MCD Completes First Stage of Process which will Double Manufacturing Capacity

MCD Completes First Stage of Process which will
Double Manufacturing Capacity

McKinney, TX – In July, 2010 MCD Innovations moved its corporate and manufacturing headquarters to a new 9.6-acre campus in McKinney, TX. Now, just one and a half years later, due to high demand for its unique products, the company is expanding yet again. The first stage of the planned expansion that will end up doubling the production capacity for MCD shades was recently completed.

With this first expansion stage, MCD increased their in-house machine shop area and added several new state-of-the-art pieces of equipment including a 4th-axis CNC milling machine. MCD also enhanced their 24-hour-a-day, seven-days-a-week automated testing stations, which utilize computers and PLC controls to ensure that the highest level of performance possible is built into every motorized shade produced by MCD. Further, the Company enlarged their fabrication department and added several new pieces of equipment and applicable personnel to accommodate the increased demand for the installation of products at their headquarters in McKinney.

The engineering department of MCD utilizes state-of-the-art SolidWorks 3-D Design software in the development of new products. The engineering group also utilizes advanced, space-age 3-D Printing to prototype and prove new concepts before moving to hard tooling.

MCD Shades have been selected for inclusion as Original Equipment (OEM) in over 24 major brands of RVs in keeping with their position as the industry leader in roller shade systems. “We are dedicated to maintaining this leadership by using the latest technology to manufacture the best shade systems available anywhere, all produced in the USA, not imported. When the current expansion is completed, we will be in position to be one of the largest, if not the largest, roller shade manufacturers in the entire world. We will be positioned to continue to meet the ever increasing demand from OEMs, dealers, and individuals, as well as new markets,” said Travis Townsley, Senior RV Market Manager.

“I am a firm believer in the ingenuity of American workers and the ability of American companies to compete with oversees manufacturing companies,” said company CEO Dave Townsley. “At MCD, we are committed to the ‘Made in USA’ philosophy. Our research and innovation team is continually developing new products and even better manufacturing processes for our MCD Shades. I believe in continuing to raise the bar and am constantly challenging our dedicated employees. This ensures that MCD produces the very best products possible every day. This new expansion will allow our team to design, prototype and build more and more exciting, new shade systems right here in McKinney, Texas, USA.”

MCD Innovations has been engineering and producing an array of industry-leading sun protection products since 2003 in their state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in McKinney, TX. All MCD products are proudly manufactured in the USA and always have been. The Company supplies a wide range of innovative products to numerous RV OEMs as well as an ever-growing number of Dealers and RV owners throughout the USA and Canada. MCD also supplies an array of unique energy-saving and merchandising shade products to the residential and commercial markets. For example, MCD Shades are found in over 8,000 Dunkin Donuts locations as well as in a number of other nationally-known restaurant chains.
