About MCD, factory entrance

Everything you need to know about MCD Innovations a Division of Airxcel Inc. The company was founded in May of 2003 by Dave and Carla Townsley beginning business as a manufacturer of upscale solar window shades.

From the Townsley’s original vision, MCD has evolved and successfully grown into the largest RV roller shade manufacturer in the world. MCD’s natural evolution saw MCD bring the remarkable shades system into the commercial shades market. Combining MCD’s proprietary Clearview™ solar screen material with a special, leading-edge printing process has created a revolutionary commercial roller shades system - ENRG+Impact. Utilizing MCD developed commercial hardware, it created an unbeatable system. These commercial roller shades help save energy while at the same time providing additional marketing opportunities, creating roller shades that pay-back.

MCD Innovations' first facility was housed in a 7,500 sq. ft. building and employed a total of six people. A short two years later MCD relocated to a 25,000 sq. ft. facility and grew to 45 employees. This move launched the introduction of state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, which enabled the company to introduce and produce high-quality, innovative roller shades. In 2010, due to staggering product acceptance, MCD expanded again, moving to a 9.6-acre campus with 56,000 sq. ft. of climate-controlled manufacturing and office space along with a groundbreaking Research and Innovation division, extensive machine shop capabilities utilizing computer-controlled equipment, a complete fabrication department, 24 hours a day testing processes, and the highest level quality control standards applied to every shade manufactured by MCD.

The core business values of creating the best commercial roller shades available, all made in the USA, and by listening to and working hand-in-hand with commercial brands has resulted in nationwide brand recognition. MCD currently works with commercial accounts including Dunkin Donuts, Advance Auto Parts, Dickey’s Barbeque, STIHL and more.
