Long Island City, NY, February 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- E&T Plastics, a leading distributor and manufacturer of custom plastic components, will be showcasing two additions to its product line – premium aluminum composite panels and Designboard by Vycom – at GlobalShop in Las Vegas, Nevada, February 29 - March 2. This is the first time that E&T Plastics will be exhibiting at GlobalShop, the world’s largest annual event for store design, visual merchandising and shopper marketing.
Both new offerings will help designers of retail displays and store fixtures create exciting and unique displays. Aluminum composite panels (ACP) are a strong and lightweight material made of a high-density polyethylene center core sandwiched between two aluminum sheets. Easy to fabricate, fold and form, ACP is ideal for making signs, trade show exhibits and point-of-purchase displays. Composed of maintenance-free HDPE, Designboard by Vycom is an excellent alternative to wood and metal for indoor and outdoor signs and displays and comes in a wide range of colors and textures.
Retail point-of-purchase displays and store fixtures are a new focus for E&T Plastics, a company that was founded in 1946 and has grown steadily over the years. In addition to the ACP and Designboard, the company offers a large selection of plastic sheets
and related items for the retail design industry, including ACRYLITE®, LuciteLuxTM, OPTIX® mirror, Markrolon® polycarbonate and PVC foam.
“Our customers are always looking for new ways to design and build their products and they rely on us for having the latest materials,” said Michael A. Singer, vice president of manufacturing for E&T Plastics. “They also demand fast turnaround and competitive prices, which we can deliver via our eight conveniently-located warehouse and fabricating facilities and a multi-million dollar inventory. And through our new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Teterboro, New Jersey, equipped with five multi-headed CNC routers with tool-changing capabilities and two high speed laser cutters, we can offer the industry unmatched capacity and unrivaled quality.”
