BLAINVILLE (Quebec), 26 August 2021: NOVUS Glass, the leading automotive glass repair and replacement brand in the world, has reinforced its presence in Canada with the opening of a key strategic location, this time in Quebec’s St-Hyacinthe region.
NOVUS Glass St -Hyacinthe is another milestone in the rich aftermarket legacy of entrepreneur Real Arcand, who has been associated with Fix Network since 2011 and successfully operates six major Fix Auto facilities – all in Quebec. The locations include St-Hubert East, Chambly, Longueuil East, Brossard, Varennes and St-Hyacinthe.
With the addition of NOVUS Glass into his service offering, Real can now offer complete automotive aftermarket services under one roof, instead of outsourcing glass repair and replacement requirements to other shops. According to Real, this move will allow him to have greater control on quality repairs and ensure quicker turnaround time on repairs, while allowing his businesses the opportunity to evolve and grow exponentially.
“Most of the time, collision involves significant damage to the vehicle’s glass parts,” says Real. “By offering NOVUS Glass services in-house, we can now manage the glass repair and replacement requirements better, reducing time and costs. This also helps reassure the customer about our ability to fully repair their vehicle to OEM standards, as our technicians are qualified in these important automotive fields.”
NOVUS Glass St-Hyacinthe offers motorists in the region and surrounding areas the most advanced glass repair and replacement services at competitive prices. Along with a state-of-the-art facility, the location also operates a fully equipped NOVUS Glass mobile unit that is prepared to handle any repair or replacement needs as per the convenience of the customers wherever they may be.
Having been long associated with Fix Network, it was easy for Real and his team to understand the superior advantages of including the NOVUS Glass brand in his services. “NOVUS Glass sets itself apart by being the only one in the industry that can repair cracks up to 18 inches long. In addition, the quality of the products as well as the training offered to our technicians are essential factors that convinced me to join the NOVUS Glass network,” he explains.
The shop features state-of-the-art equipment, including a sophisticated ADAS calibration equipment, allowing technicians to recalibrate and reprogram modern vehicles fitted with the most advanced driver assistance devices. Its technicians are trained to repair or replace vehicle glass using NOVUS Glass’ patented resins and techniques.
Welcoming the new location into the Fix Network family, Yves Roy, Regional Vice President-Quebec for Fix Network, said, “Real Arcand’s teams at his six Fix Auto locations have reported strong growth over the years and I am confident that his latest venture – NOVUS Glass St-Hyacinthe – will continue that stellar performance. At Fix Network, we are determined to support such forward-thinking entrepreneurs and ensure that they continue to remain profitable.”
