It’s All About the Details

By Kyle Galdeira Posted in: RemodelRenovating

Jayco Hawaii Inc. has helped Island residents and businesses add that personalized touch to various structures since 1973. The full-service operation specializes in architectural metal and glasswork in both residential and commercial fields. Applications are seemingly endless as the company’s past projects have included creating and installing railings, awnings, sun-shades, grilles, gates and screens.

Owner and president Marc Delay is leading the business in its third generation after taking over for his uncle who had previously stepped in for Delay’s grandfather.

“It’s a family company, and Jayco is known for providing good quality products, and we will get each job right all the time,” Delay said. “We take pride in every job we do. We’re thorough, very detail-oriented and we’re there to please the customer no matter what.”

Jayco Hawaii Inc. is poised to aid in a wide variety of new construction and renovation projects, both outside and within various structures. Delay mentioned that his company is currently working on a job in Kaneohe for a client who was looking for an attractive yet secure fence to surround the property, while also including a rolling gate and some pedestrian gates. For work on a home’s interior, Jayco is well versed at fabricating and installing decorative and functional railings and staircases to provide a high-end, modern look with such features as metal cables and glass accents.

Commercially, Delay discussed Jayco’s work on both hotel and condominium renovation and building projects. The company provided the glass railings at the Trump Tower in Waikiki, as well as the Aulani’s balcony railings at the picturesque Disney Resort.

“It’s hands-on experience that goes into every job,” explained Delay, who also mentioned that all of the company’s employees have either been trained at specialized trade schools or hold engineering degrees. “All of our field workers on the commercial side are ironworkers, so they’ve gone through the ironworker apprenticeship program.

“We are the only company in Hawaii that manufactures on island,” added Delay, who noted that Jayco Hawaii Inc. is a complete design, manufacture and build company. “All our competitors bring in their materials from the Mainland where it’s fabricated. We have a support fabrication company in California that builds all our specialty parts and brackets just for us here in Hawaii, and we have about 12 people working in that facility and 25 working here.”

Delay explained that by keeping its skilled and fully-trained employees on staff rather than hiring on a cyclical basis to keep up with pending jobs, time and money are saved, and the added value is then passed on to the customers.

“When other businesses pick up work, they hire from wherever they can, while we keep ourselves staffed all the time so we don’t have to continuously train people,” he said. “If you’re always training new employees, you can’t expect to have the quality that we offer. It’s a benefit to both our pocketbook and the quality of each job, which is our No. 1 concern.”

Jayco Hawaii Inc. works directly with architects and the home or business owner to meet their specific needs, and Delay advises customers to have a concept, design idea or sketch on hand to aid in the drafting and final design process. Call Jayco at 676-7000 for a free estimate.
