and Pro Tapes/Permacel, the world's largest manufacturers of tapes for the arts & entertainment industry, have formed an alliance. Le Mark Group has become a master distributor in the UK for the Pro Tapes/Permacel range of high quality self-adhesive tapes. Pro Tapes/Permacel are globally known as the number one manufacturer of vinyl coated tapes, including the legendary Permacel 665, the world's first Gaffers tape. Extensively used for many years by leading American bands, performers and film crews working in Europe.
Le Mark also has a wide range of award-winning ‘tape based’ products and saw the benefits of offering the Pro Tapes/Permacel range through their own dealer network. Le Mark Managing Director Stuart Gibbons stated, "The alliance between our two companies is a natural and logical progression. Le Mark needed to meet customer demand for specialty products, in particular Gaffers tapes with more colour options. Incredibly the Pro-Gaffer range is available in 17 standard colors and four fluorescents. This amount of quality products & color choice has simply never been available to the UK market before. Our products and brands compliment each other so well. The Le Mark & Pro Tapes alliance ensures that there is simply no area of the global entertainment industry that is not catered for."
Le Mark looks forward to introducing the new range through their 2004 U.K.Road Show Program and at selective exhibitions in the U.K., Europe and Middle East. The first showing will be at PALME 2004 in Dubai, February 17-19, 2004
