Cary Group is one of the market leaders in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, the UK , Spain, Portugal, Germany, Austria and Luxemburg in the repair and replacement of vehicle glass, with a complementary offering in auto body repair and SMART repair (Small to Medium Area Repair Techniques).

Cary Group has national reach on all our markets, bringing us close to our end customers. Our decentralised business model emphasises entrepreneurial spirit at the workshops. The local workshop managers are the heroes of the company and are supported by central functions to ensure they have the tools they need to provide high-quality services in an efficient manner.

Cary Group is a problem-solver for both insurance companies and end customers. Thank to efficient operations, geographical accessibility and outstanding reputation for quality and customer satisfaction, the group has grown and become a strong partner for insurance companies.

Cary Group has a sustainable strategy. With good local accessibility, high-quality products and smart solutions, we help our customers make simplified and sustainable choices. Wherever possible we strive to repair windscreens, resulting in a high repair rate. When there is no option but to replace a windscreen, Cary Group uses recycled glass and the major part of scrapped windscreens are recycled and reused, primarily as building material.
