Dealers and Distributors

Our weekly roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from Brite Group LLC and Caframo.

Brite Group LLC of Rochester, N.Y., was named a U.S. and Canadian distributor for Permanon Products.

Permanon Supershine, made in Germany, is designed to preserve new or freshly restored gelcoat, paint and all non-porous surfaces. The product is sold exclusively to professionals, not consumers.

One application gives a full season of "pride-generating brilliant gloss and protection" versus the 30-day protection provided by traditional wax/polish methods, according to John Coleman, president of the Brite Group.
