If there were a mantra for Westside Glaziers, it might be, “Work hard and be nice to people.” For over 15 years, the commercial and residential glass shop in Kailua-Kona (or “Kona” as the locals call it) on the Big Island of Hawaii has demonstrated that a positive, can-do attitude can translate to successful partnerships.

“They’re extremely easy to work with, very flexible,” says Western Window Systems Hawaii sales representative Mac McMinn. “And no matter what challenges may come their way, they’ll find solutions.”

McMinn says one of his favorite projects with Westside Glaziers was the Courtyard King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel, on Hawaii’s Big Island. Western Window Systems and Westside Glaziers worked together to supply over 420 Series 600 Sliding Glass Doors to the beachfront hotel.

“They did a great job,” says McMinn. “For such a large project, it was a complete success – no issues.”

Westside Glaziers owner and founder Mike Benacquista also names the Courtyard King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel as one of his most memorable projects, along with a custom home for an architect that utilized Western Window Systems’ multi-slide doors, pivot doors, and awning windows.

“It was a beautiful home and everything went very smoothly,” says Benacquista. “Western Window Systems has exceled my business. I’m very proud to be one of their dealers.”
