With the vision as a Guide

The core values remain. We are still a family business. We continue to be dedicated to our craft. The company retains its distinctive Italian heart and heritage. But now there’s a Canadian connection.

Gian Luigi Ongaro Managing Director

Not many can say they were literally born into the custom kitchen cabinetry business. When one of your first memories is helping your father separate kitchen cabinet screws, you get to know a business from the ground up.

Living and working in an environment of custom craftsmanship, Gian Luigi’s love and passion for Italian design came naturally.

As Gian Luigi grew, so too did the company. The family workshop is now a 20,000 sq.ft. automated design and fabrication centre. And Gian Luigi isn’t separating screws. With a vision of expanding the family’s brand internationally, he began with a good education.

  • Undergraduate Degree in International Trade – University of Venice
  • Masters Degree in International Economy – University of Venice
  • Master of Business Administration – Schulich School of Business, York University

His work in the family business in Italy gave Gian Luigi a practical grounding in sales development, marketing strategy, project management and business leadership.

With the combination of education and real-world experience, Gian Luigi followed his vision and made the move to Canada. After working with the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario in project coordination and market research, Gian Luigi co-founded Trevisana with Domenico Siniscalco.

The partnership quickly found success and Trevisana was soon the ‘go to’ partner for many of the leading architects, interior designers and project developers in the business. After just three years, the company earned the Business Excellence Award for the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario.

When he’s away from the world of custom kitchens, Gian Luigi is an avid cyclist, he’ll play or watch a soccer match at every opportunity, and when the soccer fields are buried in snow, he heads for the slopes.

Domenico Siniscalco General Manager

It’s no exaggeration to say that Domenico is a wizard of custom kitchens and cabinetry. Just the numbers tell the tale:

  • Over 20 years in the business
  • 5000 custom kitchen projects completed
  • Over 2000 projects on the go

It all gives Domenico comprehensive knowledge and experience in every aspect of the business, including space planning, design, manufacturing, installation, project management, marketing and customer service.

Born in Italy, Domenico attended Universita Degli Studi Camerino before starting his career in import and design.

After moving to Canada in the early 1990s, Domenico quickly built an impressive resume and reputation with his passionate dedication to his work at some of the top Italian custom-kitchen design and fabrication companies.

Domenico co-founded Trevisana with Gian Luigi Ongaro in 2013.

If Domenico brings many different passions and skills to his work at Trevisana, it’s true of his time away from the company too. Domenico is a children’s soccer coach, loves to play the drums and will gladly get into a debate about politics!
