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.”
