Glazex Serves as Sapphire Sponsor for WRO

Glazex will serve as a sapphire sponsor for the Third Annual Walt Gorman Memorial Windshield Repair Olympics (WRO). This year's WRO will be held in Las Vegas November 6, 2008, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. The event is co-sponsored by the National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA) and AGRR magazine and is held alongside the International Auto Body Congress and Expo (NACE).

"[We chose to sponsor] because any organization that promotes windshield repair, promotes quality, and also promotes guidelines for the industry to follow as a whole is something that we proudly want to be part of," says Glazex owner John Steiner. "The windshield repair industry in my eyes has gone unchecked far too long … "

The competition serves as a venue for repair technicians to showcase and learn from one another. The WRO is open to all and features technicians from all over the world.

The first-place winner of the WRO will receive a cash prize of $1,000, a gold medal and trophy as well as bragging rights as "World's Best Repair Technician." Second place will receive $500 as well as a silver medal and third will receive $250 and a bronze medal.
