Vitro Names Bradley Boone Director of OEM for Residential and Specialty GlassMay 31st, 2019 by Editor
Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) has appointed Bradley P. Boone to director of the original equipment manufacturers (OEM) segment for residential glass and specialty glass markets.
A 39-year company veteran, Boone has spent his entire career in the glass business, primarily in glass manufacturing and in the technical support, sales and marketing of glass products. For the past seven years, he has served as market manager for Vitro Glass’s residential glass segment, where he was responsible for product and marketplace development, and marketing of the company’s proprietary Intercept insulating spacer technology. In his new role, he will continue to manage and support the proprietary technology.
Ricardo Maiz, president of Vitro Architectural Glass, says Boone will lead an independent sales force focused on meeting the needs of OEM customers, including among residential doors and windows, appliances, furniture, mirrors and other applications.
“Many of our OEM customers have glass requirements that are unique to their companies and to their industries,” says Maiz. “Brad’s vast experience with these applications, together with his knowledge of glass engineering, production and processing, will enable him to effectively deliver better service and solutions to our customers.”
During his career, Boone spent more than ten years in float- and fabricated-glass manufacturing and has provided technical and customer support for Vitro Glass brands, such as Solarban and Sungate low-E glasses. He also was manager of Intercept spacer technology for five years.
A resident of Pittsburgh, Boone holds a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering (digital electronics) and a master’s degree in marketing and industrial management (M.B.A.) from West Virginia University.
