Laurence, a distinguished industry leader and manufacturer of superior quality architectural products and systems, announced today the appointment of Gerald Hendrick as President of their U.S. Aluminum Division. Bringing 30 years of industry experience, Hendrick will support the continued growth of the CRL-U.S. Aluminum brand.
Gerald Hendrick 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. He brings a fresh perspective on the glazing industry from his 10 years’ experience as 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 Company 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.”
Gerald Hendrick will be based out of CRL-U.S. Aluminum’s central Waxahachie, Texas service center and will help bolster operational growth initiatives as well as oversee the division’s sales and estimating teams. Early 2014 marks the ground-breaking for a large-scale expansion of this important service center. Once complete, it will feature double the amount of square footage that will enhance operations, manufacturing, and overall inventory. This exciting project along with the redevelopment of other service centers, serves as C.R. Laurence Company’s inaugural focused initiative for refining and improving the CRL-U.S. Aluminum brand.
