Team

Who We Are

We are an outdoor shading company located in Plano, TX. As a Hunter Douglas owned and operated business we have a strong commitment to delivering high-quality motorized screens along with exceptional customer service. At the core of our business philosophy is a relentless dedication to doing business the right way. We firmly believe in providing our customers not only superior quality motorized shades, but also a seamless experience that surpasses their expectations.

With our innovative designs and cutting-edge technology, we aim to create shade solutions that not only provide comfort and protection from the elements, but also add style and sophistication to any outdoor environment. Whether it's a residential patio or a commercial outdoor space, our motorized screens are tailored to meet the unique needs and preferences of each individual customer.

Furthermore, we take immense pride in upholding the vision and values of our late founder, Glenn Messner, who played a pivotal role in establishing our company. His passion for outdoor living spaces and dedication to delivering exceptional products and services continue to inspire us today. While Glenn may have passed away in November 2015, his spirit and legacy live on in every motorized patio screen we manufacture.
