 JACK W. SIGHTS NAMED PRESIDENT, GUARDIAN AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCTS GROUP
 NORTHVILLE, Mich., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Guardian Industries Corp. (Guardian) announced today the appointment of Jack W. Sights as president of the Guardian Automotive Products Group.
 Sights assumes the responsibility as president following several years as Guardian's Group vice president for Automotive Products. Sights joined Guardian following a career in the automotive supply industry which included a position as vice president and general manager of Automotive Operations - Americas for Schlegel Corporation.
 In making the announcement, Guardian President and CEO William Davidson said, "Jack's appointment as president is both reflective of his own accomplishments here at Guardian as well as an indication of Guardian's continuing and increasing commitment to serve as a global supplier to the automotive industry. Guardian has positioned itself to serve all of the world's auto manufacturers. Jack has led Guardian in recent years in enhancing our service level to our customers in North America and Europe, and has also led the successful introduction of a variety of new automotive glass technologies that have been successfully accepted in the marketplace. We expect to see Guardian continue to expand its efforts and remain in its leadership position."
 Guardian, a diversified manufacturer of flat glass and flat glass products, has been expanding aggressively throughout the world in recent years. In early 1991, Guardian began commercial production of float glass in Hungary, after making one of the largest U.S. investments in Eastern Europe to date.
 Furthermore, Guardian has developed a variety of products in the automotive glass fabrication area that has led to recent additional investments to support the company's growing presence as a global glass supplier to the world's automotive industry. Guardian began operating its fourth North American automotive glass fabrication plant in late 1991 located in Ligonier, Ind., and will begin operation in December 1992 of its second European automotive glass facility in Grevenmacher, Luxembourg. The Automotive Products Group also includes Guardian's decorative injection molded plastics subsidiary, Windsor Plastics. Windsor Plastics is a major supplier of painted or plated plastic parts to the automotive and consumer products industries.
 Guardian, founded in 1932, is a leading manufacturer and fabricator of flat glass products used in construction and automotive applications. The company currently operates 11 float glass production lines in the U.S., Europe and South America and has float plants under construction in Thailand, India and Spain. Guardian also has two figure glass lines and extensive glass fabrication facilities in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The company also manufactures a broad line of fiberglass insulation products, molded plastic products and oil production equipment.
