After 10 years working as a sales director and general manager at Ziebart International Marc Desmarais accepted a position in 2002 as the president of a subsidiary company of PPG which is one of the largest glass retail and distribution companies in North America.

At this time Desmarais saw the potential of expanding the retail auto glass business with a co-branding of auto glass repair and replacement and the appearance and protection business of Ziebart. This creation formed VitroPlus/Ziebart and UniglassPlus/Ziebart brands. At this time he purchased the Ziebart master franchise for the province of Quebec.

With the glass business offering need products and the Ziebart appearance and protection business offering consumer want products, this is a dynamic option for all car enthusiasts and business entrepreneurs. After tremendous success in Quebec the opportunity to expand across Canada arose in 2007. This expansion increased the store count to 101 locations including 87 Ziebart stores throughout Canada and continues to increase.

With our strong marketing initiatives we have been recognized as a top marketing company since 2005 by the Canadian Franchise Association as well as being awarded as the Franchisor of the Year in 2008 by the Quebec Franchise Council. As a leader in the auto glass repair and replacement business as well as the appearance and protection business, we bring tremendous value and service to all our customers. Whether a car owner looking to protect the longevity of your vehicle or a business entrepreneur looking to join success, we are anxious to assist.
