About Moule Paint & Glass

Moule Paint and Glass was founded by Bill & Margaret Moule in 1949.  

   Bill originally came to California in the 30s and worked as a miner.  There he
met and married Margaret Payne.  They moved from Grass Valley to the Baguio
area in the Philippines, along with their first two children.  When the Philippines
fell to Japan in WWII, the Moule's hid in the countryside but were eventually
captured and lived in a war prison camp until the end of the war.  
   During their time in the Philippines, Bill had been commissioned as an officer in
the US army.  In addition, he had contracted polio and was unable to resume
mining.  Instead, he started a house painting business.  A few years later, he
received back pay from the army for his WWII service and was able to buy out his
supplier, who was retiring.  Thus was born Moule Paint and Glass.
    The business has been continually run by the Moule family in the Spring Hill
area of Grass Valley ever since.  Bill and Margaret raised 12 children in Grass
Valley.  Many of them continue to work in the glass and/or paint business,
including 7 new businesses founded by Moules.
    Moule Paint and Glass has been owned and run by Jim and Janice Moule since
1976.  Since that time there have been 2 new buildings built to house the
growing business.  The family tradition carries on with the 3rd generation actively
working in the business.  We look forward to serving you for years to come.
