SRG Global™ to Build a New Manufacturing Facility in Bolesławiec, Poland

Bolesławiec, Poland – June 25, 2009

SRG Global Inc. held a Corner Stone Ceremony today to officially launch the construction of a new $25 million automotive trim manufacturing facility in Bolesławiec, Poland.

SRG Global™, a Guardian Company, is part of Guardian Industries, a private group with business operations on five continents. Guardian ranks among the world´s largest manufacturers of float glass and fabricated glass products. It is also a major manufacturer of fiberglass insulation and a significant player in the building materials distribution business. Guardian currently operates a float glass plant in Częstochowa, Poland.

SRG Global is a worldwide supplier to the automotive industry. The company provides high value coatings on plastics and offers customers more than 100 years of combined experience in the automotive business. SRG Global employs more than 4,000 people at its manufacturing plants and technical centers in the United States, Europe, and China.

The new injection molding and painting facility will use the latest equipment and technologies available, including “green” water base paint applications. Expected to be completed in 2010, the plant will create around 200 new direct jobs.

SRG Global’s planning and development team chose to invest in the City of Bolesławiec in the Lower Silesia region because they feature essential comparative advantages such as: dedicated state, regional and municipal administration; a flexible and pro-active approach to foreign investors; improving infrastructure including road connections within the vicinity of strategic customers in Germany and Central Europe; availability of skilled manpower; and educational and scientific facilities. Guardian’s decision to invest in Bolesławiec was strongly motivated by the excellent preparatory work of the City Hall of Bolesławiec and the Walbrzych Special Economic Zone, Invest Park.

“We are very pleased with the welcome and support we’ve received from your local and regional economic development officials,” said SRG Global Poland Managing Director Enrique Martinez at the ceremony. “We believe this facility is strategically located to meet the needs of our customers now and as we continue to increase our global footprint.”

Also participating in the ground-breaking were Mr. Piotr Roman, Mayor of the City of Bolesławiec; Mr. Jan Banik, Vice President of Invest Park, the Special Economic Zone; and Mr. Cezary Przybylski, Head of the Bolesławiec Poviat.
