Featured Employee

Mike StatenEngineering Process Technician, Auburn Glass Plant / Auburn, Indiana

In June of 1991, Mike launched his career in automotive glass with Guardian Industries where he began in production and later transitioned to an Engineering Process Technician.  Mike was quickly recognized as the ‘go-to’ person for all things related to cutting, breakout, grinding and painting.  Since the beginning, Mike has been loyal and dedicated not only to the team in Auburn, Indiana, but to the entire Carlex family.

He rises to every challenge and is quick to lend a helping hand, both internally and externally.  Mike has mentored every one of our cutting/painting operators, no matter which shift or time of day.  With everything that Mike does, our employees’ safety is the top priority.  Teamwork and excellence are never optional, these are the rules by which he performs.

Mike is the definition of a servant leader; he puts people first, he is a skilled communicator, a compassionate collaborator, a system thinker and maintains moral authority – Mike leads by serving others.
