Lalanne's Vulcanizing Works

The Origins of Glass Doctor of Tulare County

Just as the calendar ticked over into the year 1917, Frank Lalanne, a modest man born into a family of French immigrants, created a business from scratch that specialized in receiving batches of rubber tires. He called it Lalanne’s Vulcanizing Works, and set up shop in Porterville, California. Four years later, Frank and his wife shifted to the auto business, renaming the company Lalanne’s Auto Wrecking, and in doing so became one of the very first companies in the area to offer auto glass to customers.

By the middle of the century, Frank’s son Gary had taken control of the company, and the tradition of a family-run business continued when Frank’s grandsons Gary II and Jon took the reins. In 2004, a bold rebranding strategy went underway, and Glass Doctor of Tulare came to be.
