Safelite AutoGlass®/Diamond Triumph Glass™ has opened a new supercenter in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pa., area.  The new facility 44,800 square feet, and will serve as the home base for 95 associates.

Company officials say the facility will serve more than 60,000 customers each year in Northeast Pennsylvania and Central New York, including Syracuse, Watertown and Bighamton. The warehouse holds more than 7,000 windshields and body glass parts for Safelite AutoGlass/Diamond Triumph Glass retail operations and wholesale fulfillment under the Service Auto Glass name.
"A year ago Diamond Triumph Glass was acquired by Belron US (parent company of Safelite AutoGlass® and now also Diamond Triumph Glass)," says Brett Decker, general manager of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre facility. "At that time Belron expressed a commitment to the Northeast Pennsylvania area and with the new supercenter we're able to maintain our presence in the community and retain many associates."
The company had announced last year it would close Diamond's distribution center in Kingston, Pa., and would be re-locating. The facility in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre was located in December.
