Primatech Partners with Virginia Abrasives for Rental Market Distribution

July 30, 2013

Primatech, a leading floor fastener and equipment manufacturer in Canada, has formed an exclusive partner arrangement with Virginia Abrasives to distribute to all levels of the rental market, including independent rental businesses, national accounts and master distributors.  "Adding a fastener line along with supplying some of the best flooring tools in the industry will only further support our one-stop shop approach, making it easy for rental stores to get what they want, when they want it," said Spencer Perkins, Virginia Abrasives president. 

Richard Wheeler, a long-time fixture in the floor fastener industry will head up the program at Virginia Abrasives.

"Rental independents and national accounts haven't been receiving the service and product support they need from other large suppliers,” Wheeler said. “Partnering high-quality tools and fasteners from Primatech with a service-oriented company like Virginia Abrasives brings together the best of both worlds for rental dealers." 

Fasteners and equipment will be available with the same-day complete shipping and free freight that is available with the rest of Virginia Abrasives’ offering. 

Headquartered in Petersburg, Va., Virginia Abrasives is a worldwide supplier of coated, bonded, diamond and non-woven abrasive products to the construction and industrial markets. For more information, visit
