MCD MARKS 8TH ANNIVERSARY
McKinney, TX - MCD Innovations marked their 8th Anniversary in business in May 2011. The company began business as Motor Coach Designs, a family-owned, family-run entity, in May 2003 in a 7,500 sq. ft. space with a total of six employees. Initially, the company specialized in producing private-label solar screens for various RV manufacturers as well as the aftermarket. Early private-label OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) name-brands included Monaco, Holiday Rambler, Safari, Beaver, Country Coach, National RV, Alpine, Travel Supreme, Blue Bird, SportsCoach, Mandalay, Newell, and American Coach.
Over the years, MCD expanded its product line to interior sunscreens. Today MCD is recognized as the developer and supplier of the popular MCD American Duo® Day/Night Roller Shade system. American Duo Shades now come direct from the factory on numerous RV brands including Winnebago, Itasca, Monaco, Newmar, Fleetwood, Carriage, New Horizons, Excel, Born Free, Coach House, Foretravel, Renegade/Kibbi, NuWa, Forest River/Coachmen, Newell, Featherlite/Amadas, DRV/Doubletree, and Phoenix among others.
MCD outgrew the first location within two years and in 2005 moved to a larger 25,000 SF building. Needing to continue to keep pace with the ever-growing demand for their products, MCD moved again in July 2010 into what is now their current location, a 9.6 acre campus 35 miles north of Dallas in McKinney, Texas, where they manufacture and supply innovative products for the RV industry as well as for the commercial and residential markets. Dave Townsley, CEO of MCD, stated, "We take great pride in the fact that all MCD products are designed, engineered, and made in the USA to exacting standards. Always have been; always will be."
Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, MCD's dedicated and skilled employees manufacture an array of unique products for not only the RV market but also for a number of well-known commercial customers such as Dunkin Donuts (almost 7,000 locations) and Dickeys BBQ. "MCD's in-house Research and Innovation group continues to develop new ground-breaking technologies. We'll be releasing an array of new, exciting, leading-edge, energy-efficient, green, world-changing products in the very near future, stay tuned," said Townsley.
