Hard-working employee acquires Victoria Glass from long-time owner

Then, in January, employee Aaron Smart, 28, approached Lyon with the idea of buying the company.

Last Thursday, the 49year-old company changed hands.

Despite talk about retiring, Lyon, 75, isn't going to leave right away. He expects to stay on full-time at first, tapering back to part-time at the Quesnel Street business.
