He eventually moved the business to Weed Street and later turned it over to his son, Danny Adams. Danny ran the business until he succumbed to cancer in March 2005.
She said there is a family connection to the business as her father, Richard Dandrow, worked for Ed Adams at one time.
Adams Glass was located at 198 Idaho Ave. on the former Plattsburgh Air Force Base when she acquired it. Dandrow-Reidy moved the business to Trade Road after she bought the former Todd’s Glass building in 2008.
The building is actually home to two companies. Dandrow’s Painting, a bridge-washing company, is also located there.
Dandrow-Reidy said it was originally a painting company, but evolved into a bridge-painting company and now a bridge-washing company.
Adams Glass has four people who work in the office and 10 more in the shop.
“I have the greatest employees,” she said. “Their main concern is to make sure the customers are happy.”
That includes Dave Pelkey, Sue LeBlanc and Eric Pelkey, who worked at Adam’s Glass before Dandrow-Reidy bought the business.
Adams Glass is a New York State Certified Woman-Owned Business Enterprise, which helps when they bid on projects that receive state or federal funds.
Involved in local area
The company is involved in a number of high-profile projects at the moment. That includes the Morrisonville Fire Station, ongoing work at CVPH Medical Center, the expansion at Bombardier, Lenny’s Shoe and Apparel and the Kinney Drugs and Subway projects on Boynton Avenue.
Other highly visible examples of their work can be seen at the Gateway Plattsburgh office building on Durkee Street and the architectural glazing features at the Banker Road Industrial Park.
They plan to be working on renovations at deFredenburgh Hall at SUNY Plattsburgh during the winter.
“From a year ago, things are starting to pick up,” Dandrow-Reidy said.
