Safelite Group Acquires Glasspro

Glasspro is an award-winning, independent auto glass repair and replacement company founded in 1995 by Paul Heinauer, a well-respected leader in the industry and pillar of the Charleston, South Carolina, community.

Safelite Group, one of the nation’s leading vehicle glass services companies and owner of Safelite AutoGlass, has reached an agreement to acquire the assets of Glasspro Inc. The transaction was completed at the close of business Jan. 4, 2019.

Glasspro is an award-winning, independent auto glass repair and replacement company founded in 1995 by Paul Heinauer, a well-respected leader in the industry and pillar of the Charleston, South Carolina, community.

“I’ve always been incredibly impressed with Paul’s leadership and Glasspro’s focus on delivering excellence,” said Safelite’s President and CEO Tom Feeney. “He is a man of great integrity with actions that consistently put his people first. It is one of the deepest honors for Safelite to welcome Glasspro associates to our business and to our family.”

Glasspro operates 11 auto glass locations in North Charleston, Mount Pleasant, Summerville, Goose Creek, Georgetown, Walterboro, Bluffton, Myrtle Beach, Columbia, Greenville, and Florence, and will increase Safelite’s current South Carolina footprint.

“For the past 23 years I have been blessed and privileged to lead a business that has experienced great success, thanks to the dedication and hard work of our Glasspro associates,” said Heinauer. “The decision to sell to Safelite was far from being an easy one. Our people and our customers deserve an organization that delivers excellence. Through discussions with my family and close friends, I found comfort in knowing our business philosophies align well with Safelite’s, particularly around our mission of serving our customers and taking care of our people.”

Feeney continued, “Paul’s contributions to his team and to his community are significant and his legacy will live on as we build upon the solid foundation he has established over the past two decades. I’m confident he’ll be proud of the results.”
