Guardian functional team moves to new HQ in Luxembourg; Reinforces commitment to Europe; Supports ongoing transition to regional business model    Guardian Industries’ Glass Group in Europe, a leading manufacturer of high-quality commercial, residential, interior and automotive glass products, has opened a new headquarters office in Bertrange, Luxembourg. Approximately 120 personnel have relocated from their current offices at the company’s production site in Dudelange, Luxembourg. A key driver for the move is the company’s continuing transition toward a regional business model.

Guus Boekhoudt, Vice President Europe of Guardian Industries’ Glass Group, explains: “At the end of last year, we decided to readjust our organizational model – changing from our previous plant-by-plant approach to a truly regional operation. Our new Europe HQ represents an important step in our move to become ‘One Guardian’ for consistent customer engagement throughout the region.”

He concludes: “We want to continue to attract and retain talent – and it is important to offer our employees an attractive and effective workplace. Moreover, these new facilities provide us with a suitable location for meetings between customers, employees, and suppliers.”
