High Point, NC (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
As the largest industrial lumber and plywood supplier in the Memphis, TN metro market, Interstate Plywood needed an innovative new wood coatings partner to help solidify and grow their business. After an extensive search, AkzoNobel’s Chemcraft brand rose to the top of their short list.
“We chose the Chemcraft brand because of its excellent brand recognition in the industrial sector and superior product support at the sales level,” stated Interstate Plywood Director and CEO, George Winfield. “We believe that offering the Chemcraft brand will help us develop an even closer alliance with our existing customers, and substantially increase our opportunities to expand into new markets.”
AkzoNobel could not be more pleased with the new partnership. "Interstate Plywood is a well-respected industry leader known for providing customers in western Tennessee, eastern Arkansas and northern Mississippi with top-caliber solutions since 1977,” stated AkzoNobel’s Chemcraft Business Manager, Ray Birdsall. “We are proud that they are now part of our exclusive network of knowledgeable and experienced local distributors throughout the United States and Canada.”
The new alliance between AkzoNobel and Interstate Plywood is only the beginning of what both companies see as a mutually rewarding relationship. Interstate Plywood Director and CEO, George R. Winfield said, “Now, that we’re providing our clients exceptional Chemcraft brand wood coatings, a new color room and a new color-mixing specialist, we see ourselves as the most complete wood finishing resource in the state.” AkzoNobel’s Chemcraft Business Manager, Ray Birdsall said, “We’re looking forward to providing Interstate Plywood with the level of product innovation, knowledge and service they need to maintain and grow their business. After all, when our distributors succeed, we succeed. ”
Effective immediately, Interstate Plywood is an official local distributor of the Chemcraft brand’s innovative line of wood coating products. Interstate Plywood is a leading manufacturer of hardwood plywood, lumber and moldings for furniture companies and cabinetmakers as well as millwork and fixture houses in the Memphis Metro market.
