“We are pleased to join forces with Brushfoil and to add its products to our portfolio,” says Donnie Thompson, president and CEO of Interfilm. “The two partners of Brushfoil, Jim Parker and Charlie Yetka, have developed an impressive array of exciting capabilities based on proprietary technology. These Brushfoil products have met with excellent acceptance in the market, and we look forward to working with Jim and Charlie to ensure a seamless transition, assuring our customers that they can look forward to receiving the same level of service and quality that they have enjoyed in the past.”
