Guardian Glass Europe

Guardian Receives Álava Chamber of Commerce International Business Award

The award recognizes Guardian Llodio for its strong export sales as well as its contributions to the local community

Bertrange, Luxembourg, February 15, 2016 – The Álava Chamber of Commerce and Industry has honoured a company from Guardian Industries’ Glass Group in Europe -- its float glass plant in Llodio, Spain -- with its International Business Award. Each year, the Chamber recognizes three companies that stand out for both their focus on exports and their contribution to the local community. This is the 30th year that the Chamber of Commerce has presented these awards.

Among the criteria assessed were total sales, the number of countries and establishments to which the company exports, and the level of its presence in other countries. In Spain, Guardian Europe has two factories for producing and fabricating glass—Llodio and Tudela. It also operates a comprehensive network of warehouses across the country for distributing and marketing its products. In addition, SRG Global, a Guardian company, has automotive trim plants in both Ibi and Liria.

Javier García, plant manager of Guardian Llodio, and Eva Muñoz, marketing manager for Spain, were present to receive the award. “The history of Guardian in Álava spans several decades and our constant efforts to develop new products that create value for our customers make it possible for us to increase our exports,” says García, a 12-year veteran. “We are proud not only of our international presence, but also for being an active member of the community, such as collaborating with the University of the Basque Country’s School of Architecture to help train future architects, among other initiatives.”
