Verotapes is the trading name of Ian McQueen. Ian acts as the sole agent in the UK and Ireland for Soprad srl, a privately owned manufacturer of temporary surface protection products. For over 10 years’ Ian worked as the product manager/sales specialist for protection films at Scapa Tapes, a major multi-national. Over the next 15 years Ian worked for only two private companies as the sales manager selling surface protection film and specialist adhesive products.
In 2009 Ian set up Verotapes, and customers can take advantage of over 30 years’ experience that Ian has to offer when choosing surface protection film for their application. Since the advent of the internet, we have seen a vast increase in the number of companies offering to supply protection films without really understanding the market and the products customers require. When deciding to use protection films, customers need to ensure they get the best information possible and make careful consideration when choosing a supplier. After discussions with Ian, customers can then buy direct from the factory, or from one of our approved UK stockists and converters.
Our Partner: SO.PR.AD SRL
Verotapes offers products into the UK and Ireland direct from our European partners or via our UK stockists and converters.
SOPRAD Srl is a large manufacturer and supplier of temporary surface protection films. Soprad is one of only a small handful of European manufacturers who can coat the films in solvent, water, and rubber-based adhesive. They can supply protection films up to 2320mm wide on rolls of up to 3000 metres. Soprad has 40 years of experience producing and supplying adhesive protective films to some of the biggest names in the industry. Soprad has ISO 9001:2000 approval. Since March 2020, Pregis Polymask acquired Soprad srl. Its robust European customer base provides an ideal foundation from which to expand the availability of our existing temporary adhesive film products,” said Kevin Baudhuin, president and chief executive officer. “The acquisition strengthens Pregis’ position as a leading global producer of surface protection films.” Additionally, the integration of Soprad products means that Pregis PolyMask will now be able to expand its product range to include solvent-rubber and solvent-acrylic based product solutions to the global marketplace. These solutions provide immediate market opportunities, particularly for the metals and automotive market segments.
