June 28, 2013

Auto Glass Week™, the three-day international event featuring auto glass repair and replacement competitions, educational seminars and an exhibition/extravaganza, is proud to announce that SRP®, a company that offers a wide variety of auto glass repair and replacement products, is sponsoring the event at the Cobalt level.

"SRP, as a member of the Skidmore Group family, has over 50 years' experience in the auto glass repair industry with over 2,000 corporate, franchise and affiliate units in 43 countries. With the Skidmore Group team behind it, the SRP brand can provide you something other companies simply cannot-products designed specifically For installers, By installers™," said David Osland, vice president of marketing and sales for SRP.

"The Skidmore Group was founded as a family-owned business in New Westminster, B.C., Canada, under the name A & H Sales in 1946. Today, the company is still owned by the Skidmore family and is headquartered in the Vancouver, B.C. area. During the past six-plus decades, we have installed auto replacement glass in all regions of the world and in all weather conditions. We have seen the industry as it has changed from rubber gaskets to polysulfide to butyl tape to polyurethane. This unique arrangement and history ensures our ability to provide you with the highest-quality, shop tested, and installer approved Auto Glass Replacement products possible in the auto glass repair industry," said Osland.

As a Cobalt Sponsor of Auto Glass Week™, SRP will be featured on the show floor September 18-20. "Aside from our full line of auto glass adhesives, primer and cleaning products we will be featuring additional sources of revenue for glass shops like headlamp restoration and windshield repair," said Osland.

SRP chose to sponsor Auto Glass Week™ 2013 for many beneficial reasons, one being the competitions. "We've always felt it is important to support the industry in whatever way we can. Quite frankly, we enjoy being in the middle of the action and there is no better action in the industry as the repair and replacement Olympics. There is just something about being around people whom are proud of their craft and willing to show it off that is exciting," said Osland.

"Every industry needs a singular place to meet, interact, exchange ideas and bond as a whole. For years we were a little bi-polar with two main shows and a bunch of smaller conferences. Now, with one show encompassing all things auto glass, everyone can concentrate and bring their energy to one place," Osland added.

Auto Glass Week draws more than 1,000 attendees and features top industry players on the show floor each year. The event will be held in Tampa, Fla., at the Tampa Convention Center and the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina, September 18-20.

Osland offers his support for technicians at this year's competitions, "What you will be doing on the show floor during competition is what you do every day, just with less people watching. Relax, take a deep breath and enjoy the event knowing you are in the top of your field."
