Gilman Brothers Named North American Distributor of Foamalux

The Gilman Brothers Company and Brett Martin have recently entered into a distribution agreement in which Gilman Brothers will be the exclusive North American distributor for Brett Martin’s Foamalux line of PVC board products. Gilman will initially be stocking Foamalux White and Foamalux Xtra matte in 3mm, 5mm and 6mm thicknesses. Foamalux Ultra gloss, as well as a selection of Foamalux Colour boards (including red, blue and yellow), will be available by special order. Foamalux boards will be shipped 10 sheets per carton, in a choice of 4x8-foot or 5x10-foot sizes. Bulk orders are also available.

According to the companies, balanced double-sided printing capabilities are a unique feature of Foamalux that affords versatile and creative display solutions for producers and their clients. Foamalux PVC boards are available with protective film on both sides to protect the printing surfaces during storage and handling.

Foamalux White is a printable PVC board that offers smooth, flat printing surfaces with an optimal, bright white color balance and resistance to yellowing from UV exposure. According to Brett Martin, Foamalux White has been extremely popular with digital and screen printers across Europe due to its durability and consistent color reproduction qualities.

Made from 80% recycled content, Foamalux Xtra is a high-quality, environmentally conscious, PVC board for printing, mounting, routing and engraving applications. It features a black core and is available in all black, or with one-sided or double-sided, bright white, PVC, printing surfaces.

“Foamalux is a leading brand in Europe and we are looking forward to bringing these boards to customers in North America through this partnership. The Gilman Brothers Company is dedicated to developing our product range to offer the best quality, service and value. The addition of Foamalux PVC boards to our catalog supports this goal,” comments Cyrus Gilman, Vice President, The Gilman Brothers Company.

“I am delighted with the Gilman Brothers Company partnership,” adds Duncan Smith, Sales Director, Brett Martin Plastic Sheets. “Foamalux offers a wide variety of foam PVC to choose from, allowing users to design and deliver more innovative sign and display solutions than ever before. We are pleased that Gilman Brothers will be providing their expertise and support in the North American marketplace.”
