3M and National Glass Service Group Form an Alliance

Dublin, OH, July 16, 2009 --(PR.com)-- 3M and National Glass Service Group (NGSG) announce the formation of an exclusive alliance to market window film solutions to large national retail chains. Through this agreement, NGSG will use 3M products and dealers exclusively while 3M will concurrently pursue all national retail accounts exclusively through NGSG. Both NGSG and 3M believe that this relationship will allow both parties to concentrate on their strengths in order to provide the highest quality products available with unparalleled education and servicing of these retail clients.

Patric Fransko, Senior VP of Operations at NGSG is excited about the potential that this alliance with 3M represents. “After coming to NGSG, I have spent the past year with our retail clients trying to understand their needs and expectations. It quickly became clear that confidence in the product supplied, and the company supplying that product, were their primary concerns. We had built systems to ensure the logistics of getting jobs completed efficiently and using a 3M product gave the client an immediate comfort regarding the quality and engineering of the products being used.”

NGSG owner Haytham Elzayn noted, “This was not an easy decision for us initially. We were being courted by multiple window film manufacturers to form a similar alliance, but the synergy was just not there. Initially, I was convinced that NGSG was stronger by remaining independent of any particular manufacturer. However, after meeting with 3M and gauging clients’ responses to the strength of the 3M brand and product offering, our decision became clear.”

Charles Calisto, National Sales Manager of 3M’s Renewable Energy Division, expressed similar enthusiasm regarding the new alliance. “We are very excited about working with NGSG. They have quickly made a name for themselves in the retail chain segment and we feel confident that the 3M / NGSG team will educate retailers about window film solutions, provide them with the best products available and implement chosen solutions in the most efficient manner.”

Details of the final agreement are confidential, but the alliance is already paying dividends as NGSG and 3M are working on numerous large projects around the country with major names in the retail industry.

National Glass Service Group specializes in glass related film solutions designed to assist large retail chains with energy savings, loss prevention, glass related designs and graffiti mitigation systems.
