After an absence of two years, the urge to return to the manufacturing sector proved too strong for Jim Parker and Charlie Yetka, resulting in their decision to go back to producing the exquisite appearance of ‘brushed films’ once again. The result is the formation of Metal FX Films LLC, based in this central New Jersey town.
The 16,000 square-foot manufacturing facility and offices in Bridgewater is now operational and producing brushed films that, according to co-founder Charlie Yetka, “will surpass in quality and appearance anything on the market today.”
Jim and Charlie’s combined 80 years of production excellence will be linked with their on-time scheduling expertise, creativity, and an infinite commitment to unparalleled quality and customer service. The result is the re-establishment of the magic they have perfected using their experience, initially in hot stamping, then their years in the brushed films industry. The results are dramatic, eye-catching visuals that simply stand out on store shelves for a wide variety of products.
“Our intention is to return brushed films to the pinnacle of the world’s decorative, graphic films,” Jim Parker explained. “We are proud to now begin our new company with a renewed commitment to users and designers who can introduce this magnificent film to their customers knowing it is the finish to get their product noticed.”
Because of their production expertise and imagination, past and present packages such as golf ball boxes, special-edition and premium DVDs, mouthwash rinses, skin and hair care products, fragrances and shopping bags, presentation folders, CDs, gift items, makeup and perfumes, special issues of magazine covers, annual reports, POP displays, automotive interior parts, kitchen appliances, gift cards, elegant confections, and men’s and women’s toiletry cartons enjoyed significant spikes in sales by using the elegant brushed metallic look as their chosen finish.
The two partners forming the new Metal FX Films LLC have known each other since their youth, working together producing decorative graphic films almost 40 years ago.
Jim Parker is a native of New Providence, N.J., and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications from Seton Hall University in 1977. Since graduation, he has, along with Charlie, been instrumental in building and selling two businesses. Jim is married with two children and resides in Basking Ridge, N.J. His outside interests include golf and volunteer work with both the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Foundation for Diabetes Research.
Charlie Yetka was born and raised in Jersey City, N.J., and now resides in Watchung, N.J. Married with two daughters, Charlie is a veteran of 28 years in graphic films, and most recently 11 years as a partner with Jim in perfecting the art of brushed films. His hobbies include golf and reading. He also volunteers his time with breast cancer research as well as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
