GANA Tempering Division Announces New Chair

The Glass Association of North America's (GANA) tempering division has announced that Cliff Monroe will be the new chairperson of the division.

Monroe, the manufacturing expert at Arch Aluminum and Glass Co., has been in the industry nearly 32 years, having worked at Guardian Industries for 24 of those years. During part of his time in the industry, Monroe has worked on vacuum deposition and in quality control positions, shifting into the fabrication end of the industry in the mid 1990s. He's been with Arch Aluminum for five years.

For more than 20 years, Monroe has been a member of GANA, serving most recently as the tempering division education chair and having been named to the Insulated Glass Certification Council (IGCC) board of governors. He's been serving on the board of Glazing Industry Code Committee since the beginning of 2005.

Monroe will take the reigns of the tempering division officially at the tempering division membership meeting that will be held during Glass Week 2006. He replaces current chairperson Ren Bartoe of Vesuvius USA.

"With the multitude of Division technical activities, fantastic membership growth and continuing marketing programs, I look forward to leading this group of individuals made up of the finest in our industry," said Monroe.
