Exousia Receives Import Approval from Chinese Government to Begin Shipping Coatings

Published on 2008-05-16. Author : SpecialChem

SUGAR LAND, Texas -- Exousia Advanced Materials, Inc. has announced that the company has passed its Importation Tests with the National Commodity Testing Bureau of China. Exousia has received the necessary approval and import permits to ship high-performance industrial coatings from its AEGEON Plant in Texas into the People's Republic of China. The key significance of receiving import approval is that it allows Exousia to begin fulfilling product orders and commitments to its Northern China Territory Distributor -- Northern International Group (NIG), as well as other customers and distributors.

With the import license in place Exousia can now move forward on an initial NIG order for 1,000 gallons of Exousia's Power Shield 4450V Non-Skid Industrial Coating. NIG's distribution agreement includes a commitment to purchase 205,000 gallons of Exousia's industrial coatings during the current year. Exousia estimates that these coatings will be priced in the range of $30-$50/gallon.

"Obtaining this import permit is a critical milestone in developing our presence in China," commented Mr. David Chen, Vice President of Asia Sales and Marketing. "Prior to establishing our Chinese manufacturing operations, Exousia will need to import product into the country. These permits make that possible. We are excited to be able to start actively shipping product into China."

China represents the first phase in Exousia's strategy of establishing distributorships in rapidly emerging countries that are major markets for industrial coatings. According to an independent market survey by GCiS China Services, "anti-corrosion coatings in China are a large market with significant growth providing ample opportunities for foreign coatings suppliers." The industrial coatings market in China was estimated at about 160 million gallons for 2007, with key industrial coating segments growing up to 20% annually.
