MBJ Associates, Inc. will serve as a Cobalt Sponsor of Auto Glass Week™ 2015 this fall in Reno, Nev. The three-day international event featuring automotive glass repair and replacement competitions, educational seminars and an exhibition floor, is proud to once again welcome MBJ Associates, Inc., a technical advisor, training and marketing consulting firm for the AGRR industry.
“MBJ Associates, Inc. was founded in 1997 as a technical advisor, training and marketing consulting firm. Its principal, Mark Daniels has over 40 years of auto glass experience including installation, company ownership and community education and training. Mark has served on numerous auto glass industry committees, was past president of the New Hampshire Glass Dealers’ Association and last year received the prestigious Volunteer of the Year Award from the US FIRST Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to inspiring students to discover and celebrate the impact and importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM),” says Mark Daniels, president.
When asked why an event like Auto Glass Week is important to the automotive glass industry, Daniels, explains that “this is a unique event to learn about new techniques and products. It offers the ability to exchange ideas to further the overall industry and its members.”
The company decided to sponsor Auto Glass Week because “MBJ Associates, Inc. represents leading auto glass industry organizations providing technical advice, training and marketing services. Auto Glass Week draw participants from around the world providing a unique opportunity to present the company’s various product lines, generate sales and build and maintain a network with many customers in a single forum.”
MBJ Associates, Inc. will be at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, September 30-October 2, displaying the “Solo Neo Windshield Setting System, which allows a single auto glass technician to handle windshield installations that normally require two technicians, resulting in greater efficiency, productivity and fewer work-related injuries,” says Daniels. “We will also offer the AEGIS GlassHandler Kit, which is a patented, ergonomically-designed kit that gives auto glass technicians greater control removing and setting windshields, resulting in better installations and fewer injuries.”
Also on the display will be the “Adjust-A-Lite Setting Tool Kit, which is a versatile, multi-functional toolkit for setting windshields. It has a flexible design that allows for a variety of application methods to suit the installation and individual style of each technician,” according to Daniels. “AEGIS Quicksilver Technology Windshield Repair Kits will also be on hand, as well as AEGIS Single Shot Repair Kits.”
The company will also offer attendees a look at UltraWiz Tools.
“We will have the several blades featured, such as the Ultra Thin Radius Serrated Blade, which has the least cutting resistance due to the new radius grind, distinctive center rib for extra strength at the bend and a unique serration design,” says Daniels. “Ultra Thin Paint Protection Reverse Blade Bend will also be available. Its nylon coating protects exposed paint from accidental blade contact. It is ideal for exposed glass with underside moulding or encapsulation which allows technicians to cut away from glass or moulding. MBJ Associates, Inc. will also display UltraWiz Lever Knives.”
Mark your calendars now to visit with MBJ Associates, Inc. on the exhibition floor, as well as all the Sponsors at this year’s event. Registration for Auto Glass Week 2015 is open and pre-registration discounts end September 8.
