Barrier Adds Sales Representation in the Pacific Northwest

International Barrier is proud to announce new sales representation in the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S.

James Walmsley is our new sales representative out of Cave Junction, Oregon where he runs a website and fire-retardant products distributorship under the name of Snuff-It, LLC.

Walmsely, who previously worked in line construction for a major electric utility and then a construction contractor for 22 years, started Snuff-It in 2007 to distribute fire-retardant products to the public, contractors, and fire fighting departments. His line of fire gels (Thermo-Gel) and fire-retardant vents (Brandguard vents) specifically address recent wildfires in California and along the West Coast, and Walmsley sees Blazeguard Fire-Rated Sheathing as a natural addition to his product line.

In addition to promoting Blazeguard via the website, Walmsley has been actively contacting dealers and contractors throughout Washington, Oregon, and northern California. He has also created demonstration units showing a Brandguard vent surrounded by Blazeguard Fire-Rated Sheathing -- a perfect solution for under-eave construction in California Wildfire Zones.

We look forward to working with James to promote Blazeguard throughout the Pacific Northwest.

I am quite pleased with the expansion of your distribution network and the current emphasis on exterior applications for fire-prone areas. Now IBTGF just needs to get its first international licensing deal!
