Chicago-based Glass America has completed a transaction to acquire auto glass repair and replacement retailer, Precision Auto Glass in western New York. Precision Auto Glass has been serving the Buffalo, New York area for many years and serves as a competitor for area locations of Glass America.

“This transaction broadens Glass America’s market share in western New York and brings the company immediate additional growth and other interesting opportunities,” says Mike Barry, CEO of Glass America.

As part of the transaction Glass America will obtain Precision Auto Glass’ customer list.

“The owner of Precision Auto Glass was willing to combine our customers with his and wanted to move on from the auto glass business,” says Scott Wills, chief financial officer for Glass America. “We have operations in the western New York market as well and we considered Precision Auto Glass a competitor of ours so we are very happy with the acquisition and with the sizable customer list that we have obtained.”

“Customers of Precision Auto Glass will enjoy the full arsenal of benefits and quality workmanship that all Glass America customers receive,” says Alan Resnick, vice president of Glass America. “They can expect quick, prompt service, the fit of original-equipment glass, AGRSS certified technicians and one hour safe drive away time.”
