Alliance expands HzO’s manufacturing capacity in China, extends reach
in toys, consumer electronics
DRAPER, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
HzO, Inc. (www.hzo.com),
the leader in next-generation liquid protection for electronics, has
gained a new applications partner in China through a recent agreement
with Tsuen Lee. A major manufacturer in the Shenzhen area, Tsuen Lee
partners with leaders of the toy and consumer electronics industries
along with major research institutions in Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Macau.
“As a manufacturer that puts heavy emphasis on exceptional quality
standards, Tsuen Lee has been very successful at identifying partners
with the same high-quality expectations,” said Dr. Cheung Kwong Ming,
Founder and Management Director at Tsuen Lee. “Consumers continue to
drive demand for next generation device capabilities, and we believe
that HzO’s liquid protection technology and state of the art
manufacturing solutions fall directly in line with the Tsuen Lee’s
vision of the future.”
This February, Tsuen Lee will install its first high volume coating
application machine for HzO’s proprietary WaterBlock technology.
WaterBlock is a thin film surface coating applied using a chemical vapor
deposition process. Unlike any other protective technology currently
available, HzO coatings seal vital electronic components that are often
compromised and corroded by accidental or persistent exposure to
moisture, including submersion in a wide range of liquids, protecting
products from the inside out.
“With proven production capabilities in toys and consumer electronics,
Tsuen Lee represents significant opportunity for showcasing
top-of-the-line device protection across industries,” says Sergio
Leveratto, chief sales and marketing officer at HzO. “We’re pleased with
Tsuen Lee’s strong interest in HzO’s proprietary technology, and we look
forward to adding value for Tsuen Lee’s end users.”
The new partnership with Tsuen Lee builds on HzO’s growing presence in
China. In late 2013, HzO expanded its international operations with two
new locations in the country. Executive offices were opened in Shenzhen,
paving the way for new and stronger business partnerships in the heart
of the world’s electronic device manufacturing region. In addition, a
new production facility was announced for Zhuhai and began operating at
full capacity this month, offering regional partners with an immediate
and scalable electronic device protection solution.
