Accessories produced and distributed in many forms
There is a vast array of products that can be considered accessories, and they are manufactured and distributed in many forms. Some manufacturers produce only one small product, but have done it for many decades and done it successfully. Manufacturers that produce items such as insulation board and block will produce adhesives or sealants that go along with only their products. Some distributors handle both manufacturers' accessories and produce other accessories that complement the products they distribute. There are tape manufacturers that produce tape for the auto industry, medical industry and cosmetic industry, but also produce a separate line for the mechanical and industrial insulation industry.
