Danny has grown up in the home improvement industry since his youth. His father used to have an aluminium door and window manufacturing company, and Danny worked in sales for the family business. Then, in 1994, Danny founded OSSI along with Stephen Attfield. “I enjoy running into other second-generation door and window people, whose parents did business with mine. It’s like sharing a common history; it’s a peek at nostalgia and progress at the same time” (Motkaluk, 2019).
Now, at Phantom Screens Ontario, Danny remains proud of what his company has offered for each customer. He remembers selling a very first screen in 1994 to a couple in Mississauga who were invited to celebrate the 25th OSSI anniversary on Valentine’s Day, 2019. The couple still loves the product as much as they did back. So, from a standpoint of his goal to deal with the very best products, he has definitely achieved that.
In addition to work, Danny joys spending time with his family. He has three sons, and two grandsons with whom he delights to be together. He also enjoys spending time by the lake in Bobcaygeon, and watching sports, particularly hockey and football. Also, Danny deeply cares about pets. He rescued both dogs and cats so that they can have a second chance at a loving home.
All in all, Danny strongly believes the success is a result of hard work. “Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later” (Motkaluk, 2019).
