Ed Forsythe has been in the glass business for over 26 years and has lived in California for over 17 years. June 2, Forsythe decided to combine the two and opened XXTreme Glass, located at 206 West Buchanan.
"I have worked for a few different glass companies," Forsythe said. "I have helped others set up glass businesses and decided to start one for myself. And California has been due to have a glass shop."
Forsythe said he started in the glass business working for Finland Glass adding he enjoyed meeting new people and going to different places. He was so pleased he has done it ever since.
"I like the glass business," he said. "I get to meet new people everyday and I get to be outside and do mobiles. I get to be on the road. I like that part of it. I also like working with my hands and meeting people. Every customer has a different story which are neat to hear."
