Mike Boyle, president of Bend, Ore.-based Glass Mechanix, represented the new Global Glass Conservation Alliance at the 2009 NACE Expo and the 2009 GreenBuild International Conference and Expo, according to a Nov. 12 release. Boyle serves as president of the GGCA, which was formerly the National Windshield Repair Association. “It is important to get the word out there on the new mission and objectives of the GGCA,” Boyle said in the release. “We have expanded our reach beyond auto glass repair, and are embracing all entities actively engaged in reducing the impact of glass and glass products upon the earth.”Boyle spoke to a group of NWRA members and interested parties last week about the GGCA during the NACE Expo in Las Vegas. He covered general information about the group’s new structure which encompasses “councils” that focus on particular segments of the industry, such as windshield repair, scratch removal and float glass recycling. He also spoke about current initiatives that are directly encouraging the repair, restoration, re-use and recycling of glass, including legislative work and the installation of windshield recycling machines at waste facilities around the country. This week, Boyle is attending the 2009 GreenBuild International Conference and Expo in Phoenix, and working in the GGCA booth to help educate show attendees about the organization.Glass Mechanix re-introduced its Daytona Auto Glass Repair System and its newly developed XRS Glass Restoration System to the audiences at both events.
