The History of Porcelain Patch & Glaze
A Hobby BEcomes a Business
What is today a thriving nationwide business was started back in 1938 as a hobby of A. B. Smith.
While working for a nearby paint company in Boston, Smith spent his evenings patching porcelain for neighbors.
It wasn’t long before he was able to interest appliance stores in the area into doing touch up repairing on refrigerators and stoves. With more work than could be handled on a part-time basis, he left his job in Boston and devoted full time to his porcelain patching business.
In 1946, Phillip J. Gleason, now President of the firm, joined Smith as a partner. The demand for their services continued to grow after World War II, as the availability of appliances increased. Appliance manufacturers, distributors, dealers, department stores, storage warehouses and truckers found it more profitable to utilize Porcelain Patch than to hire their own employees. The Watertown office soon had eight full time workers working in and around Boston.
