Showroom displays feature products aimed at the truck outfitting market. Protect Your Paint PremiumShield Paint Protection Film combines an industry-first, patent pending clear coat with a tried and true aliphatic polyurethane resin. With over 30 years collectively of industry experience, our management team has devolped a product that addresses key issues previously faced by manufacturers, distributors, installers and especially the end consumers. At first, Sines saw the greatest opportunity in the application of the liner material in industrial and commercial coating applications outside of the automotive industry. "I was fascinated by the story and the versatility of the product," he says. "After doing a bit more research, I ended buying a franchise and going into the business. "Our intention wasn't to start in the truck market; our intention was to focus on the protective coating for industrial and commercial applications. But once we started spraying trucks, the customers instantly started asking for other products. That's when we realized where the real opportunity was." After quickly coming to the realization that a bright future lay in the automotive aftermarket, specifically in the truck segment, Sines and his team reorganized under the name Global Truck Outfitters. The next step: aligning with a solid distributor for the accessories that their customers often requested — ranging from mud flaps, truck caps and tonneau covers, to plows and hitch accessories and a number of other product segments. "We got set up with Blacksmith Distributing, and as we learned more about the truck accessory business, the more excited we were about our prospects," says Sines. "We still do plenty of work in non-automotive applications, but we went full force into the truck accessories business."
