GOING FURTHER. GROWING FASTER.
More customers, in more markets and more countries are now using Metamark products than at any time since Metamark was founded. Thanks to the efforts of Shaun Hobson, Metamark’s international VP, and his commercial and technical team, Metamark has a network of highly qualified partners in over forty countries supplying and supporting Metamark products.
The network is growing and so is the portfolio of products that Metamark supplies it as Shaun Hobson explains. “Metamark is one of the sign, display and allied industries’ best known and most highly regarded materials brands and its influence is now world-wide. There’s a simple formula that underpins Metamark, its products’ and their continuing success.
“Metamark product and its business ethics are centred around ‘performance and trust.’ Working with our partners in international markets, we get products into the hands of producers that perform as promoted, that fit the needs of the job at hand, and that are absolutely consistent over time. They do all this at a price points that make jobs more affordable for the end user and more profitable for the producer and so make the economics more attractive than those available with any other premium materials brand.
“Producers and converters around the world really like our products and they’re delighted that they can buy them from very highly qualified international partners. We’re investing significantly in resources that help support those partners. Our Metamark ELITE system is a great example of that. It’s an online resource that embodies educational and promotion resources and that functions as a communication backbone which unites our all wherever in the world its members may be. It’s among our missions as a materials manufacturer to make Metamark available locally, worldwide. Having Metamark ELITE, makes that job an easier one for all involved and we developed it in consultation with our network.
“Our partner network has a profound influence on the product we develop too. Rather than design a material in a flask in lab in the UK, our development agenda is one that begins with our partners’ customers. Working with them, and doing a lot of listening, is what ensures that our products reflect needs and are not just exercises in technical indulgence. That’s a huge differentiator.
“Developing, and working with our international partner network, continues to be an exciting and very rewarding professional experience for me and the team I have around me. Seeing the successes building and strategic partners become even stronger through our products is energising.
“There are still white spaces on the map we’ll soon be colouring Metamark-Purple and product opportunities are in evidence too. I’d say that the outlook at Metamark is bright to say the least. I’m speaking for the whole network I know when I say the future is looking great. Thanks to our distributor partners, our end-user customers , our raw material suppliers and our employees for making this an enjoyable and successful journey , take care , and stay safe!”
