NordGlass Signs On as Platinum Sponsor of Auto Glass Week™
April 11, 2013

NordGlass's Steve Skorupa says his company signed on as the Platinum Sponsor of Auto Glass Week ™ because he sees the importance of an industry event that allows auto glass professionals to come together to network and learn more about new suppliers and products. The NordGlass Auto Glass Technician Olympics are a part of this year's event, which will be held September 18-20 at the Tampa Convention Center.

"NordGlass wants to show the automotive windshield replacement market in North America that we are excited about providing OEM quality products and service to its customers long into the future," says Skorupa, director of sales and distribution, USA, for NordGlass.

"We want to keep introducing the NordGlass brand to be recognized as a high quality manufacturer and supplier that our customers can rely on," he adds.

NordGlass was founded in 1991 and has two plants within Poland. Construction on its production factory in Koszalin began in 1996 and finished in 2000. The other plant, located in Slupsk, was constructed in 2006.

The company produces glass panes for more than 1,200 of the most popular types of vehicles in Europe.

Skorupa believes Auto Glass Week™ is important because it is "a great venue for new and current suppliers to show off new products and services. Auto Glass Week™ brings the industry together, allowing for networking, relationship building and the introduction of new suppliers and products.

"We are all very busy throughout the year and Auto Glass Week™ allows for the industry to come together to build their business and have some fun," he adds.

Officials from the company will share a display of products and manufacturing technologies at booth 200 during the event.
"We will have representatives from Europe in our booth stressing our commitment to the North American market. We will also have technicians competing in the NordGlass Auto Glass Technician Olympics," Skorupa says.

Now in its eighth year, the NordGlass Auto Glass Technician Olympics provides the opportunity for technicians from around the world to compete to properly replace a windshield. Industry veterans judge the competitors' replacements as well as their procedures, safety, cleanliness and customer interaction.

It is also a chance to learn from other professionals, execute safe, quality installations, pick up innovative techniques and, of course, compete for the chance to hold the title of "World's Best Auto Glass Technician."

The first-place winner will receive $10,000, a gold medal and trophy, as well as bragging rights as the "World's Best Auto Glass Technician." Second place will receive $1,000 as well as a silver medal, and third place will receive $500 and a bronze medal.
