Doing more with glass for automobiles since 1932
Our heritage is rooted in automotive glass. Established as a small glass fabricator in the U.S. automotive capital of Detroit, Michigan in the 1930s, Guardian® began by laminating and fabricating windshields for military vehicles. More than 80 years later, we’ve taken transportation solutions to new levels. Our advanced coatings have led to high performance glass for solar management, and our manufacturing experience has enabled us to produce panoramic sunroofs and to perfect more common glass systems like windshields, backlites or liftgates. Our solutions provide auto makers around the world with options for performance, safety and distinctive style.
