  1. I think this is a good move, because you are now not only a manufacture distributing boxes of film.You will now be involved at the ground level, experience what it takes to to finding clients and to get your product onto vehicles. It also opens a door for you to teach new potential clients the complete experience on how to run and succeed in the fitment business.
    Trust me I have been practicing this for over four decades and it has worked very well. I you put hundred of people into business by bringing them into my business and teaching them ever aspect of our business and letting them go into the market place with passion and know how.
