We are widely known and well regarded in a variety of markets that range from day to day sales of PC sheet to high end projects that involve safety and security i.e. we’re prominent suppliers in specialist market segments such as ballistics, bomb blast mitigation, prisons and so on.
We’ve recently been appointed the National Australian distributor for Palram branded AR & BR products and as such we’re very keen to expand our presence in the Australian market place.
As part of our arrangements with Palram and our Distribution Agreement we are also heavily involved and carry Palram stocks of GP and UV Polycarbonate sheet
Palram is one of the leading extruders of Polycarbonate sheet products in the world today and it is a highly regarded brand and as such we are extremely proud of our association.
Athlone Extrusions picked up the ‘Medium Size Exporter of the Year’ award at the Irish Exporters Organisation’s (IEA) annual awards ceremony held in Dublin recently.
The firm, a leading manufacturer of thermoplastic sheet and film products, was recognised for its business growth, both in new and developing markets, through a combination of new products and new routes to market.
Recent new products include Durogloss, a high-gloss scratch resistant PMMA-ABS foil which is laminated to MDF board and used in high-end furniture applications.
Athlone commercial manager Adrian Dickson said: “Equally important to new products are the markets – market presence and routes to market.
“Athlone Extrusions fully appreciates that local markets need local people to grow sales. We combine a direct sales force with offices in Ireland, the UK, The Netherlands, complimented by a network of agents and distributors.”
