DNS Auto Glass Shop Shares PGW Distribution Address in Minnesota and Kentucky, According to State Records
May 12, 2011

DNS Auto Glass Shop, which reportedly has ties to Coast to Coast Auto Glass, shares its address with Pittsburgh Glass Works (PGW) distribution facilities in at least two states, according to state records filed in Minnesota and Kentucky.

In Minnesota, DNS lists its registered office at 316 W. 86th Street, Bloomington, Minn., 55420, and PGW's website lists a PGW Auto Glass location at the same address. The Minnesota paperwork is dated February 14, 2011.

In Kentucky, DNS lists the street address of its registered office at 3326 Gilmore Industrial Blvd., Louisville, Ky., 40213, in its official state record-which also matches PGW's Louisville distribution facility. The Kentucky DNS paperwork is dated January 19, 2011.

glassBYTEs.com™/AGRR™ magazine has received unconfirmed reports from readers that in some cases DNS associates are based in PGW facilities.

DNS Auto Glass Shop also operates in South Carolina, and has listed Jeff Searles-whom the DNS website lists as founder of the company-as its registered agent at 40 Airport Road, Greenville, S.C., 29607. PGW's Greenville facility is located at 410 Airport Road in the same town, less than half a mile away, according to the PGW website. The South Carolina paperwork includes a date of February 21, 2011.

In DNS's Florida filing, the company lists its principle place of business at 2120 East Raymond, Ste. 30, Phoenix, Fla.; while this appears to be the company's Arizona address with a change of state, a representative in the state's records office advised that this likely was a simple typo, and that only the company's registered agent must have a Florida address. The company has listed CT Corporation System in Plantation, Fla., in its Florida paperwork, filed March 16, 2011.

PGW spokesperson Robert McCullough advised glassBYTEs.com/AGRR magazine late Tuesday that he would look into the address similarities, but has not responded to follow-up requests for comment.

At press time, DNS Auto Glass spokesperson Rhonda Jacobson, who also represents both Coast to Coast Auto Glass and the Auto Glass Shop as spokesperson, had not responded to requests for comment.
