Guardian Says Closure of Local Distribution Centers to Have Limited Impact on Production, AGRR Divisions

Guardian Automotive management anticipates the company’s exit from the local distribution business will have minimal impact on the production of glass and the automotive glass retail business.

“We still sell our products through the truckloads, so we expect a limited impact on production,” says Matthew Eder, a spokesperson for Guardian Automotive.

“Guardian Auto Glass works with many different distributors—all of which offer Guardian products—so we expect limited impact on the retail business,” he adds.

Employees at the sold distribution centers will be offered employment under the new ownership, he says.  

“We are providing a severance package and employment assistance as appropriate [for employees at facilities being liquidated],” Eder says.

The company had announced Monday it is selling off and liquidating its distribution centers. Six locations will be sold, while five will be liquidated.
