Solar Art Acquires Five Star Window Coatings

August 2nd, 2023 by Chris Collier

Solar Art announced the acquisition of Five Star Window Coatings. Five Star has a long history in the Midwest and was originally founded in 1989. This acquisition is Solar Art’s first in the Midwest and expands its reach into new territories.

Five Star began selling architectural solar films and has since expanded into security film and custom printing services. Five Star serves mostly commercial customers and has a location in Grand Rapids, Mich. They have been listed multiple times on the WINDOW FILM magazine Top Dealers List.

Five Star Window Coatings owner Randy Hutson will stay on during the transition and will work in a consulting role to help establish Solar Art in the new market. Solar Art will add 12 employees from Five Star with this acquisition.

“Five Star Window Coatings is a company that has a long history in this industry and an exceptional reputation,” says Solar Art CEO Matthew Darienzo. “It is exactly the type of company we like to partner with and we are excited to be a part of this new market through what they have built over the last 34 years.”
