Equalizer Store Hits 100 Locations, Looking for 200 by End of Year

Equalizer Industries has been heavily promoting its Equalizer Store concept during the past year, and the effort has paid off nicely, reports Gilbert Gutierrez, product sales director and senior technical advisor for the Round Rock, Texas-based company.

"We're in 105 locations and going strong," he told glassBYTEs. "We're as far north as Minnesota and we're lack a presence in only five states."

He reports that Texas has the most number of displays, at 25, with California and Florida right behind. Five units are located in Atlanta, the most for any one city.

"We expect to expand another 50 to 60 units before the end of the year," he adds. "That will bring us close to 200. Most of those will be in the most populous states."

According to Gutierrez, "PPG, Pilkington, ACI and all the independent distributors are looking to take it."

The Equalizer Store is a one-stop shopping display that stocks over 100 of the most popular tools the company supplies. The display is designed to be set up in a distributor's warehouse, showroom or will-call center.

Equalizer has teamed up with auto glass suppliers across the country in this effort to handle auto glass removal and replacement needs of installers.
