Bio
After having to replace three windshields due to small breaks, inventor Dr. Frank Werner teamed up with chemical engineer Bill Wiele to find a way to repair windshields rather than replacing them. In 1972, Werner partnered with Gerald Keinath, patented his windshield repair system, and designed a business plan to bring it to market. The business, originally called Keinath Inc., was soon renamed Novus (Latin for "new"), and began franchising in 1985.
