THE NOVUS STORY
Before windshield repair was invented in 1972, wasteful and costly replacement was the best you could hope for. Our founder, inventor Dr. Frank Werner, knew there had to be a better way after the break-prone landscape of Wyoming sent three of his windshields to the local landfill.
After developing his solution with chemical engineer Bill Wiele and his business plan with partner Gerald Keinath, the company was brought to the masses in 1985 in the form of franchises. Literally creating an industry from the ground up, only one name truly fit: NOVUS, Latin for "innovative".
NOVUS has been awarded more U.S. patents for windshield repair than any other company in the windshield repair industry.
