Unity in the glass industry during COVID-19, from Alan McLenaghan

SageGlass CEO Alan McLenaghan provided an update on the company’s status and operations during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and offered insights on the industry’s strength and collaboration.

“It’s great to see so many people in our industry changing, trying to work in a new way,” McLenaghan said. “We think this industry is a great industry, from the bottom to the top, from everyone in the supply chain, the glassmaker through unit manufacturer through installer through framing manufacturing through now commissioning. We’re one entity, one group that must function together.”

McLenaghan offered some optimism about what’s to come for the industry. “I genuinely think our industry will come back quite strong. We’re going to go through a difficult time. We’ll see a lot of jobs being reduced. It will be hard to get people to invest. But maybe we will see more renovation. We’re going to come back strongly.”
