About us

Founded in 1979 by Lorenzo and Anthony (Tony) Menecola, Applewood Glass & Mirror has been a respected established industry leader in the architectural glazing industry for many years. Since our inception we have developed valuable lasting relationships with customers, suppliers and our employees. We employ a highly qualified staff with a dedicated commitment to provide all of our customers with quality products, skillful installations and exceptional service. Our metal fabrication plant located in Mississauga, Ontario (Canada), is fully equipped to manufacture a wide range of aluminum and glass fenestration products. Through innovation in design, manufacturing and installation, we have successfully completed a wide range of projects for Architects, General Contractors and Developers in the construction industry.


Services

Manufacturing

We operate from our own recently renovated 42,000 sq. ft. state of the art manufacturing facility. From this facility we have the capacity to handle a wide range of project challenges from simple entrance and window frames to large unitized pre-glazed curtain wall projects. We are constantly re-investing in the latest machinery and equipment to ensure that we remain at the leading edge of our industry. All of this translates into quality products produced quickly and efficiently for you the customer.

Installation

We employ our own forces in the field to install the products we manufacture. Our installers are qualified journeymen glaziers (Architectural Glass & Metal Technicians). The majority of our installation staff has been with us for many years. This enables us to maintain quality and consistency from project to project. Sub-contract erection crews used by many of our competitors cannot obtain the same quality and consistency. We are always looking to improve our field installation methods. Whenever possible we utilize equipment and machinery to install our products in a pre-assembled or pre-glazed condition.

Estimating / Design / Engineering

Our professional staff of sales people, estimators, design technicians and project managers will ensure that your project is built properly on paper first. Product sizes, details and building construction interfaces are all coordinated long before you ever see materials on site. Once the materials do get to your site careful coordination between our project managers and our site personnel ensures your project is installed quickly and efficiently.
