VIGLACERA Introduces DFI Nanocoating in Vietnam on its Sanitary Ware Line
(Nanowerk News) Diamon-Fusion International, Inc. (DFI Nanotechnology), global developer and exclusive licensor of patented hydrophobic nanotechnologies, announced today the launching of DFI’s nano-coating by Viglacera, a highly reputable and one of the largest sanitary ware producers in South East Asia. The well publicized national launch event took place last month in Hanoi, Vietnam, and was attended by governmental officials as well. In addition, this event marks the FIRST introduction of Nanotechnology into commercial manufacturing of sanitary ware in Vietnam.
Since 1974, Viglacera Corporation has continuously expanded its business, diversified its products, and increased its investment in modern equipment, improving product quality and gradually mastering world-wide advanced technologies in the field of building materials production. With a steady annual growth rate of 30% in recent years, Viglacera has expanded its market segments and distribution channels to become the leading group in trade and production of building materials in Vietnam, comprising more than 30 subsidiaries and a staff of 18,000 employees.
“In the face of the weakened economy, Viglacera has chosen to seize the opportunity to improve our business and product offerings. Our newly designed, elegant line of sanitary-ware reflects this decision and has excited our customers with many new innovations. Our relationship with DFI and Diamon-Fusion® nanotechnology allows us to offer a truly superior product in appearance and function and we look forward to expanding our offerings as increasing consumer demand drives the sales of this truly remarkable new high quality product line”, stated Mr. Nguyen Van Ly, General Director of Viglacera Trading Joint Stock Company.
Michael Gailey of Paradigm Network, LTD, and Ngo To Giao, CEO of GmG Co, LTD, DFI’s Exclusive Licensee in Vietnam, further explained: “We're very excited to do business with Viglacera. The DFI nanotechnology flagship coating on Viglacera sanitary-ware is a very good match. In addition to the convenience of the easy-clean attributes of DFI, we note that the ultra smooth surface and resistance to staining and lime-scale build up leaves no place for germs to hide, making Viglacera sanitary-ware more hygienic. Also, the lustrous gloss of the product after a DFI application noticeably enhances its appearance, adding to the luxurious, high-tech look and feel of Viglacera's DFI enhanced product line”.
Guillermo Seta, Executive Director of DFI Global Operations, said: “This new alliance with Viglacera marks a significant global growth strategy and tangible progress towards our expansion goals with the South East Asian markets. With the multiple business opportunities this new partnership presents, we are very pleased to have this alliance with such a reputable firm that shares our innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.”
