Henderson Glass is proud to be a locally owned and operated family business. This means that unlike the bigger guys we can offer a truly personal yet highly professional service. At Henderson Glass you still get to talk to the owners of the company and deal with us direct. Our long standing in the business offers you peace of mind and shows you we are passionate about what we do.
Henderson Glass has its beginnings over 50 years ago. Henderson Glass Supplies Ltd was started in a garage on Swanson Road in Swanson in March 1952 by E. T (Jim) Bedogni. The business was moved the following year to a small shop owned by a Mr Paine on the corner of Mary Street (now Dora Street) and Station Road (now Railside Avenue). Pictured are Jim Bedogni (RHS) and his foreman Keith Hamlin. These premises were soon too small and a move was made initially to Bert Stiles old Plumbers building near the corner of Railside and Great North Road and then to the Collingwood Brothers building on Sturges Road in 1957. The trucks in those days were Commer Flat tops and much of the glass was carried flat.
Jim Bedogni was well known in Henderson in the 1950s and 1960s with many customers amongst the local Dalmatian community. The major group house builders of the day Neil Housing, Davern Homes and Universal were all customers during these early years when all the joinery was wooden.
The business continued to grow and during the early 1960s a branch was opened in New Lynn on Great North Road at the corner of Titirangi Road next to New Lynn Motors. Then in 1966 Henderson Glass moved into brand new premises in Dora Street.

Present owners Brent and Yvette Meredith purchased Henderson Glass in 2004 after operating Kiwiglass for 16 years. Both these West Auckland companies were amalgamated to bring you Henderson Glass as it is today. Company growth soon meant Henderson Glass needed somewhere bigger to operate from. So in 2007 the company was moved to larger dedicated premises with a factory and showroom on site.
