The activities of the Guardian Group, which belongs to the Koch Industries, one of the largest privately owned company groups of the USA, are divided into two divisions. The investment participant Guardian Glass produces glass products and glass wool insulation for the commercial, residential, automotive, and technical segments. Its main products cover float and laminated glass, tempered glass, low-emission (Low-E) glass, mirror and figured glass, solar glass, insulating and reflective glass products.

Guardian Glass, with its European headquarters in Luxembourg, serves customers in 160 countries with its 26 production units, from which 10 is to find in Europe, producing 5000 kilometres of float glasses per day.

Guardian bought shares of the Orosháza glass factory in 1998, which meant a large and significant investment back in the day, making the production of float glasses − in addition to flat glass production − possible in Orosháza from 1991. Thanks to continuous developments and investments, the plant has been modernized in the past decades.
