USGNN Original StoryGoldray USA Holds Open House

Several hundred guests were invited to the Goldray USA open house that was held yesterday in Brooklyn.

Goldray USA held an open house yesterday in its facility at 35 Kent Ave. in Brooklyn. The purpose was to introduce the new partnership between Goldray Industries Ltd., the Calgary-based decorative glass supplier, and Colonial Glass Solutions, perhaps better known as Colonial Glass and Mirror, a long-time Northeast glass fabricator.

The new company is a joint partnership between Greg Saroka, president of Goldray Industries, and Zachary Weiner, who is president of the new Goldray USA (CLICK HERE for related article).

"Our Calgary plant is so full, we have to get this facility up to speed and the sooner the better," said Cathie Saroka, marketing director for the company. "We will be adding our DecoTherm decorative glass product to [this facility's current] product line which already includes-insulating glass, tempered glass, spandrel and doors."

The new venture manufactures and distributes these architectural glass products in the Northeast and New England.

Goldray Industries shipped its trade show booth to the Brooklyn facility to showcase some of the decorative product capabilities that are available.

"New York is a big market for us," explained Cathie Saroka, "so we wanted to be closer and have a more integrated operation close to New York. The company is making an extensive investment in plant upgrades to add the decorative glass manufacturing capabilities and continues utilizing its cutting, tempering and fabricating capabilities."

The open house, to which several hundred guests had been invited, took place in the facility that serves as the platform for the new venture.

In addition to showcasing its capabilities at the open house, the Goldray trade show booth had been shipped in to display its DecoTherm decorative glass products. Also at the open house, personnel from Dorma provided information about door hardware and representatives from Edgetech IG lead demonstrations on warm-edge insulating glass production.
