The United Kingdom glass manufacturing operation of Guardian Industries global glass group will host a Triple Anniversary Celebration (one , five and ten years) and will unveil its new advanced magnetron sputter coater on Tuesday, June 11, at its Goole plant in northern England.
The plant began operations in 2003, expanded in 2008 with a glass laminating line, and added the glass coater last year, according to a company release.
The new coater allows the Goole plant to produce high-performance Guardian ClimaGuard low-E glass products.
The June 11 celebration will feature a keynote presentation by Scott Thomsen, president of Guardian’s Global Flat Glass Division, a ribbon-cutting ceremony, tour of the plant, coater and laminating line, a visit to the interactive glass room and new products display, and lunch.
“We have successfully navigated a double dip recession and managed to achieve growth at a time when many well-established companies have fallen short,” says Mark Bristow, Guardian regional manager for the UK and Ireland. “We greatly attribute this success to our ‘best-in-service’ approach and our commitment to the independent glass and glazing industry that has shown the same strength and ability to adapt that we have. This mutual support and success is certainly something to be celebrated.”
