Jack Badash entered the Gift Industry as a shipping clerk in 1936. Nine years later, after moving up the ranks and gaining invaluable experience and knowledge, he formed ‘Javit Badash Inc.’, the predecessor to Badash Crystal. Jack started Javit Badash Inc. with his immigrant shoemaker father’s life saving of $1,800. Badash became known among buyers for his American made hand-cut and machine-cut tumblers, stemware, gifts, and vases. The business grew slowly but steadily over the next 35 years. In its heyday, Javit was the largest U.S. firm producing hand-cut and machine cut glassware.
In 1980, Jack Badash sold the company and tried retirement. Being way too active and energetic, Jack was not suited for retirement, so after a few years of consulting, he began Jack Badash Inc., now known as Badash Crystal. Badash Crystal began with hand-cut tumblers as Javit had, then grown to include Russian crystal imports. In 1987, Jack’s son, Mark Badash joined Badash Crystal. Together, Jack and Mark have developed the business by bringing high quality and uniquely designed products from around the globe.
