Most employers don’t train young workers like they used to. In 1979, the average young worker received 2.5 weeks of training per year. By 1995, training time fell to just 11 hours. More recent data has been hard to find, by 2011 only a fifth of employees reported receiving on-the-job training from their employers over the past five years.
In 2015, Arrow Glass Industries noticed this gap and decided to change the game. Kristina Falla, Onboarding and Retention Specialist created AGI University, (also known as AGI U). It’s a three week long training process including rigorous testing, skill building, and continued education for all new comers and current employees. Now AGI U has developed into one of Arrow’s the most valuable divisions, growing our retention rate to an astonishing 97%.
AGI is an industry leader known for it’s innovative practices. This continued education class sets us above all other competitors and gives you the piece of mind knowing your job will be completed by the industry best AGI employees.

All glass is not created equal, therefore you have to find the right glass for each space within your project. Keep in mind, you may have to use 3 or 4 types of glass to complete your build. So, have you thought about using tempered glass?
Top 4 Ways To Incorporate Tempered Glass
Here are the top four ways builders utilize tempered glass:
- Stair Railing – sturdy and holds up to a lot of wear and tear
- Table Tops – try it for a conference room table or reception desk
- Display Cases – great choice for retail store fixtures and shelving
- Office Partitions – doesn’t break if someone bumps into it
Tempered glass has a lot of versatility. It falls within the “safety” glass family, because when it is hit or damaged, it immediately crumbles to the floor instead of shattering everywhere.
Tempered Glass Certification
When you need tempered glass, look for one that is certified by the SGCC (Safety Glazing Certification Council). AGI holds tempered glass certifications for 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 inch glass thicknesses. Tempered glass from AGI is glass you can trust for all your projects.

Glass cabinet doors are a welcome addition to any kitchen. Use glass to provide a fresh and modern look to any space. They not only break up the monotony of repetitive solid cabinet faces, but they allow the home buyer to showcase beautiful dishware and collectibles.
Clear glass cabinet doors create an illusion of depth and increased visual square footage. Whereas decorative glass, allows your kitchen to maintain the luxurious and elegant look of glass without your buyer worrying about having “less-than-perfectly” stacked dishware. There are several types of glass you may use for your kitchen, such as clear, reeded, frosted and seeded, which gives you flexibility in how you design and style the kitchen.
Make your builds stand out with a showstopping kitchen that features glass cabinetry. Contact AGI for all your cabinet glass needs.
