Polyfab USA now American-owned
April 11, 2016,
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. - Barry Jamieson, director of shade product producer Polyfab Australia, announced that its U.S. Polyfab division was sold to the American management of that division. Jamieson established the American division in 2008 (previously their fabric was sold through a local distributor). The new ownership has more than 35 years of U.S. industry experience.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth since 2008,” said Steve Morenberg, new managing director of Polyfab USA, LLC. “By focusing solely on the Americas, we think we can tap into that growth and be even more reflective of the trends and preferences of customers in North and South America. There is an increase of awareness in this hemisphere for the benefits of shade sails and structures, and the customer who wants to protect her family and property with a quality shade fabric will appreciate the fact that the materials are coming from an American company.”
