Pelican Reef Wicker, manufacturer and distributor of high-quality casual furnishings since 1983, partnered with Panama Jack, in 2011, to be its outdoorfurniture supplier. This year, it will introduce two new collections at the ICFA Preview Show™(formerly Casual Pre- Market) in Chicago, Illinois, in July.
Allen Calzadilla, president of Pelican Reef Wicker, says, “The past five months have been sensational, with the introduction of Panama Jack’s Island Breeze collection. We are so excited to be able to give our existing and new dealers a chance to touch and feel the new Leeward Islands collection and get a peek at the upcoming St. Bart’s collection.”
Mayleen Chadwick, vice president of sales, helped design the Panama Jack Leeward Islands outdoor collection. She says, “The Leeward Islands collection has incorporated high-quality teak with woven Viro fiber to refresh the look of traditional teak patio furniture in an entirely new style and direction.”
The St. Bart’s collection is made of extruded, powder-coated aluminum woven with a brown pine fiber. The St. Bart’s and Island Breeze collections can be mixed for container buyers. With the warehoused inventory of Panama Jack Outdoor, anyone can get products placed on the retail sales floor immediately.
In addition to the Panama Jack merchandise, Pelican Reef Wicker offers an entire indoor- and outdoor-furniture lineup (as part of a quick-ship program) from its Florida distribution center, along with direct container inventory ready for immediate
