Safelite Group, the owner of Safelite AutoGlass, has acquired the auto glass assets of Mark’s Mobile Glass, a company that operates five locations throughout Missouri. The transaction was completed on Friday, March 3, 2023, and marks Safelite’s first major acquisition of 2023.
Safelite AutoGlass, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, is the largest auto glass repair and replacement business in the U.S. Last year, Safelite acquired the auto glass assets of Reliable Glass headquartered in Phoenix, Ariz., Seattle’s Genuine Auto Glass and the auto glass assets of Binswanger’s Auto Glass Division in October 2022. Pro Tech Auto Glass, a retail chain serving western Pennsylvania, southern New York and eastern Ohio, was acquired at the end of August 2022, Henderson Glass in July 2022 and Frontier Glass in June 2022.
“We enjoy welcoming new team members to our business and leveraging their talents in providing the quality glass repair, replacement and recalibration services our customers expect from Safelite,” says Renee Cacchillo, president and CEO of Safelite Group. “We’re confident that our new associates from Mark’s Mobile Glass will contribute to our future success and are glad to have them join our team.”
Mark’s Mobile Glass will leverage Safelite’s operational systems, safety system recalibration “expertise,” distribution network, global purchasing power, and insurance and commercial relationships. The combined businesses will offer vehicle glass repair, replacement and recalibration services to customers in Missouri.
“It’s an exciting time in our business as we continue to expand our reach, and with that comes the responsibility of caring for our people,” says Cacchillo. “We look forward to making our new team members feel right at home.”
