The new store provides automobile glass replacement services and is located at 9035 E. Pima Center Parkway, Suite 3, in Scottsdale, AZ 85258. The company has been formed using the local ownership/management model that Guardian Auto Glass is using extensively as it expands its footprint throughout the country. Earlier this week, the company also opened a similar locally owned store in the Atlanta area.
The Phoenix owner/management team has considerable local experience in the auto glass business, and serving Phoenix area customers. The local owner/manager team consists of Brian Mustin, Bryan Ray, Jerry G. Ray, Jim and Jill Stouffer and Sabra Taylor. Their extensive experience in the area comes from positions at local auto glass firms including: Brian Mustin, in operations management with Maverick Auto Glass and Safelite Auto Glass; Bryan Ray, in sales with Elite/GlasPro; Jerry G. Ray, an account executive with Elite/GlasPro and Safelite Auto Glass; Jim Stouffer, a former managing partner with Maverick Auto Glass; Jill Stouffer, in sales with Maverick Auto Glass; and Sabra Taylor, an account executive with Elite Auto Glass and Safelite Auto Glass. Guardian Auto Glass will be the majority owner of the new company.
“This new operation consists of a superb team of local ownership and management and fits the core concept of our model which highlights local entrepreneurship and the ability to drive individual and corporate growth objectives,” said Jerry L. Ray, vice president of Guardian Auto Glass.
Guardian Auto Glass LLC was formed in October 2010 between Guardian Glass Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Guardian Industries, and LRST, LLC to manage and grow the retail auto glass business of Guardian.
