Columbia Skylights has been awarded the 2021 ENERGY STAR Canada Sustained Excellence Award. Columbia Manufacturing Co. Ltd. is Canada’s largest skylight manufacturer and the first skylight manufacturer or distributor in Canada to receive this award.
“We are extremely proud to receive this prestigious award,” says Michael Williams, president of Columbia Manufacturing. “We have been producing superior high-performance skylights since 1955 and are honoured to accept this award in recognition of our commitment to developing products that meet the high expectations of today’s customer.”
Energy efficiency and sustainability are increasingly important to the Canadian homeowner. It is Columbia Manufacturing’s goal to offer customers the best solutions—skylights that can withstand the extreme demands of our Canadian climate utilizing the latest materials and technology. This singular focus and drive have allowed the company to grow for over six decades and succeed against international competition.
Every aspect of the skylight has been engineered and rigorously tested to the highest design specification. Columbia offers triple glazing across the entire skylight range—fixed, venting, standard or custom sizes. The company also provides skylights with tinted glass options to reduce solar heat gain and visible light, in both dual and triple glazed configurations. Columbia uses the latest glass advances, argon gas filled triple glazing, along with innovative frame design to reach the standards set out by ENERGY STAR Canada.
“When you see the ENERGY STAR label, you know it means energy savings. It saves money on energy bills, helps consumers and businesses make informed decisions, and lowers energy use. This year’s winners are building a more sustainable, energy-efficient and prosperous future,” says the Honourable Seamus O’Regan Jr., minister of Natural Resources. “Congratulations to Columbia Manufacturing Co. Ltd. as the recipient of the 2021 ENERGY STAR Canada award for Sustained Excellence.”
Columbia has been a dedicated member of the ENERGY STAR Canada program since 2007. ENERGY STAR Canada and Columbia are aligned in their intent to provide Canadian consumers with the most energy efficient product on the market. This award acknowledges Columbia’s decades of dedication to selling the largest range of energy efficient skylights in Canada, and is aligned with our corporate philosophy on the environment and sustainability.
