Congratulations to Solar Gard Premium Partner GlassProtect Glassfolies on being named this month’s Solar Gard 2018 Featured Partner in EMEA!
Ronald Klarholz, Owner of GlassProtect Glasfolies, took a moment to answer our questions regarding his successful business:
When and why did you decide to start your own business?
I’ve been in window film for a very long time. Together with my father, we used to sell pre-cut automotive ready-to-install kits in Europe. I did start my own business in 2002. I was one of the first companies in The Netherlands to offer high quality service for architectural window film.
What is the most exciting part of having your own business?
I do like being responsible for the full process in my business: from marketing and communications over sales, all the way to the installation of the product. My customers do appreciate this!
What is the most challenging part of running your business? How do you tackle that challenge?
Over the years, many competitors did enter the market. Why would they pick me? I had to find ways to differentiate and to offer the best package for potential customers. I did become an official Solar Gard dealer, the partnership I have with Saint-Gobain Solar Gard does help to win jobs.
What 3 things have been critical to your success?
- I’m always honest to customers.
- I do make sure I have all the knowledge on solar films and glazing.
- I do specialize in window film only, no other products.
How do you differentiate your business from competitors?
I do specialize in window films only and I do represent a well-known and high quality brand.
What do your customers compliment you on?
The customers do appreciate my fast and professional replies and short delivery time.
