A lovely day at the Lowry
Amari recently hosted two Open Day events in Manchester. The first, which was held in the city’s glamorous Lowry Hotel was designed to mark the launch of the new Greencast range of 100 percent recycled cast acrylic sheets.
Available in a complete range of clears, opals, colours and speciality grades, Greencast, which is manufactured exclusively for Amari Plastics by Madraperla SPA in Italy, looks, performs and lasts as long as standard virgin acrylics and is available in 3mm to 20mm thicknesses and in sheet sizes measuring 3050mm x 2030mm or 2030mm x 1520mm.
Peter Hemming, Manager of Amari Plastic’s Manchester Service Centre, said: “Greencast changes the game in the cast acrylic marketplace, as its outstanding green credentials offer users a genuine eco-friendly alternative to virgin sheet.”
Amari Plastics also offer a Greencast colour matching service and specials on request.
Visitors to the event also saw the stunning new Illuminati range of decorative composite sheets, which are manufactured by sandwiching strips of polycarbonate tube between cast acrylic outer skins to provide a unique bubble effect that comes alive under lighting, making it a perfect choice for ultra-creative interiors.
Also on show was HiGloss, a range of acrylic sheets with a highly reflective, deep lacquer effect finish that can be used to craft all kinds of furniture and fittings, as was amply illustrated by the colourful HiGloss tabletops that have been incorporated into one of the Lowry’s most sumptuous suites.
The second event was a special ‘red carpet’ day for customers to celebrate the opening of Amari’s new Manchester Trade Shop, which is the first in the UK and provides the perfect showcase for the Amari Building Products range of sheet products, laminates, wall and floor tiles and other building products, as well as providing a trade counter for Amari Plastics sign and display products.
This impressive new facility has been built almost entirely from materials sold through Amari Plastics, thus making it a ‘living’ demonstration area, as well as providing conventional product displays and a trade counter.
Visitors to the shop can see everything from multiwall polycarbonate conservatory glazing to the latest LED lighting solutions, all under one roof.
For the open day, a marquee was erected adjacent to the Trade Shop, where Amari Plastics’ key suppliers, including 3A Composites, Rochling, Madreperla, Bayer, Astari, Evonik and others presented their products to customers. Also in attendance was Amari Plastic’s sister company GPT, which took the opportunity to display its range of wide format printers and provided personalised printed iPhone covers for visitors, using photos supplied before the show.
The event was a huge success and attracted a large number of the Amari Plastics Centre’s customers, from all over the North of England.
