Cindy Rowe Sale to Belron US Closes

The sale of Cindy Rowe Auto Glass to Belron US closed today, according to Belron US spokesperson Jenny Cain.

"The deal has been completed and Belron US has acquired substantially all the assets of Cindy Rowe Auto Glass," Cain told glassBYTEs.com™/AGRR magazine.

The terms of the sale were not disclosed, and Cain says further details will be available next week, once the company has an opportunity to meet with associates in the Harrisburg market.

Belron US had announced in August that it had signed a letter of intent to purchase substantially all of the assets of the Harrisburg, Pa.-based chain, and since August, the company has maintained that the deal was expected to close by end of year.

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, 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).
