Drytac, an international manufacturer of adhesive-coated products, has appointed ND Graphics (based in Concord, Ontario) as its exclusive national branded distributor for Canada. ND Graphics will be responsible for business growth in the sign and large-format markets. As a result of its 2013 acquisition of a second manufacturing and coating operation in Toronto, Drytac has experienced greater demand for product distribution and the need for stronger brand awareness. Additionally, the company has become increasingly focused on expanding the markets to which it sells self-adhesive products – such as labels and tags used in packaging, automotive and industrial applications.
The need for Drytac to partner with a market-leading distributor who could support existing business and develop new business in the sign and imaging markets became a priority. The company added that “ND Graphics has a long-standing presence in Canada and is well known within these industries, making it an excellent choice for improving the overall experience for Drytac customers.”
With 10 stocking locations across Canada and an outside sales staff of more than 30, ND Graphics “is equipped to provide cost-effective solutions and technical support to customers seeking a one-stop shopping experience.” It stocks approximately 4,000 industry-leading products, including equipment and print materials, and has customer service and technical support teams to assist with client inquiries.
“It’s imperative that Drytac focus on manufacturing and custom coating in Canada. By partnering with ND Graphics, we will be able to shift our attention to industrial and non-graphic markets that offer untapped potential for our business,” added Mike Wildbore, Vice President of Sales for Drytac Canada.
