Gary Sprague

The Frameless Hardware Company (FHC) has appointed Gary Sprague to vice president of design and development. Previously, Sprague served as vice president of design and engineering at C.R. Laurence for 20 years and as a manufacturer and designer of products supplied to the glass and glazing industry for 14 years. Across his 30-plus-year tenure in the industry, Sprague has designed and developed more than 70 glass industry installation tools and architectural systems, 22 of which hold international patents and five new U.S. patents pending.

In his new role, Sprague is tasked with steering research and new product development for the company. Additionally, he will oversee FHC’s testing and certification programs.

“We are incredibly pleased and fortunate to have Gary on board as we continue to solidify our position and chart our path in this marketplace,” says Chris Hanstad, president of FHC. “Product innovation is one of our core principles here at FHC, and given Gary’s track record I’m confident he’ll be instrumental in taking us to the next level of product offerings. He’s been responsible for so many of this industry’s break-through products, and the most exciting thing, to me, is that he’s just getting started.”
