Monday December 18, 2023

A Business Update from Vice President & General Manager Michel Merkx


“With the Holidays upon us, I would like to thank you, our customers, supply partners and ABI team members, for all your support to growing our business in 2023.


Although the economic and business outlook remains strained and uncertain for 2024, we at ABI/Ideal Tape, supported by great partnerships with our customers and suppliers, continue to see important and interesting opportunities in the relative short-term horizon.


We will offer new solutions for Surface Protection Films in Appliance, Metal/Coil and Automotive applications, expand our Graphics application paper and films, launch an exciting new ‘Buy America’ program for our HVAC & Insulation tapes and environmentally responsible tapes for the footwear and automotive market.


Indeed, we are ready for the New Year and to help our customers find solutions to grow, save costs, and/or become more efficient.


Contact our world-class commercial and technical teams in the USA, Belgium, Italy, Singapore, China, and South Korea with any engineering or application challenge you have, and we will be delighted to offer our expertise.


From the American Biltrite family to yours, I wish you Happy Holidays and a Healthy, Safe, and Successful New Year.

Michel Merkx”
