Automotive franchisor Ziebart International recently announced two new master license agreements, as well as another U.S. license agreement, three more U.S. store openings and two more U.S. expansions.
The new master license agreements have been awarded to National Automotive Company – NATCO S.A.E. in Giza, Egypt, and Purdy Auto S.A. In San Jose, Costa Rica. Ziebart’s newest U.S. license was awarded to Nicholas Lambie for Morgantown, West Virginia.
“We are very excited for the openings of these locations,” said Thomas Wolfe, president and CEO of Ziebart International. “NATCO S.A.E has a long-standing history of doing business [in Egypt] and Purdy Auto S.A. also has an established presence throughout their country. We are optimistic for their success and we look forward to our business relationship with both companies for many years to come.”
Wolfe also noted his excitement for the new West Virginia location, as the company expects it to be “a strong re-entrance in a growing market.”
With the opening of Ziebart locations in Quakertown, Pennsylvania; Clinton Township, Michigan; and Dallas, “this has been a strong year of brand growth for the almost 60-year-old company,” Ziebart said in a news release.
“Ziebart is experiencing a resurgence of interest as the automotive market continues to grow,” the company said. “Factor in the growth of existing franchisees and you will see the momentum that Ziebart has created over the past few years.”
