Due to increased demand for its high performance products, Inline Fiberglass Ltd. is starting a second shift. The Toronto-based company has been working overtime for several months while sales have been steadily increasing, officials note, and recenlty began a recruiting campaign to get more workers to expand production.

"It's a credit to the entire company, we have continuously exceeded all projections," says Tom Rokicki, operations manager. "Windows, lineals and equipment sales are all up. In a time when many companies have shut their doors, we are cautiously optimistic that this will continue."

Earlier this year, the company reported it was considering adding a distribution facility in the U.S. Bernard Koricki, Inline's dealer sales manager, reports it is still in negotiations, but plans to make an announcement on the new location in the not-too-distant future.

"The growth potential is primarily increasing from the U.S., but also from Europe and the East," he continues.  "We would attribute this to the 30/30, a shift to greener more efficient products and a general awareness of fiberglass as mainstream product."

"The demand for fiberglass has been growing every year and is reflected in our growth," Tom Rokicki adds. "More people are realizing the advantages and are specifically asking for our products."

Inline Fiberglass produces finished fiberglass windows and doors, as well as lineals and equipment for the production of pultruded fiberglass products.  In addition to expanding its operations, the company is also hoping to add another new product to its offering by year's end.
