Agnora creates oversized masterpieces for iconic brands
“Agnora is known for fabricating the largest architectural glass in all of North America. We’ve chosen to specialize in custom fabrication and oversized glass. We’re not a glass factory,” underlines Richard Wilson, President of Agnora, Inc., in Collingwood, in Ontario, Canada, about two hours north of Toronto. “To stay as the leader in this area, we continue to invest in the latest and most advanced technology, such as Glaston’s Roller Heat Control (RHC) upgrade for our special ProE Magnum flat glass furnace.
Richard Wilson and his wife started Agnora about six years ago to provide the exceptional high-quality, oversized architectural glass units that are available in Europe, but are hard to find in the North American market.
Agnora purchased the tailor-made Glaston ProE Magnum 3372 flat tempering furnace in 2010, and it has been operating flawlessly over the past five years.
In June 2015, Richard visited the Glaston factory in Tampere, Finland, during his participation at the Glass Performance Days (GPD) conference. Glaston presented the Roller Heat Control (RHC) as part of their latest furnace technology showcase. “Even though our furnace is only five years old and in reality would still have another good 20 years of life, I decided on the spot that I couldn’t live without this technology,” Richard says.
“It’s much easier to use the furnace than before. But even more importantly, the quality that we are now putting out is exceptional.”
