The Wagner Companies Name Andrew Chatfield Director of Architectural Glass Systems
February 17, 2010

Milwaukee-based Wagner Company recently created the new position of director of architectural glass systems and has appointed Andrew Chatfield to take on these new responsibilities. Originally from the United Kingdom Chatfield has more than 25 years of technical and sales management experience in the international glass hardware industry, and has been affiliated with Dorma-Glas Geeze GmbH and WSS GmbH as a director of its architectural glass systems.

"Wagner recently completed a deal with Linox Technology Pty of Australia to distribute the Linox range of exterior and interior hardware for glass assemblies, spider walls and interior sliding/pivoting doors throughout North America as well as the Caribbean," Chatfield tells USGNN.com™. "In order to support this product range I have been brought on to develop sales and provide a strong technical background, which specifiers and architects can draw upon."

In his new position, Chatfield will be involved with the strategic growth of the company's newly created department. He will focus on stainless steel, structural glass assembly products produced by Linox Technology.

"My new responsibilities will drive me toward the specification of hardware solutions for clients encompassing not just the actual hardware but the provision of engineering analysis, complimentary products, custom solutions, product training and technical support," says Chatfield. "With the support of a well known and respected family owned company behind me I am looking forward to developing a center of excellence to which architects, specifiers and the glass industry may refer to in order to develop the acceptance and use of glass within buildings along with the correct specification of hardware. Wagner has already made a significant investment in the provision of inventory in which to support this new project and I am confident the market will embrace the introduction of this new service and the benefits it will bring."
