Schluter-Systems' Horton Retires, DeGooyer Promoted
Plattsburgh, NY, March 23, 2018-Schluter-Systems North America has announced the retirement of Larry Horton, after a 34-year career in the tile industry. Dee DeGooyer has been promoted to replace Horton in the role of senior vice president of sales for the United States.
