Welcome to Simcoe Glass
Simcoe Glass opened on June 1, 2001 and Alan Werner is the store manager. Alan had been an employee of Simcoe’s parent company, Tillsonburg Glass & Mirror Ltd. for several years and commuted from the Simcoe area. Alan sold product to a few customers, friends and relatives in the Simcoe area and well as you know good news travels fast. Before we knew it a large percentage of Alan’s customer base was from the Simcoe area and he was spending less and less time in Tillsonburg. So, we decided to open our location at 40 Park Road, Unit 3, Simcoe to better service the needs of the area. This year we’ve moved to a new location to expand our showrooms and to be more accessible to our clients. We are now at 2-46 Luscombe Drive, Simcoe.
A Bit More of Our History
Simcoe Glass is a division of Tillsonburg Glass & Mirror Ltd. one of the longest running family owned and operated glass/glazing companies in Ontario. Tillsonburg Glass and Mirror Ltd. was originally founded in 1940 by Walter Reginald (Sam) Heckford in the basement of his home on Tillson Ave. Although we quickly outgrew that location we have stayed on the same street. The Heckford family now operates out of their showroom located at 213 Tillson Avenue, Tillsonburg, Ontario. Four generations in a family business is no small triumph in the business world of today.
We attribute our success to the fact that our companies continue to grow and change with the times. We have earned a reputation for providing quality products and service at a fair price. Our goal is to provide exceptional service and quality to each customer, big or small from either of our locations.
We research the marketplace and continuously introduce new innovative products. We carry products from numerous reputable manufacturers and can offer our customers quality products at all price points.
Residential products include new construction and replacement windows and doors from companies like , Sierra Pacific, Dashwood, Vinylbilt, Gentek, Aluminart, and Phantom Screen, Steelcraft and Atlas garage doors and operators, Velux Skylites and sun tunnels, McDonald or Harmony retractable and fixed awnings, Harmony and Talius security shutters, and Talius retractable screens, just to name a few.
We can fit your home with a beautiful custom outdoor or indoor tempered glass railing, all glass shower, custom mirrors, shelving or tabletops. Or perhaps you require replacement parts, a new thermal unit, a screen or sash repair or service on an existing window or door. We also carry patterned glass, plexi glass, acrylic and lexan.
A side of the business that a lot of people are not familiar with is our commercial glazing. We are a dealer for Alumicor and one of Kawneer’s few selected and authorized dealers. We custom fabricate and install commercial store fronts for both small and large businesses all across Southwestern Ontario. Our glass trucks are frequently spotted in Windsor, Toronto, Ottawa and Kingston.

We are also proud to have supplied numerous Schools, Hospitals, Churches and other Government buildings.
We believe in giving back to the communities we live in and therefore we support numerous charities, community projects and activities and local sports teams. We are a member of our local Chamber of Commerce, The London & District Construction Association, The After Five Club, Economic Development Committee, Homebuilders Association, Canadian Independent Business Association, Window Wise and S.A.W.D.A.C.
A lot has changed over the last 80 years but one thing that remains the same is our strong commitment to quality work and customer satisfaction. WE SERVICE WHAT WE SELL!
