Economy Glass was started in 1970 by Ian Viner as a complement to Superior Paint & Body Service. It’s primary function was to supply windshields and provide side & back glass replacement to the body shop, making service faster and more seamless for both Superior Paint, and as a consequence for the customers as well.

After a few years Ian realized Economy Glass could be developed into a standalone company that was an “All Your Glass Needs” business. He created a residential glass department which could replace sealed window units, put in custom shower enclosures, build mirrored closet doors, mirrored walls, create custom furniture etc. – really any type of flat & mirror application a customer required.

Calgary in the late 70’s and early 80’s was booming. With so many commercial buildings going up, Ian saw the opportunity to add a commercial glass department to Economy Glass. It has grown to include many components, including aluminum store front fabrication, custom sealed unit manufacturing, commercial door service, commercial door and window hardware, glass display cases, office interior glazing, swing stage installation, custom glass furniture and shelving etc. Shortly after that he added the 24hour emergency service to help local businesses who were broken into or had other window damage.

Today Economy Glass continues to grow, and prides itself on being able to supply any type of glass application a customer might require.
