A Timely Training Event for Madico’s SafetyShield Premier Partners

In light of tragedies occurring in Boston, MA, and West, TX last month in which explosions caused loss of life, injury, and damage to property, Madico’s SafetyShield Premier Partners (MSPP) training event took on additional significance.

Specially-selected partners and customers from around the world gathered at our St.Petersburg manufacturing facility for a tour, and at the Tradewinds Island Beach Resort in St. Pete, April 30 to May 3, for training on Madico’s SafetyShield products. SafetyShield window film and anchoring systems are designed to mitigate damage caused by shattering glass in any disaster, either natural or man-made.

 

News coverage of MSPP training

Aside from the coincidental timing of our MSPP training, held subsequent to the Boston Marathon bombing and the Texas fertilizer plant explosion, the tragedies served to underscore the importance of building safety and security, and brought on a heightened interest in glass breakage and mitigation solutions. Tampa Bay-area TV station WFLA aired this news story on the MSPP training event:

Madico Safetyshield Premier Partner Training 2013

No nation in the world is immune to the threat of hurricanes, earthquakes, or a terrorist bombing, and Madico’s guest list for the MSPP training reflected the global nature of the hazards posed by shattering glass. The Premier Partners who joined us in St. Petersburg hailed from Romania, Cameroon, Egypt, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Singapore, and the United States. And counter-terrorism expert Simon Trundle, a frequent consultant to United Kingdom government agencies both before and after terror attacks, was on hand for a Wednesday morning presentation on bomb blast mitigation.

In an age when senseless bombings and natural disasters combine to pose ever-increasing risk to people and property, Madico Window Films is proud to offer the SafetyShield solution as a way to help lessen the damage these events inflict. We thank the SafetyShield Premier Partners for their attendance and their interest in partnering with Madico in the effort to reduce the damage caused by shattering glass.
