“Mohawk has been an incredible partner to many distributors and printers in the industry. They have built a strong reputation and trust amongst their customers for the value of their products and ability to deliver solutions to the print market,” states Bosy Colak, President of Kernow North America. “As they move forward into the next phase of their business, Kernow will be stepping in to continue supplying customers with the quality and service that they have relied on for years. Our goal in this transition is to make it as seamless as possible while providing customers with the same proven certified solutions they have been using for years along with new developments by Kernow Coatings.”

Kernow North America manufactures and supplies the KernowPrint® range of synthetic papers for digital printing. This portfolio of products includes a full suite of synthetic materials that provide printers with waterproof, tear-resistant, and chemical resistant printable media for use in any application where durability matters. Along with providing a variety of material options in polyester, synthetic paper, and vinyl, all KernowPrint® for dry toner materials feature Kernow’s proprietary coating formulations for OEM certified toner performance, static control, and chemical resistance. For HP Indigo presses, Kernow has developed their Cobalt Coating Technology™ that provides the optimal print surface for printing with HP Indigo LEP systems.
