Madico Acquires ClearPlex

November 21st, 2016 by Katherine Coig

Madico Inc., manufacturers of automotive, solar, safety and security films, announced today it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire select assets of ClearPlex Corporation, a supplier of protection films based in Draper, Utah.

ClearPlex markets and distributes optically-clear, patent-pending glass protection films and related products for use in the transportation and electronic markets throughout the world. ClearPlex provides solutions to the problems of glass damage, replacement, integrity and safety.

“Although Madico has been the production partner for ClearPlex for the past 10 years, we are very pleased to welcome ClearPlex employees and customers to directly work with Madico. ClearPlex has done excellent work in developing the application of clear film to protect windshields and other windows on automobiles, trucks, and construction equipment,” says Jeffrey Plummer, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Madico. “They have also created a premium brand and established themselves as leaders in this segment.”

The agreement combines the strengths of Madico and ClearPlex, by leveraging Madico’s global network and resources with ClearPlex’s product and application expertise. According to Plummer, “We see this as a perfect and natural fit and are very pleased that our close business relationship has brought us to this point.”

  1. What warren-tee do they offer on exterior applications? From our years of experience these exterior products for windscreen have very low life expediency and tend to start grazing after a few months. We are reluctant we sell and apply them because of come backs. It is more hazel than it is worth. Your comments would be very much appreciated. Kind Regards Leon Levy Klingshield South Africa

  2. Leon Levy, thank you for your inquiry. ClearPlex® automotive glass protection film has a warranty of 18 months or 18,000 miles, whichever comes first, from the date of purchase by the original retail purchaser. ClearPlex® film is applied to the exterior surface of a windshield, preventing damage from ordinary highway rock strikes and road debris. It is virtually invisible, providing optical clarity and UV protection. ClearPlex® protects windshields against normal abrasion; however, the film will need to be occasionally replaced as normal wear will cause the film to eventually break down. Vehicle owners appreciate the ability to easily replace their windshield film rather than being forced to purchase an entire new windshield.
