After announcing the acquisition of Go! Glass & Accessories just 3 months ago, Uniban Canada, a leader in the automotive glass industry, is continuing their growth with the acquisition of Star Auto Glass Trademark and franchising rights, a banner that specializes in windshield repair and replacement.
Uniban Canada, franchisor for the brands VitroPlus, UniglassPlus, Go! Glass & Accessories and Ziebart in Canada, is strengthening their position in the Canadian market, particularly in the Greater Toronto Area, by adding 6 reputable and well-established service points within their respective markets.
Star Auto Glass has built its reputation on excellent customer service and superior quality products. These values are in line with those of Uniban Canada, a company that puts the customer at the center of its concerns.
“This acquisition is a continuation of a strategic deployment for Uniban Canada. Star Auto Glass is an important player in the greater Toronto area. With an impressive number of mobile units and commercial business volume, the largest in Ontario, we will increase our presence in the region,” said Marc Desmarais, President and CEO, Uniban Canada, and COO of the PH Group. “This transaction was part of our strategic pursuit in enhancing our coverage of service centres to solidify our vertical integration strategy.”
“I am very enthusiastic about this transaction, which consolidates a longstanding relationship between our two companies. The equity of confidence and trust that has been built between us is a determining factor in my choice for the future direction of the Star Auto Glass banner. This transaction provides us with new tools to expand our presence and influence in the Greater Toronto Area and to support my project to open new locations,” said Bassam Betou, founder of Star Auto Glass.
Through this transaction, Uniban is expanding its network to more than 150 stores and 300 mobile units.
