August 10th, 2021 by Editor

New Zealand’s vehicle glass repair and replacement company, Smith&Smith, has acquired Exceed, a nation-wide window and door hardware repairs, insect screen and security door installation specialist.

“Smith&Smith® has been built on a strong history of family values and for this reason, Exceed is the perfect addition to our family of businesses,” said Michelle van Gaalen, Smith&Smith managing director. “When I first met Exceed’s founders David and Karen last year, I was impressed with not only how successful a business they had built, but also their values and passion for their people, franchise owners and customers. The more we saw, the more we felt that Exceed would be a great fit alongside Smith&Smith and Laser®. Being a franchise model, it’s a business we know that we can support and grow.”

Smith&Smith will provide the Exceed team with a range of support, particularly around procurement, digital technology and marketing.

“When we first met Michelle, we immediately had respect for each other and knew our principles were aligned. We feel very confident we are leaving our business of 30 years in capable hands, and know the principles that our team values and lives by will be respected,” said Exceed Owners, David and Karen Dovey.

“Exceed are just as passionate as we are about making a difference that is focused on quality and care. I look forward to not only supporting them, but also bringing their skills and expertise into Smith&Smith® to strengthen our team and business,” added van Gaalen.

Exceed joins Smith&Smith as of 2 August 2021. Matt Still steps into the newly established role of trade services director, reflecting his responsibilities in both the Laser and Exceed businesses.
