Structure-flex becomes 3M partner

3M, the science-based technology company, has named Structure-flex Ltd of Norfolk as a 3M Select Gold Partner.

Structure-flex, a family owned firm, has a strong presence in the commercial vehicle industry offering full vehicle and cab wraps as well as lorry curtains and other associated services. The company has been printing and installing 3M Vehicle Wrap Films for more than 20 years. 3M extended Gold Partner status to Structure-flex following a thorough audit of the processes, stock control, batch numbers, traceability and print equipment in place.

Andy Grand, graphics sales manager at Structure-flex, said, ‘We are seeing growing demand for vehicle wraps and always recommend 3M materials as our reputation for quality is important to us. We are really excited to have achieved Select Gold Partner status. This not only gives existing customers peace of mind and confidence, it is also a great asset when developing new relationships especially with global brands, an area in which we see potential growth.’

Pen Webley, marketing team leader, for 3M, said, ‘Select Gold Partner status is based on globally harmonised criteria, so that brand owners can approach a 3M Select partner anywhere in the world with complete confidence. Structure-flex is particularly strong in the commercial vehicle market, but the Gold Partner status extends to all projects that they undertake.’

Launched in 2015, 3M Select is a global programme to qualify partners according to 15 criteria, which cover equipment and quality of work. The programme in the UK and Ireland has two levels: Platinum and Gold. Currently, four companies are qualified as 3M Select Platinum Partners and eight including Structure-flex as 3M Select Gold Partners.
