October 21, 2020
Troy, MI – Ziebart, a 60-year-old global provider of vehicle appearance and protection services, has announced its newest signed agreement to bring its complete vehicle protection services to Australia in 2021. Australia’s Ziebart is expected to open in Sydney by April of next year. The master agreement calls for continued, strategic growth to reach up to 20 locations throughout the country in the next 10 years.
Australia has maintained a historically significant presence in the automotive industry over the years – specifically in the pickup truck space – claiming the third spot among the leading sellers of vehicles in the world following only behind the United States of America and South Africa. The country is also known for its exceptional ability to provide high quality services in the automotive sector, making it an ideal match for Ziebart, a brand that prides itself in the highest-quality products, services and exceptional workmanship.
“We’ve had sights set on this market for years, making this development especially exciting,” said Thomas E. Wolfe, President & Chief Executive Officer, Ziebart International Corporation. “Given Australia’s strong automotive tie, the country has a high-demand for high-quality, vehicle protection services from a trusted international brand like Ziebart. We look forward to this next stage of continued growth as we work with a high-caliber master franchise group to give communities across Australia the ability to keep their vehicles looking like-new for longer; inside and out for many years to come.”
Beyond Australia, Ziebart has plans to continue its international development, as it is actively seeking qualified franchise and master franchise prospects to develop the brand’s presence across Europe, Africa, China, India, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. With the addition of Australia, Ziebart will now operate in 33 countries around the world with 400 worldwide licensed locations and 1200 service centers globally.
