Nielsen & Moller Auto Glass International (NMAGI) has assembled a new professional team and is re-entering the U.S. market. The company says it’s the right time to fill the void due to the industry-wide issue of supply chain challenges. But it’s also because they now have the right people.
NMAGI has partnered with Paul Anaya as the director of North America at its Nielsen & Moller Auto-Glass, USA LLC. Anaya will work with director Dane Moller in the venture. Moller has served as director of the international brand since 2006. He is part of the company’s fourth-generation and grew up in the business. Anaya and the Moller family have a long-standing business relationship as they worked together when Anaya served as vice president of sales and marketing for Mygrant Glass, where he worked for 34 years.
Nielsen & Moller supplies auto glass to distributors and large retailers, and installers with the ability to purchase containers.
“We are supplying distributors with Nielsen & Moller branded glass,” says Moller. “We have relationships with quality global factories, and we really promote the logo, the brand and go above and beyond with customer service.”
Nielsen & Moller held a presence in the U.S. in the eighties and nineties. This is its reintroduction into the U.S.
“For me, it’s a privilege to be a part of this,” Anaya says. “What really spurred the idea was the supply chain challenges, so we are looking to fill some gaps. Between the two of us, we have a lot of relationships in this industry, and we bring a lot of value and great service.”
“We’re excited to come back to the U.S. and leverage Paul’s experience, which will benefit all of us. There is so much potential,” Moller adds.
While word quietly spreads throughout the industry, Anaya says he received several phone calls from companies looking for something exciting and unique.
“A lot of these customers have been through so much, including acquisitions,” he says. “We have been very well received and are extremely grateful. Customers are happy to have another choice and know we bring great value.”
That value includes products that include ADAS parts as this segment continues to grow.
“We have the technology and testing capabilities to ensure our customers will have a successful installation and calibration,” Anaya says.
His role at Nielsen & Moller isn’t his only new venture. He also launched Winners Edge Coaching and Consulting, Inc., where he will consult with other businesses, including glass companies that need consulting and business advice.
“This allows me to leverage all of my experience and bring it all together, which will be beneficial to my role at Nielsen & Moller as well,” he adds.
