Post Time:Jul 11,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:56

Seeking to reinforce  company image in an increasingly competitive market place, well-known companies  such as Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Tiffany, Dior and Apple are placing  significant importance upon creating distinct and memorable impressions in the  minds of consumers through cutting edge design of retail spaces.  Chief  among design considerations is creating a storefront that is at once striking  and functional. 

Fabricated glass has  proven to be an ideal material for this purpose.  Versatile and cost  effective, it can be formed into innumerable configurations in a wide range of  colors and finishes to meet the most demanding aesthetic and structural  requirements.  

Many of the country's  leading architects and designers have crafted modern, iconic facades and  storefronts for many of the best-known brands in business today by utilizing  GlasPro technologies and products such as back-painted panels, digital graphics,  bent, over-sized tempered and custom machine-cut laminated glass. 

It is this unique  repertoire of techniques and materials that have built GlasPro's reputation as  a leader in glass solutions for those professionals shaping the public face of  high-end retail businesses such as:
