Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came
It all started as a joke, I came to meet two guys unhappy complaining of how the Rwanda Vehicle inspection center forced them to replace their car glasses after found them with 4″ long crack in the passenger side and another with a combination crack. By that day I never took it as a point then later after a months visited a friend who used to work on my vehicle then met the similar case of also someone who has the same crack proximately 20 inches and for him at least he had looked everywhere on market but never found any windshield so the only option was to order it from USA because it was a Ford.
That’s when something came up in my mind that I should look for a solution for this case, as usual, I googled my laptop and found four companies doing this technology; One from China, one from UK, one from Netherlands and one USA. I composed them the same email requesting working with them of which the following day got three responses.
China wanted a deposit of $30,000 in order to work with me,
UK were not interested in expanding their market to Africa since they haven’t even certified theirs.
Netherlands up to now they haven’t responded yet and USA company was so excited to open their market to a new channel in Africa and they were ready to provide all the trainings I required for me to start but on my own expenses. I apply for a student visa and got me started after six months I became one of the best students and purchased a startup kit then returned back home.
Things weren’t easy as expected because the startup kit was designed accordingly to USA weather with no dust when I came back home all the cracks were full of dust and also our vehicle inspection center never knew that this technology exists. Had to sell my small land and order a medium machine, register mechanics for training and also doing demos with Vehicle inspection center.
Today Pure Pro is the first company in the region that can only repair a broken windshield that valued as an innovation in Automobile Industry.

A few words about your competitors
My competitors are the Glass Suppliers that I also treat as my customers because most of the time their product get damaged as they are coming and call me for repairing of the damaged one.
Garage operators who offer replacement but also we are partners on other hand since none of the mechanics is specialized in car glass replacement so they find easily repairing for them than replacement since when a glass is replaced can never get fixed the same was it was and other cars their molds are old so when removed is rarely fixed back.
Car owners who don’t care about their vehicle that leaves their cracks grow worse until when are beyond repair.
