  • Security Glass Ltd.

    Security Glass Ltd.

    MEDF initially invested with Security Glass Ltd. to bring tempered glass capabilities to the company in 2014. As the company continued to grow, additional complimentary innovative products such as ceramic enamel frits were launched. Basically ceramic frits are finely ground glass mixed with inorganic pigments to produce a desired color. The coated glass is then heated to about 1,150°F, fusing the frit to the glass surface, which produces a ceramic coating almost as hard and tough as the glass itself. The company has been producing these premium custom pieces for many local clients as this capability clearly differentiates the company from all its competitors on the Prairies.

Financing

  • Labels Unlimited

    Labels Unlimited

    When I needed financial assistance to expand my business, I went directly to Metis Economic Development Fund and Louis Riel Capital Corporation. Securing financing helped me expand my business. I highly recommend MEDF and LRCC to other businesses looking to partner with a local community lender that understands the needs of the community.

On many occasions they have went out of their way to be flexible with my requests and needs, all while maintaining a professional manner.
