Three Window Tinting Companies Make the Inc. 5000August 19th, 2015 by Casey Flores
When it comes to the fastest-growing private companies in America, three window film installation companies crack the top 5,000.
Sykesville, Md.-based Absolute Perfection, Cincinatti-based Window Genie, which provides window cleaning and tinting services, and Boca Raton, Fla.-based Tint World both made the Inc. 5000 list this year.
No. 2042: Absolute Perfection
For the first time ever, Sykesville, Md.-based Absolute Perfection made the list. Owned by Window Film magazine blogger Bill Valway, the company experienced 193-percent growth over three years, adding 13 jobs, now employing 18 people. The company houses three divisions including window tinting, applied graphics and media and specializes in website design, video production and online marketing, according to Inc. Its 2014 revenue was $2.3 million, according to Valway.
No. 2872: Tint World
This was Tint World’s fourth time making the list once in each of the last four years. After ranking at No. 4722 in 2011, No. 4568 in 2012 and No. 4722 in 2013, the company shot up the rankings and is now No. 2872, having experienced a 124 percent growth in three years and a 2014 revenue of $9.4 million. The 33-year-old automotive accessory franchise added 89 jobs and now employs 160 people.
“Being named to the Inc. 5000 list once again is truly a testament to the Tint World model and the enormous amount of work that has been accomplished system-wide to ensure the brand continues to make significant strides,” says Charles J. Bonfiglio, CEO. “Being named on the list for the fourth year can be attributed to the hard work that’s been put in by numerous individuals with a common goal.”
No. 3721: Window Genie
Ranking No. 3721 was Window Genie, marking the second year the company made the list. The franchise, founded in 1998, saw a growth rate of 83 percent and added four jobs in the last year. According to Inc., It now employs eight people and brought in $3 million in revenue in 2014. Last year, its rank was No. 2241.
“We’re very proud to make the list two years in a row,” says Rik Nonelle, company founder and CEO. “We’re committed to improving ourselves every year, focusing on healthy growth strategies that will ensure success throughout the entire Window Genie system.”
Communications manager Erin McDermott says the company’s individual units have been thriving as well.
“Our unit sales were up 40 percent in the past year,” she says. “We hope to experience continued growth through our new partnership with 3M.”
The company is also looking into offering holiday lighting as a new revenue stream for the slow winter season when window tinting and cleaning demand drops.
