G&L Releases Video in Celebration Of 50 Years

Friday, April 08, 2022

G&L celebrated its golden anniversary after 50 years in business. In honour of this milestone, G&L launched a video to tell the story of the company’s humble beginnings and journey to success.  

G&L has grown so much since its inception that many employees weren’t aware of the company’s rich history in the construction industry. For others who have been employees of the company for decades, the video was an opportunity to reminisce and recall memories of the earlier days. 

Founded by a young immigrant couple who left Italy behind to start a new life in Canada, G&L started with a single truck.  The documentary-style video highlights treasured family photos, interviews with longtime friends and supporters of G&L, and tells the story of G&L’s role in building our great cities. 

G&L premiered the anniversary video at a drive-in style movie night at Brock Aggregates’ Tottenham Pit. It took several months of coordination, interviews, and editing, but we’re so proud of the 50 Year Video we launched to tell the story of G&L: where we started, where we are, and where we’re going. 

Check out the video here!

TORONTO REDIMIX GETS A FRESH LOOK

TORONTO REDIMIX GETS A FRESH LOOK

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

We’re excited to share that Toronto Redimix has undergone an entirely new look. Following the rebranding of our parent company, G&L, updating of the logo created almost 15 years has given Toronto Redimix a fresh new look.

Each of G&L’s sub-brands was assigned its own key brand colour, drawing upon the natural elements that inspire the products. Toronto Redimix is red, to ensure consistency and recognition. These colours help to easily identify the brand at a glance, and carve out a more distinct brand presence.

Furthering this was the creation of each sub-brand’s individual icon, based upon G&L’s legacy round logo, but modernized to convey each brand’s unique product offering. Toronto Redimix’s icon is made of oblong, ovulary circles representing the exposed aggregate found in concrete. The icons serve as another method to unify all brands under the G&L umbrella while creating a unique pattern distinct to each sub-brand. Our goal with this rebranding was to create something enduring that would appear contemporary today, yet be timeless enough to last throughout the next decade. We’re extremely happy with the result and look forward to rolling out our new look.
