Schwarze Industries is pleased to announce the arrival of Brian Giles as Product Manager, beginning Monday, January 6. Brian Giles previously worked at Elgin Sweepers for over 15 years where he was Product Manager as well as other product and marketing roles.

Brian Giles

Brian has a broad background in mechanical sweepers, industrial equipment markets and government bid markets and is a graduate of Northern Illinois University. Giles will report to Greg Heyer, Vice President of Sales, Marketing, Customer Service & Product Management and Brian and his family will be relocating to the Huntsville, AL area in the near future.

"We welcome Brian and know he will be a great asset to the team with his broad knowledge and experience in the sweeping industry," said Greg.

Editors Note: Giles first became known personally to me when I was the editor of American Sweeper magazine over a decade ago. That's when I covered the Junkyard Wars television segment that pitted two teams of sweeper builders, headed up by Giles of Elgin and Jim Adair of Schwarze, that each built sweepers from junkyard components. If you want to revisit one of the more interesting and off-beat events in the annals of sweeping, we suggest you take a look at our online archive coverage of the event from that time. Interestingly, Adair and Giles will now be on the same team of sweeper builders.
