The company has also invested in a new reactive sputtering machine, which lead to the decision of expanding into another location. “The machine took up so much room in our San Diego facility that we needed to expand to another location,” says Kendall Combs, global marketing director for the company. “Fortunately, we were able to find a building in Oceanside that perfectly matched our needs.”

Solar Gard now has seven manufacturing facilities throughout the U.S., three in Europe, two in Asia and one in Australia. “Solar Gard is in growth mode, and we aim to be the reference in high value products and solutions for the window film industry,” Combs says. “Keeping up with growth and achieving our vision requires additional capacity and capabilities. We have made very large investments this year in order to better serve the industry in the years to come.

“This investment reflects our commitment to providing the highest levels of quality and product innovation for partners and customers across the architecture, business and automotive worlds—all while contributing to the manufacture of American-made products.”

The news follows the company’s latest announcement regarding its exclusive partnership with ikeGPS, developers of the laser measurement tool Spike for architectural measurements.
