Sometimes endings bring new beginnings.

I would like to introduce you to the new Glass Canada. This issue is sporting more than just a facelift as the publication has been completely re-designed from cover-to-cover.

Advertisment

Readers will still see the project profiles, industry news, product reviews, columns, features and editorials they have been reading for years; however, the new format will present this content in a very attractive, easy to use and, dare I say, modern looking print publication.
Successful business owners already know that you can’t sit still and become complacent. Especially in this industry. You have to keep innovating, keep renewing and keep rejuvenating your product or service, whatever that might be.

Like any company in the glass industry, we too are seeking to constantly innovate and improve our product. And like any newly designed product, it doesn’t happen overnight. A lot of thought and effort went into this magazine’s re-design by a highly talented team of graphic artists and creative individuals at our head office in Simcoe, Ont. I am impressed by their dedication to the task and grateful for the final product they have produced for the readers of Glass Canada.

Fond farewell
Like the magazine I too am moving forward. With this issue I say goodbye to readers as this will be my last magazine as its editor. I am leaving to pursue a career in marketing and public relations with an award winning marketing firm in London, Ont.

It was an enjoyable 12 years covering the glass industry. Along the way I have made several friends. It can’t be helped. It’s that kind of industry.

I would like to thank them all for supporting me and this magazine throughout the years. In particular I would like to thank the past and present board members of the Canadian Glass Association (CGA) who endorsed and supported this magazine from day one. I had the honour of witnessing the birth of this national association and the pleasure of reporting about its efforts to promote the industry. And I would like to thank the Canadian Window and Door Manufacturers Association (CWDMA) for coming on board as a regular contributor. The fenestration industry has always been an integral part of this magazine.

For more than 20 years Glass Canada has been covering the glass industry highlighting the products and technologies employed by glaziers and manufacturers. It is always striving to be the medium for glaziers, architects, manufacturers and associations to share information and present industry developments. This magazine is a tribute to the glass professionals who work together to put Canadian cities under the glass.

And it will keep doing that. Glass Canada will keep going forward bringing you the content that is exclusive to the Canadian glass industry with a new look and fresh perspective. It is moving forward…and so am I.

I look forward to new beginnings. •
