Omniglass SCT was formed by John Zadro, president of Structural Composite Technologies, who will be president of the new company, and Leroy Dankochik, general manager of its predecessor Omniglass, a Winnipeg business which was destroyed by fire around a year ago. Together they purchased Omniglass' assets, including patents, processes and window and door systems.
Omniglass SCT has hired 10 former employees, including Laurie Davies, founder and former CEO of Omniglass, to assist with sales and business development.
|Fiberglass windows and doors are rising in popularity because of their superior structural strength, thermal resistance and paintability. They have been grabbing increasing marketshare in commercial construction (where they qualify for LEED environmental certification) as well as the residential market where quality, durability and aesthetics are increasingly important. |

"We are bringing back a respected name in fibreglass to the North American window and door industry," says Zadro. "We are returning Omniglass SCT to what it did best: designing and manufacturing the best fibreglass components possible for windows and doors."
"We have already signed several deals with window and door manufacturers, including many former clients, who always appreciated the quality of Omniglass products," Zadro adds.
Omniglass SCT will do business alongside privately-owned Structural Composite Technologies, which fabricates composite equipment for the mining, chemicals, utilities, wind energy, transportation and construction industries throughout North America.
