Liniar’s parent company, Quanex Building Products Corporation, celebrated its 50th anniversary of being listed on the NYSE on June 28. To mark the occasion, Bill Griffiths, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer was joined by Roger Hartshorn and other members of the Quanex leadership team on the infamous podium in Wall Street, New York City.
Quanex is a North American industry-leading supplier of cutting edge energy-efficient window and door systems and components, with $600+ million in sales listed on the NYSE. It acquired the Flamstead Group, which incorporates HL Plastics, the manufacturing company behind the Liniar brand, and Avantek Machinery, in June 2015, adding to its already impressive portfolio of businesses.
Bill had the privilege of ringing the bell at 4pm to signal the end of the day’s trading before using the gavel to continue a long-running tradition at one of the financial world’s most renowned settings.
It has become highly sought after for celebrities or corporation executives to stand behind the NYSE podium and push the button to signal the bells to ring, an act that is considered an honour and has become a symbol of a lifetime of achievement.
With his appearance on the NYSE podium, Roger joins an impressive list of people who have taken part in the bell ringing ceremony.
