Mr Windscreen network goes global

Mr Windscreen has long been part of the ever-growing Automotive Glass Europe® network, enabling its customers in Ireland to avail of windscreen services seamlessly in 20 European countries. The network has now gone global, recently creating a partnership with colleagues in Canada and South Africa.
 
The network is an alliance of leading providers of automotive glass repair and replacement services. The group was founded over a decade ago and is operating in 1,500 locations across 20 different European countries. The recent global expansion is AGE’s proactive response to the growing demand of insurance and leasing companies and fleet managers.
 
Pim de Ridder, managing director of Automotive Glass Europe® commented on the new partnerships:
 
“The key reason for creating our alliance over a decade ago was to provide our Partners from different European countries with an international dimension whenever necessary. 11 years on, we have seen that this initiative is appreciated by their customers. However, the ongoing, wider globalization tells us that European cooperation is no longer sufficient; our customers now require much more than just that. We have found that the colleagues of both North America’s Clairus Group and Southern Africa’s Autoboys have the same vision on our industry”.
 
Although Uniban and Autoboys will not share jobs with other countries, like AGE’s European Partners do, the partnerships have been formed to help share best practice between different continents and to be able to provide support to insurance, leasing and fleet companies who are operating across multiple continents.
 
Gerry Fitzgibbon, MD of Mr Windscreen commented: “For Mr Windscreen, the AGE network is about more than extending our footprint across Europe and now globally. It is about sharing market and technical knowledge and ensuring we are constantly future-proofing our business in the face of many worldwide technological developments.“ Read More
