Gary Pollard began working full time at Pollard Windows 30 years ago after completing a Business Diploma program at Sheridan College. He has worked as a sales consultant, service manager and most recently has been head of the U.S. office for 20 years. Gary will be working with Pollard-Josling and the executive team to identify new potential business and build relationships with industry groups.

“We are proud of what our family business stands for and are committed to serving our customers and community in the way they have grown to expect for over 65 years,” said Pollard-Josling. “We will carry on with the vision that both my father and brother, Michael, shared with the help of our family and extended family of employees here at Pollard Windows. Thank you for all your continued support.”

Pollard Windows is a third generation family business, co-founded by Norman and Reginald Pollard. The Pollard family arrived in Canada in 1947 ready to embrace a new life. Norman Pollard, a skilled carpenter, taught his wife and children everything he knew about woodworking. And in 1948, the family business was born. The Pollard formula for success was simple: work hard, reinvest in new technology, and give customers more for their money. Today, Pollard operates out of a 350,000 square foot plant and is recognized as a leader in window and door manufacturing technology.
