Madico to Unveil New Florida World Headquarters
The company bought its new home in 2017 and has invested $40 million into making it its new state-of-the-art headquarters.
Tampa Bay, Florida-based Madico, manufacturers of laminating and coating solutions and window films sold into a variety of industries, announces that it will be holding a grand opening celebration at its new, quarter-million-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility in February.
In 2017, Madico purchased the manufacturing facility in Pinellas Park, which is north of its former location in St. Petersburg and is significantly larger than the combined former locations in St. Pete and Woburn, Massachusetts. Including the acquisition of the building, Madico has invested more than $40 million into the Florida site, yielding three state-of-the-art coating and laminating lines along with an advanced research center to support its growing product offering.
The company added 75 new employees in 2019 as part of its growth initiatives, and it currently employs more than 200 people.
“We’ve come a long way since Madico was founded more than a century ago,” says CEO Shawn Kitchell. “We’re looking forward to showcasing our new facility and our expanded capabilities to deliver advanced, innovative film solutions for a variety of industries. But most importantly, to celebrate the customers, dealers, partners and employees who have been the driving force behind our growth.”
Kitchell and Akihiko Ouchi, chairman and CEO of Madico’s parent company, Lintec, will kick off the grand opening celebration. In addition to window film dealers, customers, vendors and distributors, local, state and federal politicians as well as Pinellas Park Chamber and Gateway Chamber of Commerce representatives have been invited to attend. Aside from a ribbon cutting, there will be behind-the-scenes factory tours, interactive showroom displays, product demonstrations, food, entertainment and more.
The event will also feature the company’s annual awards ceremony, where it celebrates and recognizes window film dealers, distributors, customers and suppliers who, it says, “represented the Madico brand with ultimate distinction in 2019.”
In addition to its world headquarters, now in Pinellas Park, Madico operates nine service centers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
