The best in billiards teams up with The Best in Billiards

Libertyville, IL – January 6, 2012 – Simonis Cloth and Olhausen Billiards team up in an exclusive arrangement to offer special stain-resistant cloth through Olhausen dealers. The new product, Simonis 760 SR will be offered through Olhausen to its dealer base beginning in January. The new product will be available in twelve popular colors and will ship prepackaged and cut to size.

 "It made sense to work with Olhausen to bring a differentiated product for their offering" stated Ivan Lee, President of Iwan Simonis, Inc., the North American distributor for Iwan Simonis S.A. of Belgium, "We have had the ability to offer stain-resistant cloth for several years, and Olhausen provided a perfect opportunity to bring it to market."

The new product is a hybrid of the world famous Simonis 760 cloth that has been treated during the manufacturing process with a non-petrochemical based stain inhibitor. "Part of the appeal for Olhausen is that Simonis has great brand recognition and brand loyalty worldwide", stated Donny Olhausen the President of Olhausen Billiards, "We were also happy to find that Simonis has a non-petrochemical based treatment for their cloth, it will bring more peace-of-mind to homeowners who bring the product into their homes and allow a stain-resistant cloth Simonis option for commercial recoveries as well." Both Simonis and Olhausen are committed to making our industry more environmentally friendly and this product definitely is the right product to continue with that philosophy.
