Rising Corporation in Bangkok, Thailand and Vatek Corporation in South Korea recently joined the IceTech family of dedicated, experienced and world class distributors.
The dry ice blasting market is growing rapidly in Asia. The automotive industry, one of the biggest customer groups of dry ice technology, is expanding very fast in South-East Asia, which attracts automotive manufacturers and related industries, who are producing parts and components. The sales growth of passenger cars is expected to grow by more than 10% over the next 3 years according to Asia Motor Business. The largest vehicle markets in the region are currently China, followed by Japan, India, South Korea, Indonesia and Thailand, where the growth is expected to continue. The production of vehicles is not only attract the auto makers, but also manufacturers of components, tires, interior etc. from other countries in Europe and the USA.
IceTech is following this development carefully. "We are already supplying our dry ice blasting equipment to a large number of automotive component manufacturers, and the demand is continuously increasing. Therefore it is important for us to be present and close to these industries"- says Henning Lyager, who is responsible for IceTech's activities in Asia. "We are already well represented in Japan, India and China and recently we started co-operating with new distributors in Thailand and South Korea. We are going to strengthen our position in these countries even more in the future and that requires a strong network of local distributors." - says Henning Lyager.
Rising Corporation in Bangkok, Thailand joined the IceTech network in May this year. "After investigating the market, we see a lot of potential business for dry ice blasting equipment in Thailand. We are very proud and pleased to be appointed as the sole IceTech distributor for Thailand. We strongly and confidently believe that, with close cooperation with IceTech, we can develop the Thai market to its potentials in a very near future." - says Davis C., partner of Rising Corporation. "After receiving our first dry ice blasting machine, the Elite 20 ¾", we are impressed by the outstanding features and robust design compared to other brands."- he says.
Vatek Corporation started representing IceTech in South Korea in June 2015. After several demos made with the new Evolution Line dry ice blasting machines they are about to finalize few prospective agreements. "We had been looking for a supplier of high end blasters for some time - a supplier who could meet our high standards. IceTech is matching our criteria" - says BS Lee, Sales Director of Vatek. "I am sure, that IceTech and Vatek can build a very successful future together and we are looking forward to the close cooperation" - says Taeun Chang, the President & CEO.
Dry ice blasting equipment is used by the automotive manufacturers to clean parts before they are painted or before assembly, and to clean hot tire or component molds in operation. Dry ice as a cleaning media is very efficient for these applications because it is non-abrasive, completely dry and the waste to be handled in the process is less than traditional cleaning methods.
