Giroux Glass, Las Vegas: 20 Years of Resilience

Last week as we celebrated our twentieth anniversary in Las Vegas, we also celebrated the resilience of the people in our company responsible for our success and longevity. A dream may have brought us here, but resilience kept us here. Through the years of highs and lows, the strength of our people was the constant reason for our decision to stay in Las Vegas. The challenges always brought out the best in our team and we are so fortunate that many of our original team members are still  with us now. The fast pace and ever-changing innovation of Las Vegas [...]

Giroux Glass’ Las Vegas Projects Tour

On Friday, December 14th I had a productive day touring a few of Giroux’s completed projects. This whirlwind expedition was guided by Jesse and included more than a couple of my Giroux partners. Stops along the way included Wynn, Palazzo and Venetian hotels, where we were able to view various challenging aspects of quality glass, glazing, façades and curtain wall installations. I really enjoyed having this opportunity to visit completed works as well as jobs in progress. This tour included several top-line and detailed office meetings as we plan for an unbelievable 2019. Looking back on 2018, we at Giroux Glass [...]

The Inner Cities Capital Connections just released their 2018 Impact Report and it features Giroux Glass as an example of creating inclusive prosperity in inner cities.

Noted in the opening paragraph: “When you walk into the offices of Giroux Glass in Los Angeles you’re greeted by the company’s core values printed – fittingly – on large glass walls: Growth. Integrity. Respect. Ownership. Unity. Excellence.” And this speaks to all of our partners, friends and associates. The INITIATIVE FOR A COMPETITIVE INNER CITY (ICIC) is a national nonprofit [...]

A Week in the (Work) Life of CEO/president Nataline Lomedico

August 6th to the 10th, I spent a really nice week of visiting our different offices and job sites and it reminded me why I love working with our team at Giroux. There is so much talent at all of our Giroux Glass locations.  This week in particular was a whirlwind tour.  Over the years, I’ve been consistently impressed by how prepared for visitors are our on-site crews are when random visitors appear. It is a testament to their training, professionalism and passion, and this visit was not an exception. Every single team member was equipped, knowledgeable, safe, polite.  It [...]

Farewell to PM, Bruce Johnson

                        We had a party in our Los Angeles office yesterday to honor and celebrate our partner and project manager, Bruce Johnson, who recently announced his retirement. Bruce worked out of the Los Angeles office for most of his time with Giroux, and recently relocated to our San Bernardino location to reduce his commute drive time.  (So some of us here in Los Angeles had to ease into missing him over the past year.) We all will be forever grateful for Bruce’s colorful personality, and his commitment to our [...]
