York Aluminum celebrates 50 years
By Patrick Flannery
York Aluminum is celebrating 50 years in business this September. The Toronto-based manufacturer of storm doors, porch enclosures and storm windows was started in the Weston area of Toronto in 1969 by Ernie Weidner. Today, it is run by his son, Ed, and operates out of a 35,000-square-foot facility in Etobicoke.
“York Aluminum was started by my father in a 2,000-square-foot unit,” Ed reports. “We have relocated six times over the years and been in Etobicoke since 1974. We pride ourselves in quality, reliability, honesty and customer service. I strongly believe that’s why we are here today carrying on what my dad started 50 years ago.”
York Aluminum manufactures custom-sized aluminum storm doors, screen doors, porch enclosures, entrance enclosures, storm windows and professional weather-stripping. It is 100 per cent Canadian family-owned and operated.
