THIS MONTH'S FEATURED PARTNER

Joe's Mobile Tint

Congratulations to Jose Flores, Owner of Joe’s Mobile Tint in Madera, CA, on being named Solar Gard’s April 2017 Featured Partner.

As a proud Solar Gard® dealer, work of the highest quality and world-class service are paramount to Jose. He took a few minutes to share some insight into growing his business:

What’s the biggest challenge of running your window film business? How do you tackle and overcome?

It’s difficult to accommodate all customer scheduling requests, but the ComputerCut® software saves us valuable time and increases productivity by allowing us to plot all the cars at once. We have become so much more efficient, and shop now operates like an assembly line.

What is the most exciting part of being in the window film industry?

I meet so many amazing people that I never would have, had I not pursued this as a career.

What has been critical to the growth of your company?

Adding more manpower and offering a variety of services / products to keep the shop busy year-round. By expanding our service mix to include Clearshield® Pro paint protection film and nanoceramic technology, we have definitely increased our profits!

Through his technical support and consultative approach, my Territory Manager Nick Casucci has also been extremely helpful in growing our operations.

What’s your definition of success?

To be busy all the time and recognized in the community for your achievements. The key is knowing how to juggle your business and personal life so that it all runs smoothly.
