Robbie Price has been appointed chairperson of the Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) Credentialing Committee. Price, who is a regional vice president for Glass America, was named chair during the meeting of the Credentialing Committee at the AGSC Winter Meetings in January 2024.
Price has been in the auto glass industry for 40 years and has served in many different roles from store manager to customer servicerep, technician trainer, fleet manager and more.
“I understand the operations of the store, I understand the auto glass installation process itself,” he says. “I can be a big help educating people if they need help on how the process goes.”
Price began working at Glass America in 2008, and serves as the company’s AGSC Coordinator. This was how he first got involved with AGSC.
“My job was to facilitate communications with AGSC and to train our technicians on the AGRSS Standard,” he says. “Then that just evolved, and I joined (AGSC) committees, and I’ve been participating ever since.”
The Credentialing Program is important to Price because it is a form of validation.
“I’m very enthusiastic about the validation process,” he says. “(Credentialing) is basically just a validation that the technicians know what they’re doing and they follow the Standard properly.”
The AGSC Credentialing Program administers periodic, random audits of member companies, their procedures and personnel. The Program validates that member companies are following the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS). For more information, please visit www.agsc.org.
