Growing up in the Brickyard neighborhood of West Lynn, Herb Chandler and Hesh Giller likely never imagined their childhood ties would evolve into a lifelong friendship and business partnership. In 1946, the highly respected and gregarious pair founded New Angle Glass Co., recognizing the demand for auto glass replacement. Relying on Hesh’s mechanical eye and Herb’s business sense, they opened their first shop on North Common Street. They later moved the business to Summer Street, before establishing its permanent home on the Lynnway. Today, New Angle Glass operates out of three locations: Lynn, Chelmsford and Watertown. Today, Giller’s son, Andy, who grew up shadowing his father, owns and operates the company.
Hesh, born in 1924, was a 1942 graduate of Lynn Classical High School and a decorated World War II veteran. Herb, a 1941 graduate of Classical, was an outstanding basketball player, leading his team to an Essex County League championship. He was also skilled at volleyball and competed at the Maccabiah Games in Israel. He is a member of the Lynn Classical Hall of Fame. Herb passed away in 1992, Hesh in 1995.
