Window Genie Enters Partnership with Industry Giant

To Penetrate Residential Market, 3M will Supply Window Genie with Envision™ Line of Residential Window Film

March 16, 2015 // // Cincinnati - Window Genie has reached an agreement with 3M Company to provide a residential window film solution as part of the company’s lauded Envision™ line of films. The partnership will provide Window Genie, a franchise chain with over 200 units that provides window cleaning and window tinting to homes in more than 24 states, an opportunity to service over 125,000 residential customers with window film that reduces fading, heat and glare and can help lower utility bills.

Beginning April 1, Window Genie franchisees will offer the residential Envision™ film options that include clear view, glare control, sun block and shade offerings. The film options range from 70%-40% for total solar energy rejection (TSER), a quality which stands to save homeowners significantly on their utility bills.

Window Genie’s partnership with 3M is the result of two years of discussions between the companies.

“We approached 3M two years ago actively seeking the partnership,” said Ken Fisk, vice president of operations for Window Genie. “We believe Window Genie’s reputation as an established residential home service business put us in a great position to illustrate to 3M the value of forming a partnership with us. Through two years of conversations pertaining to the opportunity 3M had to penetrate the residential market through a partnership with Window Genie, a company with over 125,000 residential customers in our database, both parties agreed it was mutually beneficial to move forward.”

“The partnership is mutually beneficial,” said Fisk. “While Window Genie is able to further customer satisfaction by providing a highly recognizable brand of top quality window film, 3M is able to successfully penetrate the residential market and build brand awareness for their line of residential film among Window Genie’s customers that span over 200 markets in 24 states.”

For years 3M’s line of Envision™ Wrap Films has been an industry favorite, earning commendations for its high performance, sustainable materials and comprehensive warranty.

Founded in 1994 by Rik Nonelle, Window Genie recently appeared on Inc. Magazine’s 2014 Inc. 5000 list and on Entrepreneur Magazine’s list of top 100 home-based franchises. The partnership stands to benefit Window Genie franchisees every bit as it will benefit customers, said Fisk.

“We look forward to improved training and support by providing one brand of film to our franchise partners,” said Fisk. “We believe it will help streamline systems and enable growth with a more successful method of coaching throughout the entire Window Genie system.”
