Solar Art Window Film Named in Inc.’s 2012 RankingsSeptember 13th, 2012 by Editor
Solar Art Window Film of Laguna Hills, Calif., has been ranked in Inc.’s “Inc. 5,000” list. The company was ranked 1,974 on the list of 5,000 recognized businesses.
Solar Art, which installs and provides both commercial and residential films, experienced a 137 percent growth over three years. The company made $882,000 in 2008; profits skyrocketed to $2.1 million by 2011. The small business of only 12 employees ranks 54 in the energy industry, according to Inc.
“It’s an honor to be on the list and be associated with the magazine and the other companies that are on it,” says president and CEO, Matthew Darienzo.
“People outside of the industry have no idea what these films can do; there’s a lack of awareness,” Darienzo continues. “Over the last couple of years, with new energy efficiency ratings, this is a time for window film to become more apparent and become a more viable option. It’s about dealers getting out there and showing what these films can do.”
According to the company website, Darienzo acquired a Tint Plus in 2000 in Orange County as his first window film company. He later became the CEO of Solar Art in 2009 and acquired 3M dealer Sun-Tech Window Film in Reseda, Calif., in 2011, which now operates under the Solar Art name.
