With the safety of our customers as our top priority, we at NOVUS are committed to providing you with great results thanks to our technical expertise and customer-first mindset.
The history of NOVUS goes back to the early 1970s when Dr. Frank Werner, a retired aircraft engineering company owner, left his corporate job to focus on his passion for inventing. After experiencing damaged windshields three times and having to have the windshield replaced each time, Werner wondered if there was a way to repair damaged windshields. His curiosity coupled with help from chemical engineer Bill Wiele led to the invention of windshield repair, which Werner then patented.
Following that, Werner and Wiele built a business plan on how to introduce windshield repair to the general market for the first time. Their first company, a business called Keinath Incorporated (named after Werner’s business partner, Gerald Keinath), was located in the basement of Werner’s home. Soon after, Keinath Incorporated became NOVUS (meaning “new” or “innovative” in Latin), and in 1985 NOVUS became a full-fledged franchise company.
Since its inception, NOVUS has been the industry leader in research and development for windshield repair. NOVUS has been awarded more U.S. patents for windshield repair than the rest of the windshield repair industry combined, and continues to be a leading force in the market.
