HVG Fabrics announces new partnership for Australian distribution of Serge Ferrari flexible composite materials

[April 13 2016 Press Release]

Leading Australian industrial products distribution business HVG has announced that its HVG Fabrics division has been appointed the new Australian distributor of Serge Ferrari flexible composite materials.

Serge Ferrari S.A, a French company, has been manufacturing superior quality products for various applications (textile architecture, solar protection, acoustic solutions, yachting, light modular structures for industry, signage industry, indoor &outdoor furniture) since being founded in 1973. Serge Ferrari has progressively built an outstanding reputation as a global leader and innovator in Australia since the early 90’S.

The new distribution arrangement is expected to commence on 1st June 2016 once stocks arrive into HVG’s Australian capital city distribution centres.

HVG will be officially launching its distribution of Serge Ferrari at the Superexpo on the Gold Coast in June.

HVG Fabrics Business Manager Daniel Gollan commented, “The synergies and culture between both companies is obvious, with both of us focusing on the same key issues - quality products, class leading marketing collateral to build brand value and a strong desire to ensure solutions ‘fit for purpose’, first time every time.

 

I can assure existing Serge Ferrari users that we won’t let you down with large local stocks, our normal high levels of customer service, an expansion of our sales force and new sampling and marketing materials being developed to support the product.”

HVG CEO Bruce Rayment said, “Serge Ferrari is a great fit for HVG. Quality products, a great brand, a good extension of our existing fabrics product portfolio and complimentary to the rest of our business.”

Hervé Trellu Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing says “Serge Ferrari’s markets and product ranges are constantly growing and we have a strong ambition to develop our presence and sales in Australia.

I trust that together with HVG we will provide our customers with a high quality product range but also with an outstanding service level to develop their business.”
