Madico, Inc. (Madico) announced the acquisition of its two Canadian distributors, Courage Distributing, Inc. and Window Film Systems and the formation of a new entity, Madico Canada. The company will operate both former Courage distribution locations in Oakville, Ontario, and Richmond, British Columbia, to serve the market.
Owned and operated by brothers Todd and Trent Courage, Courage Distributing has been a wholesale distribution company selling window film, paint protection film, and accessories since it was founded in 1993, according to Madico. The Courage brothers were inducted into the Window Film Hall of Fame in 2015, receiving the Award of Excellence for their dealer service and support as well as philanthropic endeavors.
Madico states all current Courage employees will become part of Madico Canada with both Courage brothers joining the company in operations and sales leadership roles.
Window Film Systems owner Peter Yates will continue to liaise with Madico Canada dealers. “Both Window Film Systems and Courage have been outstanding partners and successful distributors for decades. We intend to support the Canadian market like never before with enhancements such as a fuller range of products and significantly increased marketing support,” said Jim Black, window film sales director.
With the addition of the two Canadian locations, Madico will provide factory direct service to all customers in North America with a total of nine service centers located throughout the United States and Canada, according to the company.
