Dealer Spotlight: Owners of Ray’s Solar Security Instilled Passion for Window Film Business in Son
(This article first appeared in the February 2018 issue of “Dealer E-News.”) Hunter Tomlin has been around window film his entire life. His father, Ray, opened Ray’s Solar Security in Green Cove Springs, Florida, 38 years ago. Today, Ray and Hunter’s mother, Jackie, run the business with help from their son.
Hunter started going on jobs with his dad when he was in elementary school and began installing film when he was in high school.
Now 20, Hunter recently relocated to Tampa, where he is studying business and entrepreneurship at the University of South Florida. There, he is planning to learn the skills he needs to continue the family business.
“Growing up around (window film), I developed a passion for window tinting, especially seeing how much potential the industry has and how much tinting work can be done,” he said. Hunter’s favorite aspect of the window tint business is sales. He’s so passionate about the industry. In fact, that he’s hoping to work for another 3M dealer while in Tampa.
In addition to introducing him to the window film business, Hunter said his parents have always been there to support him. In addition to sports, Hunter enjoys hunting, fishing and other outdoor pastimes.
