Firm to supply replacement glass to personal lines broker’s clients


Auto Windscreens has won an exclusive contract to supply glass to clients of personal lines insurance broking group BGL.

BGL manages motor insurance offerings  for big-name brands including the Post Office, M&S,  RAC, Lloyds TSB and Halifax.

Under the deal, Auto Windscreens will handle glass repairs and replacements for all BGL Group customers.

To meet demand, Auto Windscreens has employed another 110 staff around the country and has opened four additional fitting centres in London, Surrey and the West Midlands, taking the number to 30.

Auto Windscreens managing director  Nigel Davies said: “Winning BGL Group’s business is a fantastic way to end what has been a phenomenal year for Auto Windscreens. It’s also a great start to 2013 and we’re looking forward to showing even more people what Total Customer Satisfaction feels like!”

BGL group director David Downie added: “Several million people buy a motor insurance policy from the BGL Group every year, so we need to be certain that they will receive excellent service from all our partners. Auto Windscreens have demonstrated that they can meet all our requirements for a high quality windscreen repair and replacement service, and we are pleased to have them on board.”

Motor insurance group Markerstudy bought Chesterfield-based Auto Windscreens in 2011 after the company entered administration.
