Meet Ashley and Griffin Mann
We are here to serve our community, the Midland area with MADE IN THE SHADE Blinds & More bringing high quality window shades, excellent installation at affordable prices directly to your door. Our team has extensive training and experience in guiding our clients with integrity, respect and the highest level of customer service.
Griffin, an Austin native, earned his BS in Geology from Texas Christian University and a MS in Geology from the University of Texas Arlington. He has weathered the ups and downs in the Oil & Gas industry for the past five years before opening MITS. Ashley graduated from the University of North Texas and has been in the service industry for her entire career. With a passion for serving others as Director of senior living communities in Dallas/Ft Worth, Midland, and now the Midland, Ashley brings that same passion to MITS.
Recently married in Estes Park, both are outdoor enthusiasts, avid skiers and hikers with a love for their families and their newborn son, Grayson. During the recent Pandemic, Griffin was able to focus on his entrepreneurial and business aspirations using extensive research and training to redirect his career. Both were drawn to MITS because of the outstanding product, selection and installation process as well as the family culture and support evident among other owners. They look to better serve the Midland area.
Ashley and Griffin look forward to using their hands on home design experience to serve our Midland area community. We work with honesty and integrity to ensure a safe and convenient customer experience by meeting you in your home to provide free quotes and get to know you. Come join our family of customers and let us all work together to build beautiful communities!
Our business model is designed with our complimentary, in-home consultation in mind. We will sit down for a few minutes to talk about what you’re interested in seeing, and then bring in the samples so that you can make an informed decision. No matter your product choice, our first goal is to make certain that you are completely comfortable – and educated – with your window covering choices. What sets us apart is that every one of our highly trained, local franchisees are committed to offering you the perfect solution for your windows.
We are proud to stand by our five-point value system, part of our commitment to offer genuine value with every single product we sell:
- Quality: Every single product we sell is made of top-quality materials by the best and most experienced window covering companies in the world. We sell the best because they make the best.
- Customization: Just because every window needs to be covered doesn’t mean you should do what everyone else does. Make each window yours – dare to be different. We make it easy!
- Service: We back up every sale with service. Our goal is to provide stellar care after the sale because every client is a story, and we want your story to be as amazing as your window coverings.
- Warranty: Everything we sell is covered by our manufacturers’ generous warranties. Most of our products carry a limited lifetime warranty. So, not only will we back up our own sales with service down the road, we also work with our trusted vendor partners who back up everything they manufacture. This is peace of mind like no other.
- Price: We all know that price doesn’t always equal value, but when we back it up with the best products and the best warranties in the business, we’re offering great value at a great price. Guaranteed.
Our goal is simple: A comfortable shopping experience where you are able to make informed, educated decisions about your window fashion needs.
