Sunview Patio Doors Celebrates 40th Anniversary as the Company Continues to Accelerate Growth

WOODBRIDGE, ONTARIO — December 13, 2018Sunview Patio Doors Ltd. (Sunview) announced today the official celebration of its 40th year in business. The company has grown from a small family-run operation serving Toronto and surrounding areas, to a leading patio door manufacturer with customers across Canada and the United States. With four decades behind them, the team at Sunview proudly reflects on the long, storied history of the company. Originally founded as Sunview Doors in 1978 by the Di Iorio family, the company started with eight employees in a 10,000 sq. ft. facility north of Toronto. In its infancy – and with only a single three-panel aluminum door to sell – the company found early success in the Toronto high-rise development boom of the 1980s. Sunview secured its first international clients in the 1990s with notable sales in Japan, South Africa, and the United States. The company’s performance caught the attention of Canadian extrusions pioneer Vic De Zen who, in 2008, purchased Sunview and brought it into the Vision Group of Companies (Vision Group). “When we decided to buy Sunview Doors in 2008, we knew we were acquiring a company with strong potential for future growth,” said Vic De Zen, Chairman, and Founder of the Vision Group of Companies. “As a member of the Vision Group of Companies, Sunview has been able to turn our world-class extrusion capabilities into high-quality and durable end-user products. The spectacular growth that Sunview has experienced since 2008 is in large part thanks to its vertical integration within our family of companies.” Before becoming a member of the Vision Group, Sunview offered three products (two...

The Vision Group of Companies Announces the Launch of Vision Coatings Limited

WOODBRIDGE, ONTARIO — November 05, 2018The Vision Group of Companies (Vision Group) announced today the official launch of a new division within its expanding family of companies, called Vision Coatings Limited (Vision Coatings). The new entity, which is an offshoot of Sunview Patio Doors (Sunview), will provide high-volume finishing services for extrusion companies, window fabricators, and others in the industry. Demand for colour and finishing options in fenestration markets has escalated in recent years. However, many manufacturers struggle to deliver coated components on time and with consistent quality. Over the years, Sunview has offered these services externally on an “as available” basis. However, with the continually growing demand, the Vision Group decided to establish a separate organization focused on finishing as a service in the largest dedicated coating facility in the country. Located in the heart of Vaughan’s business park, in the Greater Toronto Area, Vision Coatings is strategically situated among the Vision Group’s other Ontario-based subsidiaries and just minutes from major highways allowing shorter lead-times and faster delivery. The company operates in a brand new 50,000 sq. ft. facility with a proven high-volume workflow; a 2,000 sq. ft. custom-designed spray booth enclosure to handle virtually any colour or size requirement; and a robust materials handling system. The facility also features its UV ToughCoat technology, a state-of-the-art, automated coating system that is AAMA 615 certified and offers high-volume production, superior heat-resistance, extreme durability, and a broad spectrum of colour choices. “Vision Coatings is a high-growth opportunity for the Vision Group and aligns perfectly with the expanding needs of the markets we serve,” said Vic De Zen, Chairman, and Founder of the...

Sunview Patio Doors’ Leggera Glass Wall System Continues Momentum with Growing Industry Excitement and Accolades

WOODBRIDGE, ONTARIO — October 15, 2018Sunview Patio Doors Ltd. (Sunview) proudly announced today that its Leggera Glass Wall System continues to receive industry praise and recognition in the lead-up to its release early next quarter. Since, it’s official pre-launch at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Convention in New York City in June, pent-up demand from architects and developers across North America has steadily grown. Most recently, the Leggera, which was developed in partnership with Savio Thesan USA, was awarded the prestigious Crystal Achievement Award for Most Innovative Multi-Panel Door at the GlassBuild America conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Crystal Achievement Awards are an annual event organized by Window & Door, a leading trade media organization for the fenestration industry. Nominations for innovative product designs are submitted throughout the preceding year and assessed by an expert panel of judges who select winners across 7 unique categories. This year, Sunview’s Leggera system was considered alongside nearly 100 other nominees, ultimately taking the top prize for the Most Innovative Multi-Panel Door. One Crystal Achievement Awards judge noted: “The use of magnetic levitation is revolutionizing rail transit, and its application to large/heavy sliding door systems will also be revolutionary. The ability to easily move large door/window glass panels holds great potential to increase the market for these systems.” Eliminating rollers and track systems entirely from the design, the Leggera effectively allows for frictionless movement, meaning people can easily slide panels that weigh in excess of 1,000 pounds. This lack of resistance, coupled with its minimal sill height design, also means the Leggera can be easily configured for ADA (American with Disabilities Act)...

Sunview Patio Doors Proudly Launches Leggera – an Innovative Magnetic Levitation Glass Wall System

WOODBRIDGE, ONTARIO — May 23, 2018 Sunview Patio Doors Ltd. announced today the official launch of Leggera, a revolutionary glass wall offering that uses a patented magnetic levitation system to support large, customized panel sizes for sliding glass wall applications. The initial unveiling of Leggera recently took place at the 2018 Top Glass show in Toronto. The crowd in attendance showed great interest in Sunview’s groundbreaking new concept and the technology that makes it possible. According to Sunview Patio Doors President Tony Margiotta, “We have a sharp focus on product innovation and believe the Leggera offers something truly unique in an industry where differentiation can be a challenge.” Margiotta continued, “Eliminating the need for rollers, track systems, and sills, provides us the ability to design and manufacture sliding glass solutions that were previously impossible to make. Leggera opens up a whole new world of flexibility for home, commercial, and luxury leisure use.” What makes the Leggera special is its ability to support a wide range of panel sizes and weights. The powerful magnet-based system lifts and suspends the door completely off the floor which allows a person to easily slide panels that can exceed weights of 1,000 pounds. With such little resistance needed to open the Leggera and having a minimal sill height design, this product is a perfect fit for ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) applications as well. Sunview developed the Leggera in partnership with Savio Thesan USA, a specialized provider of advanced hardware for windows, patio doors, and many other products. According to Patrick Revenew, Savio Thesan USA President and CEO, “The Leggera represents a perfect example...
