We look for distribution partners who provide true service excellence, not simply warehouse ability

Intent on extending its global presence and better serving existing customers, General Plastics Manufacturing Company today announced that it is seeking new distribution partners to represent its products in Latin America. In particular, it is looking for distributors focused on marketing its high-density polyurethane LAST-A-FOAM® materials for specific markets:

  •     Composite core – Aerospace and high-tech manufacturing
  •     Core, tooling and modeling boards and blocks – Prototyping and design modeling
  •     Machinable, high-temperature boards – Tooling and molds
  •     Wood-alternative foams – Outdoor and 3-D signage, display manufacturing
  •     Thermal column-bearing and floor reinforcement blocks – cold storage construction

Emphasis on product synergy and service excellence
Key criteria for prospective distribution partners include an outside sales force; a limited number of product lines that are complementary to high-density polyurethane foam; a proven sales track record; plus inventory and logistics capabilities. Distributors must also have good relationships with the customers who ultimately use the company’s products.

“We look for distribution partners who provide true service excellence, not simply warehouse ability,” said Brian Sweeney, Director of Sales for General Plastics. “As an extension of our company, we count on our valued distributors to know their markets, as well as the ins and outs of our products, so they can solve their customers’ challenges.”

Advantages of aligning with General Plastics
The company’s Latin American expansion plans provide distributors with the opportunity to represent a well-respected innovator in the plastics and composite core industries. Its high-quality, time-tested LAST-A-FOAM® products are renowned for outstanding performance, uniform consistency and certified conformance to specification. Standing behind its products is a 70-year-old company that invests in enduring relationships with its customers and distributor partners. Well-matched distributors also benefit from a chemistry-based company that is committed to continuous improvement and innovation.

“In addition to solid demand for our extensive portfolio of LAST-A-FOAM® products, our distributors can expect interest already building for General Plastics’ next-generation lightweight foams,” Sweeney added.
