began to provide glass sales and installation services to this community along with aluminum canopies and
canvas awings. Mr. Charles also offered a variety of other services to include fabrication and welding of
aluminum items. He was considered a master craftsman when fabrication using aluminum was involved. They
operated the business in several locations around the city including in a shop in their back yard in the
Pumpkin Center community for several years. In the mid 1970’s the business was relocated to the present
location at 111 McGill Street in New Albany.

Aluminum Company until 1992.
“In 1992, Mr. Charles’s nephew, Donnie Wright purchased the business and re-named it Wright Glass and
Aluminum Company. Donnie along with his wife, Teresa, continued the tradition of quality craftsmanship
