Safelite AutoGlass Relocates East Hartford SuperCenter to Cromwell

HARTFORD, CT – Feb. 17, 2014 - Safelite AutoGlass® has relocated its East Hartford SuperCenter to a new facility at 40 Sebethe Drive in Cromwell. The 36,000-square-foot facility is 10,000 square feet larger, which allows for 15 percent more in-stock inventory for faster customer service. Increased capacity will also allow Safelite to hire new technicians in the market, on top of the company’s 100+ statewide employees.

Easily accessible from State Route 91, the new Safelite SuperCenter offers a comfortable waiting area for customers with access to Wi-Fi. The larger shop allows technicians to work on up to six cars at a time. Mobile appointments remain an option for customers in the area as well.

“We look forward to continuing to serve Hartford and the surrounding communities,” said Donais. “We are committed to providing the best customer service and quality work. In addition to windshield repair and replacement, we also provide back and side glass replacements. We hope community members will think of Safelite® when they need auto glass services.”
