Glaze of Glory
Michael Tuckwell owns Duraglaze. He specialises in fibreglass used to renovate pools in both homes and commercial public pools. However, he didn't always work in fibreglass - he was initially a carpenter, and was asked to step in to work in fibreglass in a theme park he was working at - to create life-size dinosaurs! He's still working with fibreglass, thirty years later!
Michael did a course in fibreglass at Strathfield TAFE and moved on to building fibreglass boats. He helped set up a fibreglass shop before moving into a sales representative role for a resin company within the fibreglass industry. He subsequently established a fibreglazing company with his then employer and bought the business, Duraglaze, outright in 1995.
