Glo-Hill

Founded in Montreal in 1945, the Glo Hill Company was the creation of brothers-in-law Jack Globus and Harry Hill. Jack’s brothers, Leo and Saul, joined the company shortly after its creation. The Globus brothers along with Harry Hill began developing Glo Hill’s brand which quickly became common place in high end retail outlets.  What started with picture frames and cutlery items, soon developed into chrome hollowware pieces used in home entertaining. Serving pieces (some of which were tiered) along with other kitchen items were labeled as Gourmates by Glo Hill. Many of these pieces featured wood and bakelite handles. While raw bakelite was imported from the U.S., all the handles and accents on Glo Hill’s pieces, along with their style and shape, were manufactured in Glo Hill’s Canadian factory.
