Leading Australian supplier to the Graphic Display and large format digital printing market, Starleaton Digital Solutions, has officially sealed its distribution deal with Alcan Composites; the graphic display materials division of the $25 billion Alcan corporation.

Alcan Composite’s Director of Sales & Marketing for Asia Pacific region David Meacham (pictured L) signed and shook on the agreement with Starleaton’s Ben Eaton (pictured R) in Shanghai last week in the presence of Alcan’s Australasian Sales Manager, Campbell Hughes, who says:

"There were several key reasons that contributed significantly towards the appointment of Starleaton as one of only two national distributors for Alcan Composites in the sign and display industry.  Starleaton's  long and successful track record in managing premium brands, market focus and deep inventory commitment will both strengthen Alcan Composites' position as global leader in the manufacture of high-performance substrates, and reinforce Starleaton's position as a leading national supplier to the sign, display and design industry."

Starleaton’s General Manager Ben Eaton comments: “Alcan's High Performance Substrates will cement SDS as the one-stop shop for businesses looking for fully-supported premium brands in the sign, display and architectural design industry. Alcan Composites offer a legendary array of quality brands, including: Fome-Cor® Sintra® Gatorfoam® ForeX® and Kapa®  - all iconic brands familiar to professionals dealing in all forms of graphic displays.”

With the huge increase in the use of flatbed direct digital printing for rigid displays, added to traditional uses such as screen printing, mounted cut vinyl and die-cutting; the Alcan Composites range is experiencing rapidly growing demand which Starleaton’s nationwide sales and distribution channels will fulfill.

Applications for the range of Alcan Composites include POP (point-of-purchase) Display, Exhibition, Shopping Mall and Kiosk Graphics, Framing, Architectural modeling, Architectural panels, interior and exterior Signage.

The lightweight and versatile properties of Alcan Composite materials are achieved by combining Polystyrene, PVC, Polyethylene, Polyurethane cores with wood-fibre, plastic or aluminium facers to yield totally stay-flat sheets in a variety of thicknesses, sizes and surfaces. The range of over twenty sheet types ensures the right material for the job is available.

“Flatbed UV digital printers are proliferating all over the country,” says Eaton, “and we aim to service them with readily-available printable sheets at all price-points from the low-cost Foam-Core to the durable Forex & Kapa product lines. Screen printers, Fabricators, Modelers, Designers and Framers will also appreciate our pricing and supply chain efficiency.”

“The addition of Alcan Composites to our range of aqueous and solvent roll media for digital inkjet printing is a fantastic coup for us and we aim to reward Alcan’s faith in Starleaton with growing sales and excellent customer support. As with the rest of our range, we will hold appropriate stocks in our warehouses for fast order fulfillment,” concluded Eaton.
