Edgetech Marks Passing Of Founder Michael Glover
Edgetech are sad to announce the death of Michael Glover, the company’s founder. Michael started Edgetech back in 1987, and was one of the key creative drivers behind what would become the company’s flagship product – Super Spacer.
Super Spacer, the pioneering warm-edge spacer, went on to help transform world glazing, and has been fitted in tens of millions of windows all around the world.
In 1989, Edgetech became part of Lauren International, but Michael remained intimately involved in the business. In 2011, the company was bought by Quanex Building Products.
Michael leaves behind an amazing legacy of innovation, and a vision that’s helped shape the fenestration industry into what it is today.
Kevin E. Gray, CEO of Lauren International and former Edgetech president comments: “Michael was first a family man who was full of kindness, and second an entrepreneur who was always looking for new solutions to old challenges.
“It was an honour to have worked with him for many years and to watch his vision become reality. My condolences go out to Michael’s family, colleagues and many friends. He will be missed.”
Erin Johnson, marketing director for Quanex, also commented: “Michael was the visionary behind Edgetech and Super Spacer, and his legacy lives on today through his family and through his contributions to creating higher-performing building products.
“After 30-plus years in the field, his invention is still making a tremendous impact in homes and buildings around the globe. On behalf of Quanex and all of us who knew and worked with Michael, our thoughts are with his family and friends.”
