About Novus Glass
The NOVUS claim to fame isn't just windshield repair — NOVUS invented the entire concept and process. Before NOVUS the best anyone with a damaged windshield could hope for was a costly and wasteful replacement process. Novus hasn't stopped innovating since the invention and development of the windshield repair process. Earning over 30 patents, the organization has repaired over 35 million windshields alone, saving the public millions as a forward-thinking Green Company long before the term even existed. NOVUS now offers a suite of automotive-related glass services, from glass repair to glass replacement, scratch removal, window tinting, and more.
Values & History
The Novus Glass story began with founder and inventor Dr. Frank Werner in 1972. Looking for an alternative to the costly and wasteful practices of windshield replacement, Dr. Werner was sure there had to be a better way — especially when the rough Wyoming landscape sent three of his windshields to the local landfill. Together with chemical engineer Bill Wiele, Dr. Werner developed a unique, never-before-seen process, and the vision of windshield repair became a reality. Franchise opportunities opened up in 1985 under the aptly named NOVUS, Latin for "innovative." Today Novus has been awarded more US patents for windshield repair than any other company in the industry.
Automotive glass repair saves American motorists millions every year, with the industry taking in around $658 million in revenue over 2019 alone, growing an average of 4.2% between 2014 and 2019. Roughly 1,867 businesses offer automotive glass repair, but NOVUS invented the process and has continued to innovate beyond the competition, offering investors a solid and clear choice for franchise ownership.
