Safelite Autoglass is notifying employees and key customers today that it intends to end its wholesale operation, Service Auto Glass, this week. Safelite Group will officially sunset the Service Auto Glass brand and the wholesale side of its business on Tuesday, January 5, 2021.
“I am extremely proud of the role our wholesale business played in our company’s history. This decision is intended to allow us to fully focus our energies and resources on our core business,” said Tom Feeney, president and CEO of the Safelite Group. The warehouses are expected to remain open and to be used for internal distribution.
Safelite’s wholesale division has faced challenges over the years—most notably selling to a client base with which it often competes. “Moving forward, our wholesale customers will still have access to parts through the same suppliers we use. We will begin actively notifying these customers today,” said Feeney.
