Despite the Economy, a Houston Distributor Expands
March 19, 2009

Despite the sagging economy, one Houston-based distributor seized the opportunity to expand in 2009. Solar Control Film Inc (SCF), the exclusive distributor for Global Window Films in Texas and Louisiana, opened its second distribution center in St. Louis recently. The company's new location will serve the central U.S. market. The new center features 5,000 square feet of space in which to stock window film products and tools.

Phillip Hollocher, SCF's owner, has worked in the window film industry since 1996. Hollocher says he looks forward in helping dealers grow their markets by offering such services as energy audits for architectural dealers, aimed to help them differentiate themselves in the bidding process.

"I have worked in many window filim markets around the world since 1996," Hollocher says. "Including: Miami, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Africa, the Middle East, Australia and Asia. I worked in Shanghai, China, for three years developing the window film market. In Latin American and Asia I concentrated in energy conservation with window film and developing a tint shop program."

"[Hollocher] has made the jump from corporate management to entrepreneur beautifully," says Mark Bollegar, president of Market Pro Direct LLC in Oldsmar, Fla. Bollegar provides marketing services for Global Window Films on a contract basis. "He completely understands the day to day lives of his customers and caters to their needs.

His growth is spectacular and, in light of the economy, almost unbelievable. At this rate of growth, he could become Global's largest distributor in North America, and quite possibly the world."
