Herrera Expects Mitchell Merger to Bring Limited Changes (If Any) to NAGS

Mitchell International, the parent company of National Auto Glass Specifications International (NAGS), announced the signing of a definitive agreement under which they will combine in a merger-of-equals transaction valued at $1.4 billion this afternoon. Jesse Herrera, senior vice president of product management and marketing, told™/AGRR magazine that few, if any, changes are expected for the NAGS business.

"With respect to NAGS and how it might be affected, the reality is we expect that there will be relatively limited changes, if any, to the NAGS business," Herrera said.

Herrera noted that CCC does not have any glass program in place currently-allowing this business to remain as is.

"It is not an area of overlap to our two companies. It is a unique business to Mitchell," he said. "It is more of a complementary product line for the two companies than an area of concern."

He added, "Overtime we expect [the merger] to be a good thing."
