There’s no glass and aluminum enclosure like it. “At least, no other frameless, retractable glass sunrooms, solariums and three-season rooms can rival us for style, appearance, functionality and user-friendliness,” says John Van Iperen, sales manager for Lumon Canada. “Our quality and continuous product development have really paid off.”

Finland-based Lumon has a 35-year global presence, exporting its products to over 20 different countries and employing more than 675 employees, producing annual sales of around $100 million. Specializing in glass and aluminum constructions for condos and private residential homes, Lumon is one of the leading suppliers in the European balcony and terrace market boasting one million customers worldwide. Lumon Canada marked its first foothold in the North American market in 2011 with a presence in Cookstown, Ont. The company has since grown to encompass plants and showrooms in Stoney Creek, Ont., Abbotsford, B.C., and its new state-of-the-art, 60,000-square-foot production facility in Woodbridge, north of Toronto, manufacturing and servicing the North American consumer market in tandem with sales consultants and dealers across the continent.
