Calibration Service Launched by Pilkington

NSG Group’s Pilkington North America Aftermarket Glass Replacement business unit recently announced the launch of The Calibration People™. It’s a new service that is designed to provide additional access to remote and local calibration and for auto glass installers.

“As the percentage of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)-equipped vehicles continues to expand in line with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requirements, NSG Group has continually developed creative solutions for supporting the aftermarket auto-glass industry’s demand for windshield camera calibrations,” a portion of the company’s release reads.

According to the company, The Calibration People will increase the availability of calibration options to installers across the United States, beginning with locations in Albuquerque, N.M. and Mobile, Ala. The Calibration People’s first service location will provide a customer service experience from a variety of angles including static, dynamic and dual calibrations, as well as supplying other glass installation related accessories and supplies, the company noted.

“This innovative addition to Pilkington’s current calibration offering allows us to bring ADAS calibration to all the fully mobile installers across North America, while further supporting the brick and mortar customers’ remote calibration requirements,” said Bill George, business planning director. “We will continue to support the aftermarket installation channel during this time of unprecedented calibration demand.”

The Calibration People™ service was made available to all installers beginning in October 2020. Both locations will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    This is just great! Pilkington rewards the early adopters of their tool who spent big bucks to get started when most were skeptical by now competing with them. It puts a bad taste in my mouth and makes me want to jump to another brand of ADAS tooling rather than continuing to support Pilkington.
