While working with Excel Communications for several years, Danny Yehia also worked as a consultant in the glass industry. He had always been interested in decorative glass and resin – eventually, he wanted to turn this passion into a career of its own. In July of 2010, Danny launched his own company – Surface Products, Inc. (formerly GNAT)

Danny’s first project was a commercial building in Seattle – since then, he has found that starting and running his own company has been a “difficult but fun and rewarding experience.” His most difficult project? A huge commercial building was one that almost killed Danny.
Danny Yehia said that “some luck, hard work and securing unique building materials” are reasons as to why his business has been so successful. Also, Danny noted that Surface Products strives to be very customer centric. Their mission is to cater to the designs of each individual project.
