The Mobile Electronics Specialists of America (MESA) buying/marketing group for car audio announced it has selected Solar Gard as its window film and paint protection supplier partner.
Window film is a new category for the buying group and the alliance will allow MESA members to easily enter the market, said MESA Executive Director Ryan Gunter. “For those members that are already installing window film and paint protection, this partnership will make them more competitive.”
Solar Gard will offer MESA member negotiated pricing. It will also offer product training, and use of the industry’s only “cloud-based plotter program.”
Also, in the second half of the year, MESA plans to offer a MESA-branded window film line, available only to MESA dealer members, supplied by Solar Gard.
Solar Gard, based in San Diego, makes architectural and automotive window films, photovoltaics and custom coatings sold under the Solar Gard, Panorama, Quantum and Solar Gard Armorcoat brands.
As of early February, MESA dealer members tallied 78, with a total of 185 store locations, covering 33 states and representing $198 million in sales.
