Glasswashers

Glastender fully automatic glasswashers replace hand washing to save labor and speed service. In addition, the compact design of our glasswashers saves floor space. All of our models are manufactured with complete stainless steel construction and include a stationary spray box engineered for maximum soil removal, a pumped wash and rinse for consistent pressure, and automatic detergent and sanitizer metering pumps.

The GW24 rotary glasswasher and the GT-18 series rotary rack glasswashers are the ideal choice for an underbar environment.

GT-18 and GW24 Rotary Glasswashers

The GT-24 and GT-30 rotary glasswashers are best suited for pass-thru cocktail station applications.

GT-24 Rotary Glasswasher

The GWS66 Glasswashing Station includes:

  • GW24 glasswasher with 01001500 slide-out chemical bottle rack

Ever have a customer wait for a drink? Chances are your bartender is running ragged…and looking for help! Teamwork is the key. A Glastender Cocktail Station builds as many steps of the Cocktail Life Cycle™ as possible into one compact station and then provides access to both the bartender and cocktail servers so they can share the work.

Cocktail Life Cycle

Glastender Cocktail Stations are available in three varieties:

  • Assembly Style for making drinks
  • Disassembly Style for handling soiled glassware
  • Complete Style for making drinks and handling soiled glassware

Bar Fabrication

Glastender Underbar Equipment is manufactured with stainless steel.

Our incredible variety of products as well as our ability to make custom pieces means you will be sure to get the perfect layout for your needs.

Choice Bar Fabrication

Better or best. It's your choice. Glastender's main underbar line is superior to Perlick's, yet is priced competitively. Our superior features cost more to manufacture, which means we cannot always beat Perlick's price. To remedy this situation, we developed the Choice line of underbar to compare more directly with Perlick, while still distinguishing itself with the following set of superior features:

  • All stainless steel fabrication
  • One-piece seamless top and backsplash, excluding ice bins and corners
  • A generous 14" underbar skirt
  • Welded construction with bolt-on legs
  • Integral, welded backsplash stiffeners

Modular Bar Die

With Glastender Modular Bar Die, underbar equipment is mounted and supported on the bar die instead of having legs and simply being pushed up against a millwork bar die. The result on the bartender side is a beautiful and innovative line-up that is sealed to the floor and is all stainless steel.

Modular Bar Die eliminates the need for underbar leg sets and provides a chase-way for soda, beer, electrical, and plumbing lines.

Millwork bar top and front finishing panels are supplied by your mill-worker.

Draft Beer & Wine Dispensing

Remote draft beer and wine dispensing systems are an excellent way to enhance the profitability of your bar operation. Just as the brewery takes great care to brew, store and distribute kegs of draft beer to your establishment, you need a remote system that will dispense your draft beer properly and help maintain brewery freshness.

Draft wine dispensing is similar to beer dispensing, except that wine cannot come into contact with the chrome plated brass hardware that some manufacturers use for their dispensing faucets. Glastender manufactured beer towers come standard with 304 series stainless steel faucets and shanks, ensuring proper handling of wine.

Each Glastender remote draft beer & wine system is individually engineered at the factory and our experienced Glastender authorized installers are there to ensure your system works properly.

Direct draw beer and wine dispensing is also an option by converting one of our bar profile coolers from shelf storage to keg storage. Appropriate coolers are identified with the “Draft Compatible” logo in the bar refrigeration section of our Product Directory & Price List.

Our inside sales staff is ready to design your next draft beverage system. You can reach them at 800-748-0423 or via email at info@glastender.com.

Vinfinity Wine Preservation System

Expand your wine-by-the-glass service and increase revenue with the Glastender Vinfinity® Wine Preservation System. Its patented technology removes 95% of the air in any open bottle in less than two seconds, protecting wine flavor after every pour to minimize waste and maximize profit.

The Glastender Vinfinity® central vacuum unit comes in a vertical (CVU-V) or horizontal (CVU-H, shown) module that is conveniently located inside a cabinet within your underbar layout.

Bottle Disintegration System

Glastender's Bottle Disintegration System increases your cash flow by decreasing your trash flow. The unit can reduce the volume of bottles by up to 85%, lowering your disposal fees.

Our Family Business

 

Glastender -

Manufacturing creative solutions by doing it first or doing it better.

About Us

History

Headquartered in Saginaw, Michigan, USA, Glastender, Inc. was established in 1969 when our founder and CEO, Jon D. Hall invented the world’s first automatic rotary glasswasher.

The cutting-edge glasswasher design saved space and eliminated wasted steps for bartenders.

Early rotary glasswasher

The second automatic rotary glasswasher sold was incorporated into a pass-thru cocktail station. The innovative station design allowed bartenders and servers to work as a team, doubling bartender output.

Jon pioneered a sense of creativity, flexibility, and feature focus that continues to be ingrained in the culture of our family business to this day. Our enthusiasm for developing new products to meet customer needs has contributed to the tremendous expansion of our product line. We now manufacture a complete line of quality bar equipment and several specialty food service products.

In Remembrance

In 1979 Jay H. Kegerreis joined Glastender, Inc. as a corporate investor and Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. He provided the company with much needed expertise in business, sales, and finance. Along with Jon’s talent for creative design, they formed the perfect alliance that became the backbone of Glastender’s success and continued growth. When Jay Kegerreis passed away in January 1998, Jon D. Hall, Sr. resumed sole ownership of the company.

Investment

From our humble beginnings in a 15,000 square foot building, we have expanded our factory five times. Completed in December of 2009, our most recent expansion brought us to over 189,000 square feet under one roof.

In addition to expanding the physical size of our factory, we have continued to invest in state-of-the-art equipment. A key element in the quality of our products and our efficiency in manufacturing is the utilization of leading-edge automated sheet metal processing equipment.

We invest in our employees as well, providing training and often promoting from within. Our partnership with our employees includes our introduction of open book management in early 2009, allowing all of our employees to have an understanding of our company and how they contribute to our success. Employees see weekly results of the company performance and have a financial interest in the outcome.

Flexibility

We focus on flexibility, having the largest number of bar products in the industry. In addition, we are able to make custom units to serve special needs.

Features

We pay attention to the details. Each piece of equipment is engineered with features that enhance your efficiency, ease your maintenance, and prolong the life of your investment.

Innovation

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then our competition is saying great things about us. Our attention to detail and focus on efficiency has lead to many innovative firsts that have been replicated by others in the industry. Several of our designs have even become the industry standard. Examples are as follows:

  • GT-24 rotary glasswasher
  • GT-18 door type rack glasswasher
  • Pass-thru cocktail stations
  • All stainless steel underbar
  • Combination ice bins
  • The use of plastic breaker strip as a thermal break around an ice bin liner
  • Soda gun holders
  • Drainboard design that includes a pan with a separate perforated insert
  • Corner fillers as drainboards instead of flat stainless fillers
  • Underbar liquor displays on 16" legs
  • Speed rail open step and rail design
  • Underbar liquor displays and speed rails with plastic sound deadening covers
  • Speed rail clear, lift-off liquor identification covers
  • Modular bar die
  • Single door front-venting back bar cooler
  • 12" compressor compartments on back bar coolers to maintain even overall dimensions
  • 35" high back bar cabinet
  • Narrow door coolers
  • Reach-in mug chiller
  • Glass ice display units
  • One-piece top with integrated mullion on slide top coolers and mug frosters
  • Beer line chillers with remote installable control panel

Design Expertise

Not only are we a world class manufacturer, we are also experts in bar design. Our dedicated and experienced sales team works closely with the customer to create efficient bar designs, improving their chances of success.

Our designs are based on function. We work with you from conception to realization. We ask the right questions to determine your needs and design the most productive layout possible. Our bar designs combined with our incredible product features give you the most efficient and easy to maintain bar possible.

Big enough to handle your needs, yet small enough to listen

As we are one of the largest bar equipment manufacturers in the world, we have the resources necessary to meet your needs. At the same time, we are a specialty manufacturer. We are still small enough to listen and respond to your special requests. Almost all of our production is made to order, allowing us to pay attention to the details.

Expect More

The flexibility you want. The features you need. Glastender. Expect more.

Family Business

Jon Hall always encouraged the involvement of his family and each of his five children have worked in the business at one time or another. Currently, son Todd Hall (President), daughter Kim Norris (Vice President of Administration) and son-in-law Mark Norris (Vice President of Operations) handle all of the business operations, which allows Jon to focus on his true passion of designing new products.
