Safelite Group has formed an agreement to acquire Auto Glass Specialists of Colorado. The transaction was completed at the close of business August 30, 2019.
Auto Glass Specialists has been in business for 16 years, owned and managed by Austin
Cavender since 2006. Auto Glass Specialists earned a reputation through diligence and hard work by its dedicated staff, according to the company. The single store location in Glenwood Springs, Colo., will expand Safelite’s brick-and-mortar footprint in the area, with the nearest Safelite location over 85 miles away.
“This acquisition helps expand our customer reach in Colorado while leveraging the strengths of both companies,” says Tom Feeney, president and CEO of Safelite Group. “Austin instilled a commitment to customer service that nicely aligns with Safelite and our company’s purpose.
We’re very excited to welcome his team to Safelite and look forward to a bright future.”
Auto Glass Specialists will leverage Safelite’s operational systems, vehicle safety system expertise (ADAS), distribution network, global purchasing power, strong insurance and commercial relationships, according to the company.
