Happy 10th Birthday
Yep 10 years. 2006 saw the start of Newcastles only 100% locally owned and operated dedicated windscreen and window tinting business. With 3 existing big national companies, a large house-glass company that does windscreens on the side and a few ‘1 man vans’ we saw a gap in Newcastles local windscreen market.
Nova Autoglass and Tinting was the chosen name as it was clear we were local and we specialised in automotive glass and window tinting. Starting up as a two man team and my wife doing the books we quickly grew as Novocastrians proved their patriotism to the city they love by choosing to support local business.
In 2008 we opened a second shop at Berkeley Vale on the Central Coast called Pitstop Windscreen Replacement. Realising later we didn’t need the second workshop and we could run the Central Coast mobile service from Newcastle. In 2012 we merged Nova Autoglass and Tinting and Pitstop Windscreen Replacement to become what we are known as now ‘Nova Pitstop’.
The last 10 years has been a great challenge with lots of ups and downs and has taught us a lot. Hopefully the next 10 years is as fun and exciting as the last!
