Guardian statement and photo tribute on the passing of William Davidson

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., (March 14, 2009) - The global Guardian Industries family mourns the loss of its visionary leader and guiding light, owner and CEO William Davidson – “Mr.

D” to the more than 19,000 Guardian people around the world. We are deeply saddened by his passing on March 13, 2009 at his home in Bloomfield Hills, Mich.

During his 52 years at the helm of Guardian, he provided vision, leadership and a straightforward approach to building business with an entrepreneurial style second to none. He established a no-nonsense, anti-bureaucratic culture within Guardian Industries and the other organizations he led. He will be remembered for his steady hand that propelled Guardian to the forefront of its many business segments in countries throughout the world. His leadership principles and legacy of innovation and excellence are embedded in the company’s leadership team, which will continue to provide management of the company according to a transition plan established by the team more than a decade ago.
