Driven Brands, a North American group of automotive aftermarket brands, has acquired the Quebec-based Clairus Group.

The Clairus Group deals with automotive glass distribution, replacement, and claims management. With this acquisition, Driven Brands now has an additional 240 service locations, 330 mobile locations, 22 distribution centres as well as a claims management platform.

Driven Brands states in a release that this acquisition is important to the ongoing growth and expansion of the company in the automotive aftermarket. As the company continues with its aggressive growth plans in the automotive glass segment, the Clairus Group will be forming the newly created Glass vertical.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Clairus Group into the Driven Brands family. It’s a terrific platform offering great sought-after expertise,” said Jonathan Fitzpatrick, CEO of Driven Brands. “We are excited to add and invest in a new vertical in order to expand our family of brands and generate more growth not only in this market but in the rest of North America.”

Brands operating under the Clairus Group are 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.

“This new chapter to the Clairus Group legacy is a stepping-stone in bringing the company to the next level,” said Marc Desmarais, CEO and President of Clairus Group. “Combining the expertise of both market leaders will help fast track our expansion into the North American market.”

The Clairus Group was formed in 2018 when a U.S. based private equity firm joined forces with Uniban Canada and PH Vitres d’Autos as a majority partner.
