Companies will also jointly develop new inkjet canvas products.
LexJet has entered into a partnership with Tara Materials to become the exclusive distributor of the latter’s Fredrix Print Canvas line in the US and Canada.
In addition, the two companies will begin jointly developing new inkjet canvas products – compatible with aqueous, solvent, low-solvent, UV-curable, and latex inks – to address potential applications and markets for their customers, ranging from fine-art reproduction to interior décor, the companies report.
“The basis of our relationship is our expertise in manufacturing, joining LexJet's expertise in sales, customer service, and distribution," says Mike Ecker, general manager, Tara Materials. "It's really a perfect fit. We can focus on our core abilities, allowing us to make product improvements, while LexJet's customer focus and ability to deliver product in one day will be a huge benefit to our customers. You put those together and you've got one dynamic partnership."
All Fredrix Print Canvas will be stocked throughout LexJet's nationwide distribution center network.
