Automotive glass repair and replacement provider Auto Windscreens has announced its acquisition of AA AutoWindshields, the AA’s automotive glazing business.
The deal will see AA AutoWindshields’ Preston offices and its 200 staff and technicians integrated with Auto Windscreens and, under a 10-year partnership arrangement, the AA will continue to use Auto Windscreens to deliver glass repair and replacement services for AA members; its business-to-business and insurance customers.
Chris Thornton, managing director of Auto Windscreens, said: “There are clear synergies for the two businesses.
“We place customer satisfaction at the heart of our business, reflecting the AA’s own customer ethos.
“This marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for Auto Windscreens and further reinforces our position as a leader in the industry.
“Through a continuing collaboration with the AA we will provide a full windscreen repair and replacement service to their customers and insurance policyholders.”
Auto Windscreens is owned by Trifords, part of the Markerstudy group of companies. It serves customers throughout the UK and across all sectors from managed fleet to insurance.
The company head office and dedicated contact centre is based in Chesterfield.
