One of the very first entrants into the window film industry, Madico, Inc. has been a leader in innovation for more than 50 years. Along the way, the company has introduced transformative technology to the mass market including anti-scratch coatings, bomb blast mitigation systems, and most recently, antimicrobial material that could help turn the tide in a global pandemic. 

Madico’s Neutralux film can be applied to a variety of surfaces including glass to inhibit microbe and bacterial growth. The film can be used in public places including medical facilities, banks, public transportation systems, grocery stores, and fitness clubs, among others.

As a member of NFRC since 2008, Madico, Inc., based in Tampa Bay, Florida, manufactures and distributes a range of materials including window film, coatings, and laminates.

NFRC sat down with Lauren Messing, Marketing Communications Manager, to learn more about the company, their involvement with NFRC, and the exciting work that they are doing.

What about your company are you most proud of?

I am proud of our quick transition into producing Safe-Gard® face shields in response to the recent global health pandemic. We also donated numerous supplies to local organizations in need. Additionally, the company has done a great job of keeping its employees working and safe during these challenging times.

What projects are most exciting?

Our SafetyShield film and attachment system projects are the most notable as they often involve embassies and prestigious government buildings.

The products are sold through Madico SafetyShield Premier Partners, a global network of factory-trained and certified, consulting dealers who specify, contract, and install customized solutions worldwide. Premier Partners can identify the best system for a building as well as provide peace of mind that the property and its occupants are better protected from natural disasters, terrorism, and industrial accidents.

Does your company participate in community service programs?

Madico’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee coordinates numerous community service programs and donation opportunities throughout the year for the company. In the past year, Madico has donated to and participated in:

  • Pinellas Park Recreation Center and food bank
  • Community Action Stops Abuse (CASA)
  • Walk to End Alzheimer Foundation

Madico celebrated the opening of its new world headquarters in Pinellas Park, Florida on Feb. 13, 2020 with a Grand Opening celebration. Madico’s new showroom has interactive displays and visitors were able to watch product installation demonstrations.

 

What type of sustainability efforts has Madico implemented?

Madico has set goals to reduce electrical use, hazardous waste, and municipal waste by 1% annually. In addition to these environmental goals, Madico works extensively with its customers in research and development efforts to produce environmentally friendly products derived from sustainable resources. One recent example of this is Rollens Professional Products collaboration efforts with the use of Madico’s VueTek Green biodegradable films for use in disposable protective eyewear products.

How can NFRC better serve your company needs?

I would encourage NFRC to provide more training sessions within the Retailer Program. Our sales team benefit from these training sessions to learn more about NFRC, how the ratings are used throughout the industry, and how to support the inclusion of window films as part of the NFRC-rated products.

The more that the NFRC is promoted, the more value the ratings hold. With our sales team communicating to our customers what the performance values truly mean, dealers can purchase and install the right product for a specific location. I believe the Retailer Program will be a success and help our team at Madico.
