May 20th, 2015 by Casey Flores

After fifteen years of experience, placing in the International Window Film Tint-Off twicewinning the gold medal once—and becoming a well-respected player in the window film industry, Randy Humphries has taken the bold step into entrepreneurship.

After 15 years in the business, Randy Humphries started his own company, Tint Works in Burlington, Mass.

Burlington, Mass.-based Tint Works celebrated its grand opening last Saturday with owner Humphries at the helm. His company offers automotive, residential, commercial and paint protection and vinyl film installation services.

“It’s been my dream,” Humphries says. “It’s a little stressful, of course, but that comes with opening a business. But now I can do whatever I want—and I enjoy that.”

Owning a window film company was the natural next step for Humphries, who’s set himself apart in the industry in the last couple of years. In 2013, he took home the title of “World’s Best Automotive Window Film Installer,” and in 2014, placed third in the architectural division.

Despite just celebrating the grand opening, things are busy, according to Humphries. “I’m slammed right now,” he says. He hopes to hire soon, but for now, he’s a one-man-show.

“Right now, I’m scheduling to where I can handle it,” he says. “When it gets to the point when I can’t handle it, we’ll go from there.”

Humphries celebrated the grand opening with friends, family and business associates.

“While he is new to being a store owner he is a strong person with core family values. His wife is involved in business and together they are willing and open to learning. They possess a learning spirit,” says Solar Gard sales and marketing director Lawrence Constantin.
