Profile: HomeRun Holdings

Two and a half years ago, when Willis Mullet sold the garage-door company when he'd been president for some 30 years, he retained his research and development division. He renamed the Pensacola company HomeRun Holdings adn shifted the company's focus to his newest invention, QMotion Advanced Shading Systems. The remote-control, cordless, electronic window shade has a seven-year battery and quiet motor. It was voted best new technical innovation for 2012 by the Window Covering Manufacturers Association. Sales have been up every quarter since startup, and the workforce now totals 80. Dealer arrangements are in place to supply several European countries. And a 200-shade shipment recently left for Australia.
