Meet the Supporters of the 2013 IWFC:

June 12th, 2013 by Editor

Editor’s Note: Window Film magazine is marking the days until the 2013 International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ by introducing this year’s exhibitors with company profiles. Over the next few weeks, we will continue profiling companies you will see on the show floor—be sure to stay tuned.

We are excited to welcome, also known as Performance Tools Distributing, as a Supporter of the 2013 International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ (IWFC). The event is set to be held this September 18-20 in Tampa, Fla., at the Tampa Convention Center and Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina. The Exhibition/Extravaganza will be held September 18-20.

During the conference, attendees will be able to take part in educational seminars by industry leaders and expert speakers, network on the Exhibition/Extravaganza show floor with window film manufacturers and suppliers and view the Tint-Off™ competitions.

We spoke with Dick Austin, manager of retail operations and training for 44Tools.

Window Film magazine: Dick, why did 44Tools choose to exhibit at the 2013 IWFC?

Austin: IWFC is the ideal show for us to be involved with. We participated in the IWFC show last year in Louisville and had a great time meeting with so many friends and customers.

Window Film magazine: Why is an event like IWFC important to the film industry?

Austin: It is vital that manufacturers, suppliers, installers and shop owners continue to interact with others within this industry. Although every business competes with one another in some form, it remains essential that we all work together to promote the benefits of window film and the creditability of the industry as a whole.

Window Film magazine: What can attendees expect to see from 44Tools at the 2013 show?

Austin: We will be there showcasing the latest and greatest tools and accessories available. This will include some new Olfa products, several new meters that will be of great interest to both automotive and flat glass installers, some new installation squeegees, plus much more.

The International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ is co-sponsored by Window Film magazine and the International Window Film Association. The event is managed by Window Film magazine and held concurrently with Auto Glass Week™.

Based in central Ohio, Tools Distributing has been distributing installation tools for the window film industry since 1994. While the core business remains focused on the supply of window film, paint protection and vinyl installation tools, 44Tools also distributes a variety of vinyl and PPF products, including installation kits in addition to other popular car care products.
