TORONTO, ON, May 8, 2018/ – GEM Aluminum Manufacturing Company was started in 1961 by John Christopoulos, an immigrant with a dream to provide his family with an opportunity. 57 years later, GEM is managed by John’s two sons, who have brought the business to new opportunities. We’re proud to announce that GEM has been awarded a Canadian Retailer of the Year Award by ENERGY STAR®!
Here is what Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Jim Carr has to say about GEM’s win.
“Congratulations to GEM Windows & Doors for supporting and promoting ENERGY STAR certified products. Improving energy efficiency contributes first-hand to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and GEM’s efforts are making it easier for Canadians to save energy and money while protecting the planet. We thank you for your ongoing commitment to improving the availability of energy efficient products in Canada.”
At GEM, we’re committed to do our part to save our planet. We have one of the largest selections of ENERGY STAR qualified windows in a Canadian showroom and our company’s exterior is designed to remind people that we offer them ENERGY STAR. (Come to 1590 The Queensway, just east of the 427 to be inspired by the choices you have available!) Our staff is ready and knowledgeable in all things ENERGY STAR and can help explain the benefits of ENERGY STAR certified windows. The result is that virtually all windows we quote for homeowners are ENERGY STAR.
Beyond providing a great ENERGY STAR window, GEM participates in SAWDAC’s Window Wise program and our trained installers will put our homeowner’s new windows in the only way that is acceptable to GEM. In other words, the right way!
Combine ENERGY STAR certified products, Window Wise certified installation and GEM’s commitment to our community, recycling and energy use management and the result is our receiving a 2018 ENERGY STAR Canada Retailer of the Year award!
