Driven Brands Acquires Clairus Group
Nov. 18, 2019—Driven Brands has acquired the Quebec-based Clairus Group, which adds 240 physical service locations, over 330 mobile locations, 22 distribution centers and a claims management platform to the Driven Brands portfolio.
In 2018, a U.S. based private equity firm became majority partner with Uniban Canada and PH Vitres d’Autos, to establish the Clairus Group, the second largest vertically integrated automotive glass and claims management provider in North America.
The acquisition of Clairus is an integral part of Driven Brands’ continued growth in the automotive aftermarket industry. Clairus will form the newly-created Glass vertical.
Driven Brands plans to continue its growth in the automotive glass space.
Marquee brands include UNIGLASS, VITRO PLUS, Go! Glass, and Docteur du Pare-Brise under the service channel, PH Vitres d’Autos under distribution, and Conversense, its claims management platform.
