Brushfoil expands to South America
Brushfoil LLC, of Guilford, CT, USA, has expanded its presence into South America with the appointment of Nelxon Technical Films of Araras, Brazil, as its distributor. Nelxon distributes flexible films for industrial, packaging and graphic applications.
Brushfoil manufactures brushed films and papers that enhance the appearance of consumer products in North America and Europe. “We are flattered to be in such excellent company with Nelxon’s other suppliers,” says Jim Parker, a Brushfoil partner. “Our European expansion in 2005 has met with outstanding success, and we’re eager to bring our variety of brushed films to the exciting packaging markets of South America.”
In addition to Brushfoil, Nelxon’s product portfolio includes polyester and BOPP films from Toray Industries, cellophane and special BOPP from Innovia Films, and high-purity aluminum for metalizing from Manufacturas Irular. Since its founding in 1992, Nelxon has successfully penetrated the South America markets with PET and BOPP films, cellophane, evaporation boats, and high purity aluminum for metalizing, packaging, electrical insulation, industrial, and graphic arts markets.
