LexJet and Tara Materials Partner on Print Canvas Line


Sarasota, FL—Digital imaging equipment and supplies provider LexJet and fabric maker Tara Materials, of Lawrenceville, Georgia, entered into a partnership whereby LexJet is the exclusive distributor of Tara Materials’ Fredrix Print Canvas line.    

The partnership allows Tara Materials to concentrate on its U.S.-based manufacturing and better serve Fredrix Print Canvas customers with LexJet’s customer service and nationwide distribution.

“The basis of our relationship is our expertise in manufacturing joining LexJet’s expertise in sales, customer service and distribution,” said Mike Ecker, general manager, Tara Materials Inc. “It’s really a perfect fit. We can focus on our core abilities, allowing us to make product improvements, while LexJet’s customer focus and ability to deliver product in one day will be a huge benefit to our customers. You put those together and you've got one dynamic partnership.”

The exclusive distribution agreement became effective April 3, 2013, so that all Fredrix Print Canvas is now stocked throughout LexJet’s nationwide distribution center network. The agreement covers customers in the U.S. and Canada, who will now work with LexJet directly for all their canvas and canvas finishing needs.

In addition, the two companies announced they will begin jointly developing new inkjet canvas products—compatible with aqueous, solvent, low-solvent, UV-curable and latex inks—to address every potential application and market need for their customers. lexjet.com
