Garibaldi Glass Opens New Facility; Celebrates 45th Anniversary
June 24, 2011

Today Garibaldi Glass is celebrating 45 years in business and the opening of its new facility.
Garibaldi Glass in Burnaby, B.C., recently opened a new facility and is celebrating 45 years in operation. To mark this milestone, the company is hosting an event today welcoming its employees and clients to celebrate their success and unveil the new facility.

According to the announcement, the new factory features one of the largest tempering ovens in the lower mainland (the Greater Vancouver Area all the way up the Fraser Valley to Chilliwack), as well as equipment from the world’s leading machine manufacturers. The equipment will be used for the production of silkscreened ceramic frit, automated insulating glass units and structurally glazed components, among other products. In addition, the facility features a heat-soaking oven that can accommodate glass lites as large as 104 x 204 inches.

“We have always pushed the envelope and challenged ourselves. We also have been fortunate to be surrounded with talented people at all levels of the organization,” says Carey Mobius, president. “We are a second-generation, family owned business. That legacy, coupled with our 150 employees--many have been with us for more than 15 years--gives us a solid working relationship with our customers.”

He adds, “Our motivation is to continue to develop new products, services and capabilities to meet the ever-increasing, complex requirements of our customers. Our company has grown, expanded and evolved from day one and there is no reason that will ever change. I am confident that this 45th anniversary is our threshold for many more years of glass solutions and innovation.”

Garibaldi is also involved with its community and has contributed to various local charitable organizations.

“Our company’s commitment to the community is strong and has enabled us to build a reputation as a sustainable partner and a good corporate citizen. We are proud of those relationships,” says Mobius.
