The Coldwell Family (2010-Present)
When Don and Terry Coldwell purchased the business they had the company registered, and the name changed to Island Solar Films Ltd. at that time.
The Coldwell’s continue to build on the business reputation that Mary had created and developed with her customer base. Once Don and Terry felt that Island Solar Films Ltd had built a nice smooth flowing business they started looking for other offerings that could compliment the film business. They had been asked a number of times why they didn’t offer window coverings as well, as they were already treating the windows with film products.
So in 2014 Terry started selling from a home base business window coverings that would fit the commercial and residential market place. As time passed the window covering sales increased and was doing well as an addition to Island Solar Films Ltd.
Then in 2015 the Coldwell’s started looking for other products that would work as part of their marketing package to offer their customer base. They decided to pursue the Retractable Screen Door Market and reached an agreement to become a distributor for Mirage Screen Systems. This has proved to be a very good business partnership as well and now as of October 2018 Island Solar Films has become the Costco dealer for the Mirage products from their Nanaimo Store location.
In 2018 Don and Terry decided to separate the product lines under a new identity, so they formed a new company Paradise Shades and Blinds Ltd. In July of 2018 Paradise moved from a home base company to a store front located at 504-6581 Aulds Road in Nanaimo BC. Today Don and Terry run both Island Solar Films and Paradise Shades and Blinds Ltd from that location.
Island Solar Films Ltd is now back to as it originally was started as a Film Product company, handling all film application products that cover the market place needs from Victoria to Port Hardy and West to Ucluelet and Tofino.
The company has grown from a little home based business to a healthy stand alone company, still under the ownership of Don and Terry Coldwell. They look forward to helping all of their customers new and old with the best products and service in the industry.
