FlexScreen is an industry disruptor and the world's first and only flexible window screen. Founded in 2015 by Inventor and CEO, Joe Altieri, FlexScreen was created to solve all of the issues with the century-old technology of aluminum window screens. No aluminum, no paint, no hardware, and no hassle. Just flex the high-performance, PVC coated spring steel frame, slide it into the window screen pocket (where it will virtually disappear), and enjoy the uninterrupted view. FlexScreen is innovative, effortless, durable, and beautiful.
Since its introduction into the marketplace, FlexScreen has gained international attention and earned multiple awards, drawing interest and eventual partnerships with powerhouse entities, including Global 500 company, Saint Gobain, whose ADFORS division has exclusive rights in the dot.com space, and American television personality, inventor, and entrepreneur, Lori Greiner (Shark Tank investor and "Queen of QVC), who is now an equity partner. Now a thriving multi-million-dollar company, FlexScreen currently has 5 manufacturing plants in the US and Canada.
As more and more window dealers and manufacturers continue to make FlexScreen standard in some or all of their products, FlexScreen is well on its way to revolutionizing the window industry.
