SAN ANTONIO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–XPEL Technologies Corp. (TSXV:DAP.U) has announced its acquisition of
Pro-Tect Film Distributing, Inc., a provider of installation services
for automotive paint protection and window film and commercial and
residential window film, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In conjunction with the Pro-Tect acquisition, XPEL is also announcing
the restructuring of its licensing agreement with Proform Protective
Films, Inc, which has operated as a separate library of paint protection
film patterns within the Company’s Design Access Program (DAP). With the
restructuring, the Proform library will become fully integrated as part
of XPEL’s DAP offering. Integrating the Proform library will add more
high-end vehicle designs into the DAP and add additional pattern
coverage not previously offered, such as motorcycles, while increasing
efficiency by eliminating duplicate designs between the two libraries.
Michael Mayall, Pro-Tect’s CEO and President will join XPEL and head up
a variety of new initiatives.
Ryan Pape, President and Chief Executive Officer of XPEL, commented,
“We’re excited to welcome Mike Mayall and the Pro-Tect team, who enjoy a
strong reputation in the Las Vegas market for providing outstanding
service. We look forward to combining our existing industry leading
automotive paint protection products with the customer centric focus and
service model that Mike and his team are known for, to deliver better
value for both new and existing customers in the Las Vegas area.
Furthermore, our integration of the Proform database will build on the
work Proform founders Mike Mayall and Rob Freeman have done with Proform
pattern library and enable us to build a broader and deeper pattern
database for our customers globally.”
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
