INDUSTRYNEWS GGF MARKS SPECIAL YEAR FOR SAINT-GOBAIN »»The GGF congratulates Saint-Gobain on its 350th brand anniversary and evaluates strong working relationship. Saint-Gobain companies have been GGF Members since the early 1990s and today the SaintGobain Group is still as active as ever in the Federation. Brian Baker, current GGF President, has worked with the Federation on behalf of Saint-Gobain companies since they joined the GGF. Most of Saint-Gobain’s input in this period has come from or through Brian. It was therefore fitting that on GGF Members’ Day, 1st September 2015, Brian accepted a special GGF award to commemorate Saint-Gobain’s 350th anniversary. Brian commented: “It was a genuine privilege to accept this award to mark the 350th birthday of SaintGobain. It is extra special to accept it as GGF President on an occasion such as Members Day.” From the Federation’s perspective Saint-Gobain has played an important part in the development of the GGF technical information and expertise. Giles Willson, GGF Managing Director commented: “It’s important for the GGF as the industry’s leading trade organisation to have large global players such as Saint-Gobain on board to help drive our strategy and activity.” Steve Rice, GGF Director of Technical Affairs added: “I congratulate Saint-Gobain on their 350th brand anniversary. It is especially pleasing for me to see their success and longevity in the industry because I have been involved with the company and Brian since they joined the GGF over 25 years ago.” On presenting the GGF’s special award, Nigel Rees, GGF Group Chief Executive added: “The GGF felt it was only appropriate to make this gesture as Saint-Gobain is the oldest brand in our industry and the company and its subsidiary companies have contributed so much to the GGF and the industry over many years.” Visit Start the week with Clearzine. • Every Monday. • Delivered to 14,000 industry emails. • Your weekly news portal. • Mobile-optimised. > 50 dB 46 - 49 dB Your customers, your news... 41 - 45 dB 36 - 40 dB 31 - 35 dB 26 - 30 dB < 26 dB Tel: 01226 321450 Ad_Clearview_882x1218_0215.indd 1 21.04.2015 10:05:44 C L E A RV I E W-U K .
