Durham, NC -- Paint sundry supplier Trimaco, LLC recently announced that it had acquired the assets of Loparex, Inc.'s Specialty Product operating unit, which markets paint masking products under the brand name Easy Mask®.

Management Continuity

Scott Revord, who served as Director of Sales and Marketing for the Loparex Specialty Product unit, joins Trimaco as Technical Sales Director. "Scott's extensive knowledge of the Easy Mask brand and experience with channel sales will be a great asset not only to Trimaco and the professional painters we serve," says Trimaco Principal Vito Ancona, "but will also benefit the retailers that are part of our distribution network."

"I'm pleased to be part of the growing Trimaco team," says Revord, "and delighted that the Easy Mask brand is backed by the resources of a company that's known for its focus on customer satisfaction and for its understanding of retail distribution channels."

Expanding the Masking Product Spectrum

Easy Mask brand products now available through Trimaco include familiar names such as Easy Mask® Painting Tape and KleenEdge® Perfect Edge™ Painting Tape, plus a variety of other specialty painting tapes as well as pre-taped plastic drop cloths and drywall repair patches. These items both complement and supplement Trimaco's current line of masking papers, masking films and masking application products, giving painting professionals a broader spectrum of paint sundry solutions with convenient, time-saving "one-stop-shopping" accessibility.
