Dec. 8, 2016 - It took more than the bad traffic prior to a Jets home game as well as a Standing Rock protest at the intersection of Portage and Main to slow down the nearby FenMan AGM on December 1st, in downtown Winnipeg. Approximately 30 people attended the meeting at the Clay Oven Restaurant at Shaw Park (where the Winnipeg Goldeyes play baseball when it’s not winter).
Taking WinDoor to Montreal involved an element of risk for Fenestration Canada, no question. The show had become Canada's premier destination for the window and door industry over 22 years in downtown Toronto, and moving it risked losing participation from the large concentration of fenestration companies in southern Ontario. But everyone agreed that the formula that had been so successful had gotten tired and it was time for change. There is no growth in business without risk, and WinDoor's debut in Quebec proved that bold moves combined with expert planning, energetic leadership and a clear vision can indeed give new life to a venerable brand.

Aug. 18, 2016 - Delegates at the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance 2016 Summer Conference sometimes had to tear themselves away from the breathtaking views and visits by the local wildlife long enough to concentrate on the excellent technical progam Aug. 8 to 10 at the Banff Centre for Creativity and the Arts in Banff, Alta.
