Born out of an industry need for a fast, affordable and easy-to-use process to repair glass surfaces damaged from scratches, pits, chips and acid, GlassRenu completed initial research and development of its patented Dry Grinding System and preliminary field testing of its proprietary RenuDisks in late 2006.
Throughout 2007, the company expanded testing and development, resulting in the introduction of its comprehensive Contractor Grade System in the United States in June. The system was heralded as an immediate success throughout the industry and orders for systems poured in from around the country.
In 2008, demand for the GlassRenu Scratch Removal System continued to escalate, with the introduction of the process into a wide range of commercial, municipal and industrial applications, including: graffiti removal, construction repair, transportation & marine safety, glass & furniture manufacturing, and facility maintenance.
In 2009, the company appointed its first European Dealer, it’s first Australian Dealer and began to ship systems internationally in limited quantity.
