Founded in 2005, Continental Glass Systems LLC (CGS) is the result of genius, experience, and the relentless drive between owners Samir Moussa and Shlomo Epstein, creating today’s powerhouse enveloping services company.
The company began when Samir Moussa, better known as “Sam” throughout the glazing industry, immigrated to the United States from Lebanon back in 1985 when he immediately found work with Glass Wall Corporation in Miami, Florida. Five years later, Sam’s tenacity and vision brought him ownership of that company. He quickly expanded the company’s reach and sales volume by inventing and producing a long string of well-received government-approved window and door systems. Sam ultimately sold Glass Wall, but his love of the business never waned.
In 2005, Sam got together with longtime friend and associate Shlomo Epstein, an accomplished builder in his own right with over 40 years of construction experience to his credit. The two came to recognize a synergy that existed between them when it came to their approach to windows and construction. It was the perfect blend of talent, vision, and drive. These two founders ultimately decided to combine the wealth of their respective experiences and form the nucleus of today’s Continental Glass Systems, LLC.
Since the company’s inception in 2005, Continental Glass Systems flourished and quickly became a respected and trusted name among the major South Florida developers and construction companies. Its long list of accomplishments include the Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles, Florida, the Baha Mar Hotel and Resort in Nassau, Bahamas, and the luxury Jade Signature and Privé condominiums, in Sunny Isles Beach, FL, and Aventura, FL, respectively.
In early 2015 the company’s reputation and mounting success came to the attention of Graham Architectural Products (GAP) and its president, Brian Hurley. GAP is a part of Graham Capital, a well-known $4 billion corporation located in York, Pennsylvania. The architectural division of Graham was seeking to expand and access the South Florida construction market. Meanwhile, Continental was intrigued by the financial strength that Graham had to offer. The synergy was too good to pass up resulting in a mutually beneficial partnership with vision, reputation, and the capital creating the new foundation of today’s Continental Glass Systems, LLC.
