The Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) has named Giroux Glass Inc. the 83rd “Fastest Growing Private Company” in Los Angeles County.

Earlier this month, Nataline Lomedico, Giroux Glass chief executive officer and president, attended a cocktail reception hosted by LABJ at City Club LA. She shared:

“It’s a big deal to me to be recognized as a company that is still growing and reaching new heights, especially considering our history of tremendous growth. When Anne-Merelie Murrell purchased Giroux Glass Inc. in 1991, the company generated less than $1 million annually. In 2009, the company generated approximately $76 million and grew to 450 employees.

“Now that we are majority employee-owned, it is important for us to see continued growth as employee-owners. This year, we saw a 34-percent revenue growth since our previous record, and the year prior, we had grown 39.1-percent … I am proud of what this team has accomplished and am confident that there is more expansion, growth, and advancement headed our way. What a wonderful start to our new fiscal year!”

Giroux Glass has been ranked repeatedly as one of the nation’s top 50 contract glaziers by USGlass magazine.

Giroux Glass also celebrated another honor in November. Barbara Kotsos, director of marketing and public relations, was named a director on the board of the Los Angeles Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC). The organizations works to enhance the success of women in the construction industry.

Many people from Giroux Glass attended the organizations 56th board of directors’ installation, including Lomedico and Murrell.
