“I just love working with companies who are constantly improving and producing innovative products,” says Barry Berman, who represents Grupo Alvic in the UK.

Grupo Alvic is Spain’s’ largest producer of panel components and finished doors and has several factories based in the south of Spain and another factory in the Barcelona area.

The flagship product is the Luxe range and this can be supplied either in full size boards 2750 x 1220 x 18mm MDF or cut to size and edged either with a PU glue or laser technology.

Luxe is the result of applying the very latest UV lacquering technology combined with the latest generation of materials which allows the creation of modern and elegant combinations for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, shopfitting and architectural specifications.

One of the secrets of Luxe is the total control of the manufacturing process – from the impregnation of the raw papers to the pressing of the boards which allows the added result of being able to offer a matching reverse which is so often requested by the market when selling top quality products.

The physical characteristics of Luxe are impressive, especially the scratch resistance and surface quality and there is a collection of finishes ranging from solid colours in gloss and matt, gloss and matt metallics, and gloss woodgrains and abstract designs.

Panelco, part of the Meyer Timber Group, is the exclusive distributor of the Luxe boards and is now stocking 28 different finishes and offers a nationwide service which is hard to beat. Ordering by 5pm guarantees next day delivery on orders of any quantity.

In concluding, Barry Berman says: “In January at the IMM in Cologne there were more matt doors on show than gloss – and the new Zenit collection in the Luxe range has taken this surface to a new level. I have never felt such a silky and luxurious surface. Having a product like this to show customers makes me feel like a dog with… two bones!”
