Four decades of making breathtaking glass.
Picture a time when the options for replacement interior glass were limited and saying "no - that can’t be done" happened more frequently than anyone liked. This frustration sparked an idea and an opportunity.
Over 35 years ago, Goldray was founded with a mission to help shape the future of construction by challenging ourselves to create something better than what exists. We are dedicated to innovation, collaboration, and doing what’s never been done before in glass and to saying “yes - we can do that.”
Located in Rocky Mountain country, our hot summers, unpredictable wind gust, cold crisp days, and the sometimes-devastating snow blizzards have taught us many things about resilience.
Glass is a durable material. In our facility, we bring resilience to the design so that our products can withstand the extra pressure of high traffic areas or whatever uncertainty Mother Nature has in store.
Our manufacturing facility and office team are all under one roof, allowing old-school face-to-face interactions resulting in tighter communication flows and shortened lead times.
Fast forward to today, where leading architectural and design firms, building owners, and installers across North America count on Goldray Glass as a reliable industry partner. Known for delivering innovative decorative glass products, and for providing custom solutions that solve our client's design challenges and bring their ideas to life.
Working alongside many brilliant minds in the design space, Goldray Glass takes a hands-on approach to every project. This collaboration is what drives the team at Goldray Glass to create the most outstanding pieces for our clients’ interior and exterior building projects.
Towards Tomorrow. Together

We are driven by the opportunity to bring our clients’ ideas to life; producing architectural decorative glass that will make people stop in their tracks to drink in the magnitude and deliver complete satisfaction to our clients.
