Alliance, Inc.
New Alliance to Increase Business for the Automotive Glass Industry

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Pilkington North America announces an
agreement with American Auto Glass Alliance (AAGA).

The AAGA's innovative communications technologies provide 24/7 services
assuring greater market penetration and market share within any given market.
Pilkington's participation assures that these resources are available to all
independent glass shops regardless of the shops' current resources.

"Pilkington prides itself on delivering:

    --  Total Reliability
    --  OEM Quality
    --  Best in Class Service
    --  Innovation in products, service & economics
    --  Total competitiveness package
    --  Professional behavior & management

    --  First to market product offering

 

And we look forward to working with the AAGA to bring incremental work into
our key customers' shops. Our sales staff will be the point of contact for
more information regarding this fantastic service," states Bill George
Director of Marketing for AGR North America.

AAGA President Stuart Weatherman remarked that "This is a time unlike any
other in the history of the auto glass industry.  The internet and interactive
web sites have changed buyers forever.  Glass shops can no longer count on
traditional customers shopping from 8-5.  To be effective today, we must all
maximize our marketing dollars by responding to customers around the clock 365
days a year.  The AAGA schedules an average of two jobs for alliance member
shops after hours daily.  Most shop owners are unaware of what they are losing
to their competition after hours.  Who is responding to the after hour's
opportunities for my shop?  Who is winning these jobs?  This must be a concern
for any resourceful glass shop owner today for it may be measure of the
survivor in today's environment."

The AAGA program for independent shops is a bold step in changing the way
independent glass retailers do business. Through the various AAGA services,
members will have the ability to compete effectively with the larger regional
and national consolidators. AAGA services include:

    --  Remote Outsource Services including 24/7 call center and CSI
follow-up;
    --  Internet-based Point-of-Sale (POS)
    --  Marketing and Advertising programs

    --  And other programs that provide cost savings to AAGA clients
