Back in 2002, Lamin-x Protective Films was founded to create an entirely new market of lens, paint, and surface protection for the automotive aftermarket products industry. I was inspired by the endurance racing industry's use of protective films to produce a bright yellow light output. From that I realized the market potential of clear and colored film covers for the automotive and motorcycle markets. We wanted to use a quality product that is thick and strong enough to protect surfaces for long distance racing, yet it needed to be transparent enough to not affect light optics. From that idea became an entire line-up of products that serve multiple, even endless purposes for many different industries.
Starting from a spare bedroom of my house then to small office areas, I bootstrapped and cold-called the path to building a new business. Through the many years of hard work and inspiration, the long-term visions have come true. Our supportive customers have allowed us to create a solid business that has been growing every year since starting. In 2010, we started manufacturing our Lamin-x brand in our new manufacturing plant here in the beautiful Georgia mountains. Now manufacturing 100% of our products here in the USA, a rare trait in the business world!
Today, our tens of thousands of satisfied customers and dealers use our protective films in endless creative ways. Either to solve unique problems or just for stylish looks. Our protective films are so versatile that you can find Lamin-x being used and sold at:
