3M appoints Amari Plastics as UK distributor

3M has appointed Amari Plastics as a UK distributor of its commercial graphic and architectural film range - the first time in over 20 years that 3M has appointed a new distributor in the UK in this sector.

Five new product ranges are available for order from this week through Amari Plastics and its specialist businesses Amari Digital Supplies (ADS) and Graphic Printing Technologies (GPT) – they include varieties of Scotchcal Graphic Film, Controltac Graphic Film and Envision Print Wrap Film.

Amari believes the partnership provides it with significant growth opportunities in markets not previously reached by its current product offering. The distribution deal brings the addition of cast vinyl’s such as the Scotchcal 100 series, the Envision range of non-PVC films for the environmentally conscious customer and architectural films such as DI-NOC Architectural Finishes, which can be used by shop fitters, for commercial fit outs and retail design companies.

Jamie Manifold, director of supplier relations at Amari Plastics, said: "This is a huge endorsement for Amari. Soon we’ll be taking these great new products to our customers across the country with local stock availability at up to 16 locations nationwide, with same day/next day delivery when required. A range of products such as Cast Acrylics, Aluminium Composites and Foam PVC are also readily available at the same time, so the customer can get the full range of products for each job from one supplier.”

- In a separate move 3M has added 11 new colours to its Wrap Film 1380 range and 10 new colours to its Wrap Film Series 1080 family.
