Sun Fabrics Signs Sales And Distribution Agreements

Lake Worth, Fla.-based outdoor and awning fabrics manufacturer Sun Fabrics has signed sales agreements with Birmingham, Ala.-based Pinnacle Sales and Portland, Ore.-based Morgan Associates under which both companies will market Sun Fabrics' entire range of awning fabrics in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

In addition, Sun Fabrics has signed a distribution agreement with Innovative Industrial Solutions (IIS), Boynton Beach, Fla. IIS reports it can deliver orders to most U.S. states, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean islands within two to three days.

Sun Fabrics was established a little over three years ago and has two manufacturing plants in North America and South America. Its outdoor and awning fabrics feature a combination of properties including flame-retardancy (FR), anti-mold and anti-mildew properties, high ultraviolet (UV) stability, light weight and vivid colors. According to Sun Fabrics Founder and Vice President of Sales J.T. Morelli, the inherency of the properties is unique to the company's fabrics. "When you take traditional awning fabrics on the market and add FR, you either lose UV stability, or the FR that is applied to the surface washes off. In Sun Fabrics' awning fabrics, FR and UV stability are there for the life of the product."

Sun Fabrics recently began a recycling program in which its awnings may be sent back to the company and recycled to make different products.

Morelli noted that the company is working to expand its awning fabric concept into all outdoor fabrics, and also plans to begin making custom fabrics.
