Specialty glass processor McGrory Glass announced Ron Gerhardt, previously of Ridgeview Glass, has joined its glass entrance systems department in architectural sales.

Gerhardt comes to McGrory with more than 36 years of experience in manufacturing, installation, and architectural glass entrance design.

“We are pleased that Ron has joined the ever-growing McGrory team, and will be helping us to promote our entrance department,” says Chris McGrory, president of McGrory Glass. “His experience is quite impressive, and we have no doubt he will be a welcomed addition to the division and the company as a whole.”

He introduced heavy glass entrances to Hordis Brothers in 1985 and was instrumental in numerous regional entrance department start-ups with Hordis and HGP Industries prior to their acquisition by Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope®.
