Automotive Glass Europe goes global

Automotive Glass Europe has announced that it has now gone global, as it has recently created a partnership with colleagues from two other continents.

Automotive Glass Europe is an alliance of leading providers of automotive glass repair and replacement services. The group was founded over a decade ago, and is operating in 1,500 locations across 20 different European countries. The recent global expansion is AGE’s proactive response to the growing demand of insurance and leasing companies and fleet managers.

Pim de Ridder, (centre on the photo) managing director of Automotive Glass Europe comments on the new partnerships: “The key reason for creating our alliance over a decade ago was to provide our Partners from different European countries with an international dimension whenever necessary. 11 years on, we have seen that this initiative is appreciated by their customers. However, the ongoing, wider globalization tells us that European cooperation is no longer sufficient; our customers now require much more than just that.”

The  partnerships have been formed to help share best practice between different continents and to be able to provide support to insurance, leasing and fleet companies who are operating across multiple continents.
