Based in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada AGNORA is a new and modern state-of-the-art architectural glass company serving the entire North American market.

The plant was uniquely designed to manufacture architectural glass products, up to 240” x 130” in size.  The company is equipped with the most advanced and modern glass processing machinery to fulfill the most unique needs and requirements of top architects. AGNORA’s automatic processes, amongst others include glass cutting, seaming, CNC edge processing, polishing, drilling, shaping, notching, tempering, heat strengthening, custom laminating, roller painting and IG production.

Ralf Pichler, Director of Operations states: “At a very early stage we realized that in order to be successful we need to be efficient and versatile. One of the challenges for us would be to find a software solution that could fit our needs perfectly. In essence we were looking for a strong foundation for our business. During our extensive search and investigation of solutions available on the market place we realized very quickly that the modern and state-of-the art FeneVision® ERP, developed by Ohio based FeneTech, was the way to go. We were really impressed with their software demonstration and followed up by attending their annual software user conference and GPAD event in Cleveland, Ohio. During this event we were able to network with many existing FeneTech customers. We were more than impressed to learn how satisfied they are with the software and what a great service they receive from the FeneTech team.”

Jeff Wilkins, General Manager adds: “There were many factors which we considered before making our final decision. FeneVision is a true ERP system, very easy to use because of native and online graphics in all areas of the system. This will allow us to eliminate many costly mistakes. Furthermore, FeneTech offers the web center for our final customers, which we could not find with any other software supplier in this industry. This tool will offer us a completely new and efficient way to serve our clients. Also, the software is Microsoft SQL Server based and fully integrated, based on one central database structure.”

Horst Mertes, Director of Global Sales for FeneTech comments: “We are very delighted about AGNORA’s decision to chose our product. This is again proof that today glass processing companies need a new and modern software ERP solution and not software which was developed decades ago. Like always, we will offer our excellent service and support to AGNORA and welcome them as a new customer amongst more than 160 internationally.

Ron Crowl, President of FeneTech closes by saying: “We are honored that this group of industry veterans selected FeneVision to be their ERP solution partner after a careful and thorough review of potential partners. We are very pleased to be associated with AGNORA and our continued growth around the world.”
