The Hazel Glass Company was started by two brothers Charles N. Brady and C. H. Tallman in 1885 in Wheeling, West Virginia. In the beginning the company made glass inserts that fit inside the zinc lid. By 1886 the companies' business flourished and they expanded into a new facility in Washington, Pennsylvania. At this time besides the mason jar liners they added opal colored ointment jars and salve boxes.
The company continued to grow rapidly adding more manufacturing plants. The Hazel Glass Company formed a division called Atlas Glass Company to meet its fruit jar production. A third company was formed called Republic Glass Company. This company made pressed tumblers from newly developed automatic presses. By 1902 the Hazel Glass Company and the Atlas Glass Company joined together with the Republic Glass Company and the Wheeling Metal Company and formed the Hazel - Atlas Glass Corporation.
