Peter Brown, owner of Tiny & Sons Auto Glass in North Pembroke, Mass., has been elected as a new member of the board of directors of the Auto Glass Safety Council.
“I started in this business with my father in 1971 or 1972 and worked for him in high school,” Brown says. “I officially joined his business in 1978. I love this industry because of the technology and the way installations just keep changing. I enjoy keeping up with this and find it interesting and refreshing.”
Brown says he learned early the importance of keeping customers vehicles’ serviced with proper installation techniques that ensure quality and safety.
“My first certification was through Carlite years ago. I learned it’s important to make sure customers are properly taken care of. We [my company] were involved with the AGRSS Standard™ when it started,” Brown says.
His big focus for 2014 is on education and is serving on the AGSC education committee. He is working with other committee members to update the AGSC Automotive Glass Technician Certification test.
“We want to get the questions even more current,” Brown explains. “We’re working to revise the test.”
