NGS Films and Graphics Makes Inc. List 3 Years in a Row

August 22nd, 2018 by Emmariah Holcomb

Companies across the country have been waiting to see if they made the cut in this years’ Inc. 5000 ranking. Window film company NGS Films and Graphics took 3348th place, but this isn’t the first time the Atlanta, Ga company has been featured. 2018 makes the third consecutive time it’s been listed and owners are already looking to make it a fourth time.

“It’s our third year in a row on the list, majority of businesses don’t even get two years in a row when they apply. I can’t wait to continue working towards a fourth year,” James Beale, NGS Films and Graphics managing partner, says. The company had $9.5 million in revenue last year, this year the company skyrocketed by earning more than $13 million in revenue. “We’re looking at 40 percent growth overall since last year and I’m very pleased with how our company continues to grow,” Beale says.

Having a successful company that grows nationally and regionally at rates above 20 percent each year is no easy task. According to Beale, NGS Films and Graphics’ low employee turnover rate is to thank. “We have only had two employees willingly leave our company – that says a lot don’t you think,” Beale says. The company believes in treating its 27 employees so well they don’t look to leave.

The Georgia based company says it doesn’t advertise. How can a window film company not put its name out there and have steady business year over year – customer referral?

“I would say about 70 percent of our business is from our customer referrals. So many people contact us saying they heard we were the ones to go to,” Beale says. One of its core values is putting the customer and vendors first, this can be easily seen from its high scores on customer surveys.

“I don’t think there’s another company like us, we do it all,” Beale says.

Being able to offer an array of services has even caught the government’s attention. “The government can order from us and we often do projects that other companies just aren’t qualified to do,” Beale says.

Though the company is grateful for its continued success, it isn’t stopping just yet. There are plans in place that may set a new bar for others in the industry. “We’re working on a partner program to help smaller window film companies complete projects they aren’t qualified to do just yet,” Beale says. The work doesn’t stop there. “We have training videos on YouTube and want to establish a certification program and national standard for the industry,” he adds.

Note: NGS partner Patrick Coyle will present on the coming changes in the film industry at the International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off to be held September 27-29 in San Antonio. For more information visit
