Nation’s leading experts in glass restoration come together to form new team 23 September 2009 Bend, Oregon – Glass Mechanix, a comprehensive glass repair equipment, supply and services company, today announced the launch of its new Scratch Mechanix division.

Scratch Mechanix has brought together the top experts in the glass restoration field to consult, train and contract for solving glass damage issues anywhere in the world.

The highly trained technicians of the new division will be using Glass Mechanix’s proprietary damage removal system in the field, The XRS Restoration System. “For the new Scratch Mechanix team, we have collected the most experienced crew in the business – representing several decades of on-the-job experience,” said Mike Boyle, president of Glass Mechanix. “Their expertise will allow them to evaluate the cause of glass damage for our clients, as well as provide on-site training and system operation to eliminate the damage problems.” Many large-scale projects experience glass and other surface damage during or after the construction process.
