Madico Window Films – St. Petersburg, Florida Facility Improvements

Madico Window Films has recently invested several million dollars in upgrades and process improvements to our manufacturing facility in St. Petersburg, Florida. The goal of this capital investment is to improve energy conservation, increase process efficiencies and ultimately achieve our goal to produce the best quality window films in the industry.

Window Film Magazine recently recognized our efforts and dedicated an article to highlighting our facility’s upgrades for their readers.

Excerpt taken from Window Film Magazine:

“Madico Window Films is committed to quality improvements and plans to continue additional upgrades in the near future,” says Shawn Kitchell, vice president of manufacturing for Madico. “We are currently striving to achieve the Class 1000 clean room standards for our manufacturing lines as well as installing automated conveying systems for material transport throughout our facility.  As is evident by the recent investment in our facility, we take producing the highest quality products very seriously and will never stop looking for new ways to improve.”

Facility improvements that will be completed during the renovation include the installation of temperature-controlled bulk storage tanks for adhesives and solvents, new high energy mixing equipment, an upgraded clean room environment, an upgraded on-line optical scanner, a new hard coat thickness measurement system, installation of on-line color and visible light transmission (VLT) monitoring equipment, upgrades to slitting machines, updates to drying and pollution abatement systems, new equipment  including a gas chromatograph to ensure proper adhesive curing and a particle analyzer to prevent contamination, and a total overhaul of the raw material receiving and storage facility including a cantilever racking system which reduces the risk of product contamination.
