Cindy Rowe Auto Glass was founded in 1980 as C. Rowe’s Windshield Repair by its namesake, Cindy Rowe-Taylor. Rowe, who was and remains a registered nurse, had decided she wanted to go into business for herself and began performing repairs out of her Chevrolet Vega. In 1987, she purchased an existing auto glass replacement business in Harrisburg, Pa., and integrated it into her existing windshield repair business. Today, the business has 12 locations scattered throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Rowe’s husband, David Taylor, who today serves as chief operating officer of the company, joined the business in 1986, and is a founder and past president of the National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA). He serves on the NWRA Board of Directors.
