At Giroux Glass, we are fortunate to have many team members who have worked for our company for multiple decades. As part of our 75th anniversary celebration, we are highlighting some of those whose presence over the years have played a vital role in making Giroux Glass the company it is today.
Tom Molinaro is one such longtimer. Now approaching his 25th work anniversary with the company, Tom started in the industry as a field glazier in 1979. He signed on with Giroux in 1997, and currently serves a dual role as estimator and project manager.
Over the span of his career with Giroux, he has proudly worked on:
- Major Los Angeles city landmarks, such as the Egyptian Theater, Dignity Health Sports Park, (formerly known as the StubHub Center), and the Aquarium of the Pacific
- Amazing private residences, including the Sheats–Goldstein Residence
- High-end retail stores throughout Beverly Hills, including Prada, Fendi, and Brioni,
- Multiple projects at LAX, including the retail revamps at Tom Bradley International Terminal, and renovations to Southwest and Terminals 1 and 2.
Tom has witnessed many changes to the industry and to Giroux Glass over the course of his tenure, and discusses some of them in this video. He also thought enough of his workplace to include both of his daughters, Melissa and Monica, in the Giroux family: both worked for Giroux at separate times, beginning as interns while still in high school.
We are grateful to Tom for all of the contributions he’s made to our company since the 90’s, from the projects he’s led to the positive attitude he brings to work every day. We hope he’ll continue to work as part of the Giroux Glass team for many years to come.
