VANCOUVER -- Innovative Manufacturing Inc. is now a master distributor of a large selection of Milesi Italian wood coatings, according to a joint announcement released by the companies. The new distribution agreement marks the first time these two companies have partnered to offer a line of Italian technology, wood finishing products to professional woodworkers, cabinetmakers, and millwork producers.

Innovative Manufacturing serves customers in Vancouver, the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and the Interior of British Columbia, offering technical support, custom color matching, and a team of finishing specialists.

The Milesi line includes two-component polyurethanes, polyesters, water-based interior and exterior finishes, natural look finishes, high gloss wet look finishes, UV, stains, and more.

The new partnership agreement pairs two companies with long traditions of providing finishing products to the woodworking industry. Innovative Manufacturing Inc. was established in 1948 as Insulmastic Building Products, to provide industrial wood coatings for the kitchen cabinet market, as well as waterproofing and corrosion protection products for the construction and industrial markets.

Milesi is a brand of the IVM Group, one of the largest wood coatings manufactures in Europe. See
