Inview Vehicle Trim: A Lifesaving Idea Whose Time Has Come

Inview Vehicle Trim: A Lifesaving Idea Whose Time Has Come

By Tom Torbjornsen

Last year I had the good fortune to meet a businessman and inventor named Peter Gold. Peter is a very interesting person, having started the highly successful Gold Glass Group in a garage in 1994. He has the unique gift of seeing a need and delivering it to the end consumer, and he also understands marketing and how to communicate. He holds over 80 patents for glass moldings that virtually eliminated hundreds of glass molding applications. Gold retired from Gold Glass Group in 2009, leaving a multimillion dollar corporation to family members.

Brilliant minds do not stop when they retire from industry, and such is the case with Gold. One day he asked himself how he could use his knowledge and business experience to save lives. The result was Inview Vehicle Trim®.

Structure Fire: Town of Wilson

Structure Fire: Town of Wilson

Town of Wilson - At approximately 0310 hrs. the Niagara County Communication Center received a 911 call from a passer-by, reporting a house fire at 3608 Cambria Wilson Rd. The passers-by then approached the residence in an attempt to wake any occupants. The occupants were at the same time, evacuating themselves. The house was occupied by a 67 year old female, a 61 year old male and an 86 year old female. The 86 year old female was assisted out by her son due to heavy smoke and her limited mobility. The homeowner reported he was awoken by the smoke detectors. One dog is believed to have been lost in the fire and one cat was able to get out. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Niagara County Origin and Cause unit. The house suffered major damage and no estimate of loss is available at this time.
