“We joined the GANA Decorative Division in order to promote and expand the use of decorative glass in construction. Nowhere else in the glass industry can you find such a diverse group of companies, and the Decorative Division brings us all together under one umbrella to tackle areas in which we all benefit: expanded presence in the industry, increased technical knowledge and a sense of symmetry and commonality that will continue to help us grow the market in the years to come.”
Cathie Saroka, President,
“Over the years, GANA has been an invaluable source of information for me regarding almost anything related to the use of glass, and for meeting the people who fabricate raw glass into it’s many end uses. For newcomers to the glass industry, I always recommend that one of the very first things they should do is to join GANA, read the various technical manuals, and attend the GANA fabrication seminars. There just isn’t any other place or resource in the flat glass industry where you can find out every detail about the industry.”
