Belron® and AGC sign a franchise agreement for vehicle glass repair and replacement networks in Poland and Czech Republic

, AGC Glass Europe

Belron, the world’s leading vehicle glass repair and replacement (VGRR) group, and AGC Automotive Europe, the European division of the world’s leading automotive glass producer, have signed a franchise agreement covering the AGC VGRR operations in Poland and Czech Republic.

AGC currently operates 37 VGRR locations in Poland under the NordGlass brand and 19 locations in the Czech Republic under the AG Experts brand. Under this agreement these networks will operate under Belron brands. Michel Spina, General Manager ARG Europe, commented: “This partnership will allow us to serve more customers with the excellent service standards that Belron is recognised for and provide our employees with the support and coaching that Belron can offer.” 

Nigel Doggett, Regional General Manager at Belron, added: “The Polish and Czech markets have a combined vehicle park of over 20 million vehicles and are relatively mature. This agreement allows us to benefit from the extensive AGC network and make a difference to motorists across these two markets by offering the Belron service with real care.” The franchise agreement is effective from 1 June 2019. It is the first agreement made by Belron with a glass manufacturer to operate VGRR services.

As well as its VGRR networks, AGC Automotive Europe has major operations in the production and distribution of automotive replacement glass in Poland, the Czech Republic and throughout Europe. These operations are not impacted by the franchise agreement that has been established exclusively for the AGC VGRR operations in both countries.
