When Dave and Leanne Kember bought UniglassPlus/Ziebart, they knew that they were taking over a successful business. “We bought the business in 2013,” Dave explains. “We owned TJ Trailers, and did hitches and wiring for the previous owner. When he decided to retire, it seemed like a good fit to combine with TJ Trailers.” While Dave brought many years of auto-body experience to the company, Leanne brought her management skills. “I’ve always loved running a business. We decided that it would be great if we got to work together. ” Their skills complement each other. “Leanne is much more organized than I could ever be. She handles the business side and I handle the technical side,” explains Dave.
The business has been located at 1167 Confederation Street since it opened in 1969. In 2007 UniglassPlus took over Ziebart’s Canadian operations and became UniglassPlus/Ziebart. “Glass repair and replacement were great additions to the Ziebart services,” says Dave. “UniglassPlus offers support and training on all the different ways we can keep your family safe.” Their core business remains vehicle protection. “We offer permanent rust-proofing for new and nearly new vehicles, Penetr’oil for used vehicles, as well as paint and fabric protection for all vehicles,” explains Leanne.
