Convenience Group Turns 40

March 20, 2014 - Convenience Group began in President George Turjanica’s south Etobicoke basement in 1974, when an innovative company named 3M selected his company as a dealer for their window film products.

In the beginning, Convenience Group focused on introducing solar films to commercial office buildings in Toronto. Solar films remain popular as a way of not only addressing solar glare but moderating building temperatures. The rise of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system and the rebates available through the Ontario Power Authority’s saveONenergy program have helped continue the demand for the company’s products. In 1991, Convenience Group was made the Canadian distributor of 3M products, adding to the scope of its business the supply and support of a network of dealers across the country. Convenience Group now oversees a network of around 30 dealers across Canada, with locations in all major centres.

In recent years, Convenience Group became more aware of how buildings impacted the migratory bird population. They consulted with the advocacy group FLAP (Fatal Light Awareness Program) to develop a responsive product to address the increasing problem of bird fatalities. In essence, the product developed is a window film featuring a specifically sized and spaced grid of dots or lines. When applied to the first four floors of a building (the problem zone), it enables birds to detect the glass and effectively prevent bird collisions.

After forty years of remarkable growth, Convenience Group includes the TD Centre, as well as many buildings up and down University Avenue, in its project portfolio. The impressive client list not only includes commercial office buildings, but hospitals, universities and prominent area residences.

George Turjanica marked the occasion by offering his gratitude, “We extend our sincere thanks to our dedicated team, 3M our supplier partner and our customers for making these 40 years successful. With the addition of new and innovative products and services, we look forward to the opportunity for continued success.”
