GlasWeld, an industry leader in windshield repair, glass scratch removal and other glass restoration solutions, is proud to announce its sponsorship of Auto Glass Week™ at the Platinum level once again. The three-day international event features automotive glass repair and replacement competitions, educational seminars and an exhibition/extravaganza where sponsoring companies will be seen.
“Auto Glass Week is the premier meeting place for our industry and attended by those members that share our belief in uncompromising quality both in products and customer service,” said Dennis Garbutt, general manager of GlasWeld.
As a returning Platinum Sponsor of Auto Glass Week, GlasWeld will be featured on the show floor October 7-9 and is honored once again to present the GlasWeld Windshield Repair Olympics competition dedicated to Walt Gorman. Technicians from all over the world will showcase their skills and compete for a grand prize of $10,000. As for the competing technicians, Garbutt offers some words of advice: “Practice, practice, practice! There are many quality contestants out there all wanting to demonstrate their skills and win the first prize as World Champion!”
The annual event, managed by AGRR™ magazine and co-sponsored by the magazine, and the Auto Glass Safety Council, Independent Glass Association, National Glass Association and National Windshield Repair Association, draws a global attendee base and features top industry players on the show floor each year. Auto Glass Week will be held in Baltimore at the Baltimore Convention Center and Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel.
When asked why an event like Auto Glass Week is important to the automotive glass industry, Garbutt explained that “Auto Glass Week has become the industry forum for sharing new ideas and concepts, developing meaningful relationships with fellow industry members and, through the various competitions, allowing technicians to apply their skills and gather new ones from observing the techniques of other contestants.”
At this year’s event, “GlasWeld will continue to refine existing products and supplies, introduce innovative new products and profit opportunities and expand our professional training and development programs,” Garbutt stated.
