Joe Butler was recently named senior vice president, sales and service for Glaston Americas. He will be based in Glaston’s office in Mount Laurel, N.J., overseeing the company’s sales and service operations in the Americas.

Butler has over 20 years of sales experience including various leadership roles with manufacturing companies focused on the fenestration industry. Most recently, he led the North American sales team at Guardian Industries where he was responsible for flat glass products in all key market segments, including its value-added low-E portfolio for commercial and residential customers.
“With his extensive experience and excellent industry know-how, Joe will be a tremendous addition not only to our team in the Americas region, but also to the entire Glaston business,” says Sasu Koivumäki, CSO and deputy CEO at Glaston.

“Automation is becoming increasingly more prevalent in the everyday life at a glass factory which will enable all of us to further develop the glass processing industry. I’m looking forward to working together with all our customers to improve their businesses and to meet their growing demands for quality and productivity. Glaston’s versatile product portfolio supports our customers’ needs for new machines and upgrades, which are backed by the best service team in the business,” says Butler.
