Safelite Group said Nov. 10 it acquired the assets of the Jacksonville-based Lee & Cates Glass auto glass business.
“The acquisition by Safelite includes the auto glass business and provides Lee & Cates with the opportunity to further invest into their flat/residential operations,” Safelite CEO Tom Feeney said in a news release.
“Their history will continue as they move forward to further evolve their business,” he said.
Terms of the deal were not announced.
Brothers-in-law Thomas Lee and Raymond Cates founded Lee & Cates Glass in 1926 as an auto glass company. It has grown into a full-service glass business with locations throughout Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia.
Columbus, Ohio-based Safelite says it is the largest auto glass business under one brand in the world.
