AP Technoglass Windshields to Be Manufactured by Safelite

AGC Automotive Americas has entered into a license agreement with Safelite Glass Corp., allowing Safelite to manufacture, distribute and sell replacement windshields under the AP Technoglass brand. AGC will continue its production of AP Technoglass as well. 

“We’re confident that Safelite will continue to ensure that OEM-quality standards are met with their production of AP Technoglass and we are pleased that more customers will have access to this level of quality parts,” says Alain Crouzillas, president of AGC Global ARG.

“Safelite’s Enfield plant earned the trust of AGC after a close partnership with the shared goal of broadening the distribution of AP Technoglass branded windshields, increasing brand recognition and ensuring customers’ access to OEM-quality replacement glass,” according to officials.

    XYG already makes a good share of APTech glass, why not let Safelite do just as bad of a job!

    This is just another effort of Safelite to monopolize the auto glass industries. This is an issue that needs to be investigated on the Federal level.

      Safelite monopolizes the market because you let them! They offered what many considered to be a sub par replacement parts for years, but installers went after the lower price. Safelite was known forever to sell to installers that wouldn’t qualify to purchase at other higher end suppliers, but instead of promoting your shops as having a higher quality of parts and service thus justifying a slightly higher price, most retailers “chased” the cheap installers in an effort to “compete”. Most AG installers are doing today, just what they complain of their potential customers of doing. Going for the cheapest price in place of quality.
