Splashes Auto Glass & Modula Racks


A passion for cars spawned a career

There’s a saying that goes something like this: Follow your passion and success will surely follow. Sometimes this ingredient can make the biggest difference of all – it certainly

did for Ryan Oliver. The founder of Splashes Auto Glass, Detail and Car Wash, and Modula Racks, has been obsessed with cars ever since he can remember.

Ryan began his career nearly two decades ago. His first job was washing cars at age 15, followed by detailing and auto-glass replacement.

“I just really love cars … you can call me a self-proclaimed lifer,” he quips. “I think everybody sees whether you’re enthusiastic or not.”

After a few years working at Auto Werks, Ryan discovered that the owner was ready to sell. “I took it over in 2003 and changed the name to Splashes,” states the entrepreneur.

A few years later he was approached by Greg Horton, who owned and operated an auto-glass business, inquiring whether Ryan wanted to merge their businesses. “In 2008 we partnered, which allowed us to really grow our company,” he explains.

Indeed, Splashes now offers state-of-the-art products and services that go above and beyond your traditional auto services. Whether it’s restoration work, window-tinting or protective coating, Splashes offers a one-stop shop. (Except repairs.)

“Whether you left your sunroof open in the rain, you dropped bleach on the back seat, or a cooler filled with crab spilled all over your trunk, we can restore your interior,” he says.
Recently, Splashes patented its WhiteWater Car Wash, a touchless car-wash system. This brush-free yet super-efficient conveyor car wash can super-clean 10 cars in 15 minutes.

Modula Racks

This January they launched a new, independent company called Modula Racks, born to cater to Splashes clients’ desire for roof racks. “We kept getting customers asking us if we sold roof racks, so we started carrying some funky, cool, well-priced, well-built Italian roof racks in Splashes. Within two years, it grew into its own entity,” explains Ryan.

Today, Modula’s showroom caters to the outdoor enthusiast’s every need, including roof and bike racks, cargo boxes, and hitches and accessories such as awnings, trays, and much more.

“We carry several Italian brands, Australia’s Rhino and some Canadian ones, including our house brand, Modula,” he adds.

As Ryan says goodbye, the passion that spawned a career is still very much evident.
