Leading European Distributor Adds the Industry’s Premier Scratch Removal Solution To the Line of Building Restoration Products it Represents

PACHECO, Calif., July 7, 2009 – GlassRenu®, manufacturers of the industry’s premier solution for removing scratches and acid damage of any size and depth from all types of glass, today announced it has selected GRATCH Company, as its first European distributor of GlassRenu scratch removal system. The companies began discussions 18 months ago regarding GlassRenu's entrance into the European market place and formalized their relationship this week.

“GRATCH is a go-to resource for building restoration products, which makes GlassRenu and its ability to repair scratched glass without distortion a perfect fit for their product line,” noted GlassRenu COO Cody Thomas. “The company’s expertise, coupled with its deep connections and knowledge of the European market, makes GRATCH the ideal partner to help make GlassRenu’s entry into the European market a success.”

Based in the Netherlands with offices in Germany, Belgium and Spain, GRATCH is an established distributor of products used in the building restoration process in Europe. GlassRenu joins its line up of anti-graffiti products, which includes removal systems for brick and concrete, as well as graffiti prevention coatings. During the past 18 months GRATCH has been provisionally distributing GlassRenu products and introducing GlassRenu to the European market on a limited basis.

Jean-Paul Kremers, managing director of the GRATCH Company commented, “By introducing GlassRenu in Europe, we are delivering a new technology and effective solution for combating the growing incidence of graffiti in all the markets we serve. Initial response to the system has been very positive; we anticipate GlassRenu to be a big seller for our company.”

Developed in the field by a veteran glass technician, GlassRenu’s signature Contractor Grade Glass Renewal System quickly removes glass damage without visible distortion. Up and running in under two minutes, the system uses dry, not wet, technology to remove even the most severe scratch or acid damage from all types of glass. The system’s easy-to-learn, three-step process relieves users from having to switch between numerous tools and utilizes GlassRenu’s patented RenuDisk® technology, so that even novice users can restore up to 15 square feet of glass per hour.

The Contractor Grade Glass Renewal System is available for purchase as a field-ready kit with all tools and enough materials to repair approximately 500 square feet of glass. To order, or for more information about the system in the United State please visit, in Europe, or


GRATCH Company was founded in 1999 as a resource for graffiti removal products and services. Since that time, the company has expanded its product line to also include preventative anti-graffiti coatings and products, as well as innovative restoration tools like the Tornado negative pressure blasting system, which repairs and restores hard surfaces like stone and aluminum quickly, cleanly and quietly.

In addition to its proprietary products, GRATCH also represents international brands in Europe. In January 2009, the company acquired the sales rights to the Renovio family of products that clean, renovate and protect surfaces like glass, aluminum, Iknox and polyplast. Most recently GRATCH opened GlassRenu Europe, bringing the industry’s premier solution for removing scratches and acid damage from all types of glass to the European market.
