GUARDIAN UNVEILS NEWLY-RENOVATED ALBION INSULATION FIBERGLASS PLANT

More than 100 new jobs created

ALBION, Mich., – (April 26, 2006) – Guardian Fiberglass Inc., a subsidiary of Guardian Building Products Inc., announced that it has completed expansion of its manufacturing plant, effectively doubling production at the facility.

The expansion is part of a $25-million investment that has created more than 100 new jobs. The project also includes new offices and exercise facilities that will be completed in the next few weeks.

The plant celebrated with an Open House that was attended by nearly 400 guests. U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz (R-7th District) was on hand and Lee Schultheiss, immediate past chairman of the Greater Albion Chamber of Commerce, presented the plant with its Manufacturer of the Year Award.

“We’ve received wonderful support from local, regional and state officials for this expansion,” said Plant Manager Tom Gruber. “Plus, we’ve been able to put together a great team of employees who will really make this expansion a success. This expansion helps meet the growing need for fiberglass in the marketplace.”

Guardian made its initial investment in Albion in 1980, converting a television picture tube manufacturing facility to the fiberglass insulation process. The plant has operated continuously since that time, turning Guardian into one of Albion’s largest employers.

Guardian Fiberglass, Inc. is a subsidiary of Guardian Building Products, Inc. (GBP). As a leading manufacturer of insulation, Guardian offers a complete line of light density fiberglass building insulation products for the residential and commercial construction markets throughout the United States and Canada. The Albion plant began operations as Guardian Fiberglass in 1980. Guardian operates five fiberglass manufacturing plants in North America, with Albion being the first and largest.

Guardian Building Products, Inc. is one of the largest building products distribution networks in North America, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Guardian Industries Corp. based in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
