Glass Technology's Wanstrath Trains Malaysian Body Shops in Windshield Repair

Durango, Colo.-based Glass Technology's president, Kerry Wanstrath, recently spent 10 days in Malaysia teaching technicians about windshield repair. The company says it has a new distributor that distributes to most of Malaysia's 300 body shops.

"This is all new to this part of the world," says Wanstrath. "They are where we were 25 years ago."
Wanstrath trained more than 30 body shops during his 10-day stay and says repair is becoming popular already in the country due to the reduced costs for insurance companies.

Likewise, Wanstrath says insurance companies in Malaysia saw an environmental benefit to repair as well.

"Interesting enough is the fact that despite repair just being introduced to [insurance companies], they already recognized the environmental benefits repair brings to their country. Now who's 25 years behind?" says Wanstrath.
