Outwater Plastics Industries has bagged the U.S. distributorship for closet products manufactured by Canadian-based Vanguard Plastics. Both residential and commercial needs for organization component products and storage are addressed by Vanguard Plastics’ extensive product range.
Shelf support systems from Vanguard Plastics are considered to be superior to metal shelf support systems. A single pair of shelf support from Vanguard Plastics is designed to withstand over 300 lbs. These products are stronger yet lighter than their metal counterparts owing to their advanced geometric design.
While metal shelf support systems are low on aesthetic appeal and difficult to install, the shelf support systems from Vanguard Plastics are designed in such a way that they can be set up easily without the need for gluing and painting and score high on aesthetic appeal as the accompanying hardware necessary for installation such as fasteners are well concealed. The plastic shelf supports are economical in comparison to not just metal shelf supports but also 1” x 3” pine strapping and wood cleats.
Outwater Plastics will function as a full stocking distributor of Vanguard Plastics’ products through its sales and distribution offices in Arizona and New Jersey. This arrangement is expected to reduce shipping costs and improve lead time.
