Omniglass becomes Omniglass SCT

After closing down in 2012 due to a fire, Omniglass, manufacturer of fibreglass for window and doorframes, has reopened as Omniglass SCT at its new location inside Structural Composite Technologies’ composite plant in Winnipeg, Canada. According to Omniglass SCT, 10 former Omniglass employees have been hired and founder Laurie Davies is assisting with sales and business development.

Omniglass, manufacturer of fibreglass for window and doorframes that was shut down by a fire a year ago, has risen from the ashes as a new company. Omniglass SCT partnership began work on new fiberglass pultruded frames and components in November at its new location inside Structural Composite Technologies’ composite plant in Winnipeg, Canada.
Omniglass Inc.’s 60,000-square-foot plant was consumed by fire on 2 January 2012, reportedly causing an estimated USD 15 million in damage, and putting 65 employees out of work. The company, which had developed a specialized pultrusion technology to build window and door frames, licensed to other manufacturers, was sold to Serious Energy, a California-based green energy company in 2010 by its founder, Laurie Davies.
Since then, Omniglass’s assets, including patents, processes and window and door systems, were purchased for an undisclosed sum by the partners – John Zadro, president of Structural Composite Technologies, who will be president of the new company, and Leroy Dankochik, general manager of Omniglass and now the new company.
According to Omniglass SCT, 10 former Omniglass employees have been hired and founder Laurie Davies is assisting with sales and business development.
“Omniglass SCT has a strong, respected brand name in the window and door industry as well as valuable designs, systems and patents,” said Zadro. “We have pledged to restore the company’s reputation of winning business with high quality, on time production.”
He said the new company has signed several deals with window and door manufacturers, including many former clients.
