Tepromark, a staple in the American flooring and matting industry for more than 40 years, was formerly a distributor of Plastex's matting and flooring products. After the recent death of Tepromark's owner, Robert J. Morris, Plastex purchased the company's matting products. Plastex has relocated Tepromark International's stock holdings to its Fort Payne, Ala., manufacturing facility, and would be pleased to help direct Tepromark's customers to other Master Distributers in the United States. "Since being founded in 1971, Tepromark has been a Master Distributor of Plastex products," said David O'Sullivan, Plastex managing director. "We chose to acquire the company following the sad death of owner Robert Morris to ensure continuity of supply from one of our major stocking distributors. Our philosophy of working with distributors is still foremost and we look forward to transitioning all the end users to new master distributors best suited to service them." Plastex will service all existing and new customer inquiries for the matting ranges, including Teproflow, Teprohold and Gridlock, initially from its manufacturing facility in Alabama. With the acquisition, Tepromark's Teproflow will become Plastex's Heronrib, Hollowgrip will become Floorline and Teprohold will become Vynagrip. With 50 years in the manufacturing industry, Plastex is a well-established, global business specializing in the design and production of a wide range of matting products, combining good looks, exceptional quality and outstanding performance. Originating in the UK in 1962 as a general plastic extrusion manufacturer, the company expanded into the United States with Plastex Matting in 1997.
