The SEMA Show is the most influential trade event in the world for manufacturers of automotive specialty products, including window films for tinting, security, storm safety, solar protection and printed graphics. More than 60,000 trade professionals are expected to attend the event November 3– 6.

Naturally, National Glazing Solutions (NGS) wouldn’t miss it. More than 2,000 new products will be debuted from more than 2,000 manufacturers, spanning a whopping million square feet in the massive Las Vegas Convention Center. 3M Window Film, Solar Gard and Madico will all be there in force.

According to James Beale, managing partner and vice president of sales for NGS, “It’s critical for us to soak up everything the SEMA show has to offer, so we can stay connected with ‘what’s next’ and bring the latest options back to our customers.”

In addition to new products, the SEMA Show hosts “Education Days”, which includes more than five dozen sessions on industry trends, breaking technologies and advancements in customer service.

“What we learn from these thought leaders is invaluable across all areas of our business,” Patrick Coyle, managing partner and vice president of operations for NGS, said. “We come back truly inspired, with ideas we can implement to improve our offerings to customers throughout the coming year.”

But SEMA isn’t all work. It wouldn’t be Vegas without a little time set aside for (industry-related) play. SEMA is known for its celebrity appearances, and 3M alone will be bringing along favorites from the Discovery Channel, including Chip Foose from “Overhaulin’” and Charley Hutton and K.C. Mathieu from “Fast N Loud”. Rutledge Wood from the History Channel’s “Top Gear” and “Lost in Transmission” will also be in attendance. VIP customer appreciation parties also come with the territory for companies like NGS.

NGS Named "UBER" of Window Film Industry

NGS Named “UBER” of Window Film Industry

National Glazing Solutions, the nationwide leader in window film solutions and installation, has been ranked again in the top window film dealers in the United States. The rankings were published in Window Film Magazine in September 2015 and NGS was ranked across all categories.

This is not the first time that NGS has been ranked in the top window film dealers in the United States. In September 2013 NGS also was also featured in the rankings as the number 1 commercial window film dealer in the United States. This time around, the firm was ranked number 1 for leanest operation.

Because of the success NGS has enjoyed, Window Film Magazine published an article alongside its rankings calling the company the “Uber of Window Film”  READ STORY HERE.  This comparison was drawn because of the incredibly successful way in which the company has implemented such a lean operation. The lean operation NGS has managed to implement is very similar to the taxi firm who have found worldwide success using subcontractors.

This business model has helped NGS to bring in $375,000 in sales per employee, over $100,000 per employee more than second place. The article paid tribute to the sophisticated infrastructure which allows the company to manage up to 50 installations a day, every day.

“But being the third-ranked top-selling (and leanest) film installation company in the U.S. isn’t just because of its sub-contractors,” said Window Film Magazine. “NGS also has a sophisticated infrastructure in place to manage a high volume of jobs.”

The infrastructure NGS has in place was put to good use recently, when they installed film on 1,500 banks from Maine to Miami in just one month. This demonstrates what a great infrastructure the company has to enable them to operate successfully from coast to coast.

NGS have many successes to shout about at the moment:

-The company has a bright future ahead with projected revenue up by 25% to $6 million in 2015

Multiple high profile corporate headquarter projects underway around the USA with new national accounts coming onboard every quarter

-In February this year NGS was recognized as Solar Gard’s “Panorama Dealer of the Year 2014”.

-NGS has also developed a proprietary anti-intrusion system designed for retail called Tri-Shield. A series of videos displaying the power of this system in action are available on the website.

– Industry leading education and training to establish modeling and installation standards

-NGS is also one of only a handful of window film companies to have been awarded a GSA contract.

-Uniquely, NGS is the only window film contractor in the United States to have in-house engineering for modeling buildings.

With all of this in mind, the future looks bright for NGS. James Beale, Managing Partner & VP of Sales said, “The company has the right resources and is focused on the right things. That makes all the difference in the world.”

National Glazing Solutions, LLC, is recognized as a nationwide leader in solar, security, specialty, and printed film solutions since 2009. They aim to provide quality installation services which meet their clients’ budget and project objectives.
