It is thanks to the knowledge that my grandfather, an expert glazier, and the teachings that my father, a 2nd generation expert glazier, passed on to me, that I have been able to build, since 1994, a company worthy of mention.
The construction industry is constantly evolving, and I am proud to say that thanks to our vision of continuous improvement, VPL Glass and Aluminum has been able to adapt to all these changes, both positive and negative. To be able to contribute to the economic growth of our region is an immense privilege.
We have, over time, refined our work and manufacturing methods to ensure that each of our deliverables are of superior quality. Thanks to our faultless work procedures, the company quickly positioned itself among the largest in the field.
At VPL, employees are part of the family, and we are constantly looking out for their well-being by offering them the opportunity to grow within the company. Being future-oriented, we want to ensure the company’s sustainability by training the next generation to become the fourth generation of VPL’s expert glaziers. Many thanks to all our committed employees who constantly contribute to our success; their dedication is a real asset.
In addition to celebrating a quarter-century of operation in 2019, we have completed a second phase of expansion of our premises in order to continue to offer unparalleled service and to pursue our goal of being and remaining the benchmark in architectural glass and aluminum.
