Ann says, “While I work hard, what I value most in life is family. Raising our five boys in Ogden Valley has been an adventure for my husband and me. We have added two daughters and four amazing grandchildren. Life just gets better and better.”
Valley Glass was founded in 1956 by William T. Naylor and has been a pillar of our community ever since. Jerry Naylor (Aug 1932- Sept 2021) spent his entire professional life there. Now, his son, Marc, is the third generation to run the company. Valley Glass is a great source for residential, commercial, and auto glass. If windows need to be replaced or you’re building a new home or remodeling and need glass shower doors, they can help. If you’re driving and crack your windshield, it’s time to call Valley Glass.
Ann says, “From the moment I met the Naylors, they treated me like family, so it was a good fit for me to work with them in the glass industry.” Jerry Naylor’s favorite saying was, “Tell them you are an F.O.B., a Friend of the Boss.” Jerry always valued friendships.
Giving back to the community is vital to Valley Glass. “We’re grateful for what the community has done to contribute to our success,” Ann says. “We are constantly looking for ways to help others.” The Naylor family has lived and worked by their beliefs and values. Kindness and good customer service is their policy and is what keeps people coming back generation after generation.
Ann loves this family-owned business. “It feels good to work for a company with such strong values. It says a lot about Valley Glass that our core values are what set us apart from the competition. Honesty, integrity, and solid traditions are just a few qualities that show who we are and why we are different.”
