Safelite Buys the Assets of Lee & Cates Auto Glass

The auto glass division of the 94-year old Lee & Cates Glass has been sold to Safelite Auto Glass. The third generation family-owned business is based in Jacksonville, Fla., and has ten locations.

Safelite has purchased the auto glass portion of the business only; commercial and residential work will remain with Lee & Cates. According to AGRR’s Top Retailers list, published in March 2020, Lee & Cates had auto glass sales of between $5 and $10 million.
“It’s a good fit for us,” said Safelite CEO Tom Feeney. “Jacksonville is a fast-growing area and this gives us an even stronger presence there.”
