June 23, 2010

With more than 57 years of commercial glazing throughout the country, Trainor Glass of Alsip, Ill., is continuing to grow into residential interiors by opening its third glass design center, located at 939 W. Lake Street in the West Loop of Chicago.

"We have seen the most unique glass designs throughout the world in our business, and can't wait to show you the endless possibilities of glass in home and office interiors," says Bob Trainor, chief executive officer of Trainor Glass Company.

According to the company announcement, the moment visitors enter the new 20,000-square-foot Lake Street showroom, they will begin to see the endless potential of glass. From glass stairs to kitchen countertops that change color, illuminated glass shelving to shower enclosures, the showplace offers a variety of samples as well as experienced design consultants to help customers transform their inspirations into reality.

Products include:

Exterior glass: Railings, fencing, awnings, sunshades, decorative printed glass;

Interior glass: Glass and mirrored closets, custom mirrors, shelving, digitally printed glass, partition walls and doors; and

Kitchen, shower and bath glass: Shower and tub enclosures, partitions, screens, glass countertops, sinks and backsplashes.

"We've been the company Chicago businesses have come to for glass since 1953. We've seen the market's peaks and valleys, but through it all, our business has stayed strong. Why? Chicagoans just love glass," adds Trainor. "Glass has a style and elegance that is fresh and unique, and that is a value our customers recognize no matter what the economy is doing."

The company says its new design center will bring 30-40 new jobs to the area with glass design, delivery and installation throughout Chicago and the outlying suburbs.
