The Trillium Network for Advanced Manufacturing is profiling AGNORA as a successful and innovative business in Ontario. From the article:

“Most Ontarians know the town of Collingwood for being a four-seasons, world-class tourist destination. However, you might be surprised to discover that it is also home to one of the top architectural glass manufacturing companies in the world. The company, AGNORA, fabricates the largest architectural glass in North America at its 280,000 square foot facility right on Mountain Road in Collingwood.

Despite its advanced technological capabilities and expertise in the glass industry, the employees at AGNORA do not think of it as a glass company at all. Instead, CEO Richard Wilson notes that it is a customer-service company that just happens to fabricate glass. This attitude underpins the culture at AGNORA and is the reason why the company has grown to become such a dominant player in the industry.

AGNORA’s glass can be found in some of the sleekest, most exciting, and cutting-edge projects in North America. Recent examples include air traffic control towers, the Cadillac Fairview Shops at Don Mills, an all-glass staircase at the Onassis Cultural Center in New York, and a 13-panel, digitally-printed glass mural depicting the history of basketball for Kansas University. It has also completed many projects for many high-end retailers on 5th Avenue in New York such as Microsoft, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and H&M, and is a major supplier to Apple.”
