Glassopolis recently earned a $100,000 award at the recent Challenge Competition for its conception of Fireswiss, a fire-rated glass product. The event was sponsored by the Toronto-based Globe and Mail and Telus.

According to information provided by Glassopolis, proposals were analyzed by a panel of six judges. Glassopolis, a fabricator and distributer of specialty glass, was selected out of 1,200 small-business participants for its Fireswiss proposal.

“The award will help us purchase the best equipment to process our new product,” says Rob Botman, general manager of Glassopolis.
