A well-known UK brand providing automotive glass repair and replacement services throughout the UK and Eire.

Montagu successfully won control of the business when it was put up for sale by Heywood Williams Group plc.  

We were attracted to its strong and resilient position in the market as well as its very diverse customer base, which included all the UK’s major motor insurers and many of the biggest fleet users. 

The business was successfully sold in March 2001 to Lex Service.
