Mark Weeks, regional vice president for Fix Network Atlantic is pleased to welcome Novus Glass Bridgewater to the network.
Owner Glenn Toope has been in the automotive aftermarket industry for 35 years as an entrepreneur and educator. He knew from an early age that he wanted to fix cars. He felt there was a need for a facility in the community that offered the highest standards of auto repair and an inviting atmosphere for all customers.
He started Bridgewater Auto Repair in 2019, providing bumper to bumper service, diagnostics, maintenance and repairs on all type of passenger vehicles in the Lunenburg-Queen counties. With the addition of Novus Glass, the Bridgewater team now offers windshield repair and replacement along with the best alignment services from Halifax to Yarmouth.
“We chose Novus Glass because it’s the best in the business, leading the way in glass repair and replacement technology,” says Toope. “We need competition in the glass industry in the community. This opportunity will enable us to grow in the region and offer our experienced staff a chance to work with leading-edge windshield repair technology.”
Locally owned and operated, the Bridgewater facility has been through a massive renovation these past two to three years. The location has two experienced glass service technicians, Mike Uhlman and Jeff Rosevear, who bring 50 years of combined experience in the glass industry. In addition to onsite services, Novus Glass Bridgewater also has a mobile van unit which provides added convenience for customers as the expert technicians come to them.
“We pride ourselves on offering a positive customer experience and setting the best standards in the industry. This ensures that we have repeat customers and new customers through recommendations and word of mouth,” says Toope.
Across the provincial border in Quebec, Yves Roy, regional vice president for Fix Network in Quebec, has welcomed Novus Glass Quebec/Armand-Paris to the network.
The location, which is owned by the Tondreau Group, also offers body shop services in the same facility under the ProColor Collision brand. With the addition of Novus Glass, the group now offers onsite windshield repair and replacement services as well as throughout its territory with the use of a mobile unit. This is the very first ProColor franchise in Canada to add the Novus Glass banner.
“We’re pleased to offer customized services that meet our customer’s needs,” says Jean-Daniel Houde, Managing Director of the Tondreau Group. “Our mobile service is a convenient option for busy clients that do not have the time to go to a shop to get their windshield repaired.”
The Novus Glass Quebec/Armand-Paris team has experience in all aspects of the automotive aftermarket industry. The group’s automotive technicians have over 25 years experience in auto glass and mechanical repair services. Meanwhile, Houde has been in the auto glass industry for five years, having worked on remote starters and the installation of tint film.
