3D BECOMES HORNSCHUCH’S UK AGENT


3D Laminates Ltd has been appointed the sole UK agent for all Hornschuch PVCu window and door grade foils from their Techprofil and Techform foil ranges, with effect from early January 2012.


This important strategic venture with


Konrad Hornschuch AG, will see 3D take on all responsibility for the sales and marketing of their impressive range of foils, building on their existing 7 year relationship with Hornschuch in the development of their CoolSkin™ technology for door skins.


Hornschuch has already built an impressive global reputation for their products and can now boast over 80 sales offices across several continents.


3D will harness their considerable experience of the UK market and will look to make an immediate impact.


The Techprofil range includes over 50


different finishes including white and cream, all backed with a comprehensive and extensive 10 year warranty and can be used on standard foil lamination machinery. With one dominant player supplying window grade foils in the UK, 3D believe that they have a product range that can directly compete and that includes the enhanced Cool Colors range for extremes in temperature.


Mark Lofthouse, managing director of 3D Laminates comments: “We’ve built an impressive reputation for our CoolSkin sheets and are looking to expand our long-
