and replacement still represents a large percentage of our work, we’ve grown our company by providing many other types of glass-related products and services under the categories of auto glass, residential glass, decorative glass and commercial glass. These services include power window & door locks, tub & shower enclosures, sliding glass doors, mirrored walls, window replacement, headlight restoration, and storefront glass & metal. We have also expanded to cover territories outside of Jacksonville, including Brunswick, St. Augustine, Fernandina Beach, Panama City, and Tallahassee, where we opened a 2nd location in 2015.
Our founders, brothers-in-law Thomas D. Lee, Sr. and Raymond H. Cates, built their company on the principles of honesty and determination. Our current CEO and President, Tom Lee III, continues to run the company with the same values as his grandfather and great uncle. His son, Thomas Lee IV, is the Operations Manager and was recently selected as 2016 Chair-Elect of ImpactJax, the JaxChamber equivalent of Access Tallahassee. Through his ImpactJax experience and as a former Tallahassee young professional after graduating from Florida State University, he knows and appreciates the commitment of Access Tallahassee, its leadership and its membership to helping cultivate a vibrant young professional community in Tallahassee.
Together, Tom & Thomas look forward to growing their business in Jacksonville, Tallahassee, and throughout North Florida & South Georgia. Celebrating 90 years of business in 2016, we know that a strong commitment to excellence and 100% customer satisfaction will carry us well into the 21st century.
