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®.
