Chris Gliemann

Owner, Operator, Fabricator, Electronics Specialist

After accumulating over 20 years of experience working at renowned shops globally, Chris made the decision to transition from being an employee to becoming an owner/operator.  He had gained a reputation as the go-to person for clients, who would only leave their cars when he was present at the shop.  Wherever Chris went, his customer base continued to grow, following him like the pied piper.  In 2019, Chris established Epic Wurx, specializing in Radar & Laser Countermeasures, custom mobile electronics, lighting, audio, and custom interior/exterior fabrication.  During his time at Epic Wurx, Chris exclusively catered to a private client list, relying soley on word-of-mouth referrals without any advertising.  With his extensive experience, exceptional skills, and unwavering determination, Chris laid the perfect groundwork to establish Vanguard Automotive Design.  Vanguard focuses on seamlessly integrating various installations with your vehicle, excelling not only in car audio but also in Radar & Laser countermeasures, Xpel-PPF, window tinting, ceramic coating, marine audio upgrades, and upholstery.  Our team at Vanguard is capable of turning your dreams into reality.  We invite you to visit us and discover what sets us apart, and of course, become a part of the Vanguard family.
