About Capital Glass


Capital Glass was Founded in 1971 by Ken Messerschmidt and so has remained a Vancouver Island based company for over 40 years! Actually, the Messerschmidt family had been in the glass business on Vancouver Island since Ken’s grandfather started out in Victoria in the 1920′s. That makes for a long tradition of quality craftsmanship, superior service and traditional values!


Today, Capital Glass is a modern, certified facility. Our employees have the knowledge and experience to take care of all your needs from the late model luxury automobile, to your RV or classic sports car. We also offer services for your home or business, from your vanity mirror, to thermal glass replacements, to commercial storefront glazing. Our customers return to us again and again for our professional and friendly service…AND we save you time by dealing directly with your insurance provider so you don’t have to.

Capital Glass has three Island locations: Courtenay, Victoria, and Sidney. Several years ago, a transition took place within the company as long-time employees were given the opportunities to purchase the branches individually. Capital Glass in Courtenay has been owned and operated by Tony Ryan since 2003.
