Canadian Garibaldi Glass, located in Burnaby, B.C., recently opened a new facility and is celebrating 45 years in operation. To mark this milestone, the company hosted an event for employees and clients to celebrate the company“s success and unveil the new facility. According to an announcement from the company, the new factory has one of the largest tempering ovens in the lower mainland, as well as equipment from the world“s leading machine manufacturers. The equipment will be used for the production of silk-screened ceramic frit, automated insulating glass units and structurally glazed components, among other products. The new facility also has a heat-soaking oven that can accommodate glass lites as large as 104 x 204. We have always pushed the envelope and challenged ourselves. We also have been fortunate to be surrounded with talented people at all levels of the organization, says Carey Mobius, president. We are a second-generation, family owned business. That legacy, coupled with our 150 employees many have been with us for more than 15 years gives us a solid working relationship with our customers. He adds, Our motivation is to continue to develop new products, services and capabilities to meet the ever-increasing, complex requirements of our customers. Our company has grown, expanded and evolved from day one and there is no reason that will ever change. I am confident that this 45th anniversary is our threshold for many more years of glass solutions and innovation. Garibaldi, which is also involved with its community, has contributed to various local charitable organizations. Our company“s commitment to the community is strong and has enabled us to build a reputation as a sustainable partner and a good corporate citizen. We are proud of those relationships, says Mobius.
