Los Angeles-based C.R. Laurence Co. Inc. has appointed Gerald Hendrick as president of the company’s U.S. Aluminum division.
Hendrick has more than 30 years’ experience in the industry and has held senior management positions with Assa Abloy, and most recently, Dorma USA, where he acted as president of the Entrance Systems Division and previously senior vice president of sales. He comes to C.R. Laurence with diverse experience and mastery in organizational management, operations, production, sales and strategy development, according to the company. He also is a former executive vice president of Atlanta Door Controls, a regional glazing contractor.
“Continuing to strengthen the already robust U.S. Aluminum brand under the C.R. Laurence Co. has been a major priority for us,” says Lloyd Talbert, president of C.R. Laurence. “Gerald’s extensive experience and success in the architectural glass and glazing industry, paired with his deep understanding of various product lines in our own portfolio, will help to further establish CRL-U.S. Aluminum as an innovative thought leader. We are thrilled to add Gerald to the CRL family.”
Hendrick will be based out of CRL-U.S. Aluminum’s central Waxahachie, Texas, service center.
