“Instagram and Pinterest are flooded with examples!”, says Frank Rademaker, owner of Mr. Boat. “Tables with an epoxy finish. Many clients in the furniture business were looking for a high-quality epoxy with which they can coat their tables. The most commonly used epoxy is quite expensive. So, I checked in with Marc, my contact at De Monchy International, and asked him if he could help me supply a kind of epoxy which is easy to use and more affordable.”
“De Monchy International has all the knowledge I need to supplement my business,” Frank Rademaker, Owner of Mr. Boat.
Marc de Heer, sales manager at De Monchy International: “We have been working with Mr. Boat for quite a couple of years now. It is my job to deliver my clients the right products. Is there anything new on the market? If so, I determine for which of my clients this could be interesting. I notify them of new trends. Most of our clients use epoxy as a final product or as a semi-finished product. The latter case is applicable to Mr. Boat. They were looking for the right materials so they could respond to a new trend. When Frank asked me to help, our team took action immediately.“
