Laval, Quebec — August 16, 2017 — Hot on the heels of the acquisition of Go! Glass & Accessories just three months prior, Uniban Canada has announced the acquisition of Star Auto Glass’ trademark and franchising rights. Star Auto Glass specializes in windshield repair and replacement.
Uniban Canada is the franchisor for the brands VitroPlus, UniglassPlus, Go! Glass & Accessories and Ziebart in Canada. A statement from the company says it has been strengthening its position in the Canadian market, particularly in the Greater Toronto Area, by adding six service points.
“This acquisition is a continuation of a strategic deployment for Uniban Canada. Star Auto Glass is an important player in the Greater Toronto Area. With an impressive number of mobile units and commercial business volume, the largest in Ontario, we will increase our presence in the region,” said Marc Desmarais, President and CEO of Uniban Canada. “This transaction was part of our strategic pursuit in enhancing our coverage of service centres to solidify our vertical integration strategy.”
Through this transaction, Uniban Canada is expanding its network to more than 150 stores and 300 mobile units.
“I am very enthusiastic about this transaction, which consolidates a longstanding relationship between our two companies. The equity of confidence and trust that has been built between us is a determining factor in my choice for the future direction of the Star Auto Glass banner. This transaction provides us with new tools to expand our presence and influence in the Greater Toronto Area and to support my project to open new locations,” said Bassam Betou, founder of Star Auto Glass.
