The highest honor—2015’s National Dealer of the Year Award—went to Huntington Beach, Calif.-based The Tint Pros, owned by father-and-son duo Lonnie and Greg Earl. They earned the recognition due to their “dealer loyalty, growth and use of Eastman’s exclusive FormulaOne High Performance Auto Tint sales and marketing programs,” according to a company statement. They are also a Vista window film dealer.

“The Tint Pros come through as an outstanding partner,” says Darrell Reed, commercial director, North America. “Year after year Lonnie and Greg have shown that attention to service and detail, a professional shop design and a customer-focused team combined with an incredible work ethic supports their model for extraordinary growth.”

“We sincerely appreciate the recognition from Eastman and the support they provide to our successful dealerships through marketing and sales initiatives,” says founder, Lonnie Earl.
