Focused on success, Glenn’s path is a very interesting one. Starting with humble beginnings in his garage, Glenn founded Milltech Millwork Ltd., in August 1986. Having learned the inner workings of the Architectural Millwork trade through his education path as a graduate of the Cabinetmaker Apprentice Program at NAIT, then refining his skills as a Plant Foreman in another large millwork shop, he was able to create a product and service offering based on integrity, technology, honesty and respect. Glenn is a certified Journeyman Cabinetmaker.
With a focus on growing an amazing team, and promising profitability to his shareholders, Glenn has been able to grow the company into a fantastic, state of the art facility housing 100,000sq’ of manufacturing and management infrastructure.
Glenn’s innovation didn’t stop when he achieved the typical success common amongst good manufacturers. He founded and created TRAKware systems, a real time Enterprise Resource Planning software tool designed to allow manufacturers to control project data and management information in a control setting. This solution has helped the company, amongst others, to realize the successful management of over 50 projects at a time, with never late results.
Glenn is committed to his social obligations to his loyal employees, shareholders and stakeholders such as clients and partners. Glenn is personally involved in every project from cradle to client and it is evident that everybody matters to him. Glenn is blessed with several of his family members working under his leadership and the future looks bright for Milltech Millwork Ltd
