Women in Business: Lorena Moretto

To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Alberni Valley News will be running features on a number of women in business in Port Alberni. Lorena Moretto is the co-owner of Alberni Glass & Mirror.

Lorena Moretto is co-owner of Alberni Glass & Mirror with her husband, Rusty Sawatzky.

They purchased the business in 2003, and a year later purchased the building.

Lorena is the one that you meet when walking into their business located at 3599 3rd Ave. She worked in the hospitality industry before coming to Port Alberni and loves working with the public.

“No two days are ever the same, I love the diversity of this job,” she said. “One day I could be helping someone with a glass enclosure for their shower, or cutting glass for that photo frame that is treasured. We also supply windows, glass deck rail systems, skylights and custom mirrors, to name a few.

“The ICBC Glass Express continues to grow. We offer same day replacement for windshields and also repair rock chips.

“We pride ourselves on our customer service, on time all the time. We do jobs for both individuals and commercial businesses and feel no job is too big or too small.”
