GUARDIAN INDUSTRIES CORP. SUPPORTS DETROIT SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA EUROPEAN TOUR

Auburn Hills, MI (November 26, 2001) – Guardian Industries Corp., a leading global glass manufacturer headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, will support the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s (DSO) 12-city, two-week European tour this fall. The tour begins on October 4 in Dublin, Ireland, and continues in cities throughout England, Wales, Germany, Austria and Spain, before it concludes on October 17 in Barcelona, Spain.

The 2001 European Tour is made possible, in part, through the Guardian Touring Fund, established last year. In keeping with its long-time commitment to the communities where it does business, Guardian Industries, which has a rich history in Southeast Michigan, established the fund to allow the Orchestra to showcase its talents to audiences around the world. The fund has already successfully supported the Guardian Sunshine Tour, which played to a number of sold-out Florida audiences this past January.

“We believe the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is achieving levels of excellence and recognition that are beneficial to our region,” says William Davidson, president and CEO of Guardian Industries Corp. “The Guardian Touring Fund allows the Orchestra to showcase its talents in cities around the globe.”

The unique partnership between Guardian and the DSO began when Conductor Neeme J@rvi and Davidson met at a Detroit Pistons basketball game several years ago. Their friendship flourished and they discovered a shared vision for excellence in their respective organizations.

“The Detroit Symphony Orchestra represents the diverse and rich culture of Southeast Michigan,” says Ralph Gerson, executive vice president of Guardian. “We are proud of this culture and of this world-class symphony, and want to share it with the rest of the world.”

Guardian Industries Corp. is a leading worldwide manufacturer of float glass and fabricated glass products for the commercial and residential construction industries, based in Auburn Hills, Michigan. One of the Top 100 Global Automotive Suppliers, Guardian Automotive provides complete exterior systems to the global automotive industry. Guardian Fiberglass, Inc., a Guardian subsidiary, is one of the largest manufacturers of fiberglass in the world and occupies a significant and growing position in the building materials distribution business. Guardian, its subsidiaries and affiliates employ 17,500 people and operate facilities throughout North America, Europe, South America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
