XPEL Announces Acquisition of Pro-Tect Film Distributing Inc.

December 14th, 2016 by Editor

According to a recent report, XPEL Technologies Corp. has acquired Pro-Tect Film Distributing Inc., a provider of installation services for automotive paint protection and window film, and commercial and residential window film, in Las Vegas, Nev.

In conjunction with the acquisition, XPEL also announced the restructuring of its licensing agreement with Proform Protective Films Inc., which has operated as a separate library of paint protection film (PPF) patterns within the company’s Design Access Program (DAP). With the restructuring, the library will become fully integrated as part of XPEL’s DAP offering. Integrating the technology will add more high-end vehicle designs into the DAP and add additional pattern coverage not previously offered, such as motorcycles, while also eliminating duplicate designs between the two libraries.

Michael Mayall, Pro-Tect’s CEO and president will join XPEL and head up a variety of new initiatives.

“We’re excited to welcome Mike Mayall and the Pro-Tect team, who enjoy a strong reputation in the Las Vegas market. We look forward to combining our existing automotive paint protection products with the customer-centric focus and service model that Mike and his team are known for, to deliver better value for both new and existing customers in the Las Vegas area,” said Ryan Pape, president and CEO of XPEL. “Furthermore, our integration of the Proform database will build on the work Proform founders Mike Mayall and Rob Freeman have done with the pattern library and enable us to build a broader and deeper pattern database for our customers globally.”

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
