Carib Glass was created in 2002 with the object of establishing a full specialized glazing service to the residential and commercial market's throughout the Turks and Caicos. The original partnership of Gale Anspach and Jimmy Thatcher bought together a combination of 30+ years of successful business in the awning, door, glass, hurricane protection, mirror, and window markets in the Turks & Caicos and Bermuda. Gale retired after building the local TCI aspect of the company up from a truck with 2 guys to include moving to our current location and 8 employees. Ron Prescott came aboard in January 09 as the new general / managing partner and has bought with him 10 years experience as a glass shop owner / manager in Florida.
When Carib Glass first opened its doors the main objective was to re-establish ourselves as the local source for accurate information, quality service, quality products, and quality installations by professionals in the glazing field. We pride ourselves in the fact that when we do the installations we are able to extend the manufactures warranty b/c we are confident that the product is installed correctly. Over the years, the business has gone from strength to strength, expanding its product lines and services. Today, the firm has 8 employees with additional expertise and services on hand from Island Glass in Bermuda. The Company sells a complete line of Windows, Doors, Hurricane Protection, Bermuda/ Bahama Style Shutters, Awnings, Shower and Tub Enclosures, Mirrored closet doors, Commercial Entrance Ways (all glass and framed, Steel Roller Doors and Grills for Building Protection as well as a wide selection of stock items that include Glass, Mirror, Plexi glass, Glazing supplies, Clear corrugated lexan storm panels, Screening material, Aluminum extrusions, Replacement door and window parts (wheels, locks, handles, closures, etc….). We also specialize in custom manufactured products to meet the ever changing needs of developers,residents, and architects.
Our main objective has always been to sell, install, and service quality products and to eliminate headaches with the glazing field in the TCI. A quality product is only as good as the installation and we fire home the installation aspect to eliminate the headaches-if done right the first time then there are no problems. The most recent Carib Glass projects include the newest and hottest spot on Grace Bay-Gavensvoort-(glass balustrade/railing, folding walls, and large missile impact rated windows --biggest windows on the beach!), glass balustrade at the new Veranda project, extensive renovation work on Pine Cay, windows and doors at the new Wine Cellar building, awnings doors and windows and numerous high end sales and installation of products at private homes in Provo, Pine Cay, and North Caicos
