APCO Holdings, a provider and administrator of automotive finance-and-insurance products and home to the EasyCare and GWC Warranty brands, acquired Crystal Fusion Technologies, an innovator in automotive glass-protection solutions. The strategic acquisition marks a milestone for APCO as it expands its portfolio and strengthens its position in the automotive after-market industry.

Crystal Fusion Technologies is recognized for its technology and products designed to enhance the durability and performance of automotive glass surfaces. With a commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction, Crystal Fusion has built a reputation among consumers and industry professionals alike since its inception in 2007. It is distributed through more than a thousand auto, RV and boat dealers, as well as professional detailers and via e-commerce partners through its GlassParency brand.

"We are thrilled to welcome Crystal Fusion to the APCO family," said APCO Holdings CEO Tony Wanderon. "This acquisition represents an exciting opportunity to leverage the expertise and capabilities of both companies to deliver even greater value to our customers. Together, we will continue to drive innovation and position us as the leader in automotive protection solutions."

“When I decided to sell my business, finding a partner who values our employees, distributors, and dealers as much as I do was essential. With this focus, Crystal Fusion is well-positioned to prosper under new ownership,” said Crystal Fusion Technologies founder Ray Doran.

As part of the acquisition, APCO will retain key personnel and operations of Crystal Fusion, ensuring a seamless transition for customers and partners. Following the close of the transaction, Doran will transition, and Gary LoCicero, president of Crystal Fusion, will continue to lead Crystal Fusion operations.

“I’m excited to take the reins and lead Crystal Fusion into its next chapter alongside the APCO team,” LoCicero said. “With its legacy of growth and innovation, APCO is the right partner to shepherd the company into a new era.”
