Lorain Native Finds Calling Working with Glass


NavCour Glassware specializes in making the impossible possible with high-quality custom scientific glass blowing, unique neon tube signage, and creative art glass.



It is the mission of Navcour Glassware to provide our customers with high quality products at the right prices. Our knowledgeable, friendly staff will help educate, create, and deliver exceptional products for our customers, while delivering superior customer service every step of the way.



To be a company that always provides the best quality products with exceptional customer service to back it.



NavCour began in 2004 as the vision of Doug Navalinsky — a neon tube bender and scientific glass blower -- and Eli Coury, a pharmaceutical products distributor. Prior to forming NavCour Glassware in Bay Village, Ohio, Navalinsky expanded and enhanced his glass making skills in positions with Aldrich Chemical Co., and Lab Glass in Kingsport, Tenn. He holds an Associate's degree in Scientific Glass Blowing from Salem Community College, in Carney's Point, New Jersey.



NavCour annually serves more than 150 clients worldwide from its expanded production facility located in Lorain, Ohio. Our product line includes beakers, bottles, burets, condensers, cylinders, dishes, distillation apparatus, flasks, funnels, hydrometers, pipets, specimen containers, tubes/tubing, and vials. Our newly expanded production facilities are equipped with modern glass making equipment that ensures we meet precise laboratory glassware specifications. This includes micro-glassware, along with the ability to form products using borosilicate, soft glass, and quartz. Repairing and replacing custom-made scientific glass products have become our specialties.
