Wave Polarizer to Glare Guard
Glare Guard was originally an unbranded small visor business out of Long Island, New York. The owner was very passionate about the visor business & was certain that it is a product that could reach millions of people and help them on their daily drive or long trips. Considering Wave Polarizer was the source of polarized film it would seem likely that they would purchase the business.
Now, Glare Guard is a subsidiary of Wave Polarizer LLC and is located in Easton, Pennsylvania. All manufacturing for the visors is handled by Wave Polarizer and all aspects of Sales & Marketing are handled by 3D Mention Media, LLC.
The Story Behind Wave Polarizer
International Polarizer was a large polarized film manufacturer located in Boston Massachusetts. Over the years they were bought and sold a few times and eventually was purchased by Wave Polarizer. Many of the International Polarizer employees are still involved with Wave Polarizer which adds many years of polarizing expertise to the operation. We are one of only four manufacturers of polarized film and the ONLY one outside of the Far East. Wave Polarizer is currently the only manufacturer of custom polarizer in the world.
Who is behind Wave Polarizer & Glare Guard?
Mark Smith is the owner & operator of Wave Polarizer. Wave is only one of many companies that he is involved with. Mark was born and raised in Laurel, Montana and out of the University of Montana, got into the movie industry. After years of working for the same employer, Mark decided to go out on his own and start his own company, Big Sky Industries. Big Sky would go on to make theater equipment for big theaters such as Regal and AMC. Because the movie industry converted from a film base to a digital base, Big Sky Industries was forced to close & that’s when the move into the polarized film industry started.
Dane Smith is Mark’s son and has a Marketing degree from the Smeal School of Business at Penn State University. Much of his focus has been on learning Search Engine Optimization along with all aspects of Digital Marketing. He handles all aspects of Marketing and operates a few other websites.
