Hong Kong International Building and Decoration Materials & Hardware Fair, October 2012

On Saturday 27 October the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong in a special report, reported;

 Hong Kong International Building and Decoration “Taking part in the trade fair for the first time is Chemical Specialties (booth no 8-J05) from New Zealand, which makes two-pack polyester based putties that are used to repair wood, metal, ceramic, fibreglass and concrete. General Manager Phil Breytenbach says the company is poised for growth after exporting to Australia for many years.

We believe there are no direct comparable products available elsewhere in the world. This is the first time we are exhibiting in Asia. We have chosen the HKTDC Hong Kong International Building and Decoration Materials & Hardware Fair, because of its reputation to bring together world class manufacturers and reliable distributors. {We hope} to secure distributors to retailers in Asia with whom we can develop the market,” he says.

The company’s display concentrates on Turbo Builders Bog, a wood repairer, and Newtech Repairer, a strong metallized repairer for mending metal and concrete. The product comes in two parts – the putty and a hardener which is mixed with the putty to make it cure. Both can then be shaped, machines, nailed, screwed, sawed and painted – similar to the original part which has been repaired in a very economical way”

“Subsequent to the exhibition Chemical Specialties Ltd. has appointed the Hong Kong and China based companies in the “Top Group” group of companies under the competent leadership of Mr. Wilson Lau as our distributor. A follow up visit to Hong Kong has since taken place with on the spot product training by Mr. Graham Wigg; our Melbourne based International Sales and Marketing Manager, and his wife Christine Wigg. The Chemical Specialties strategy is to always provide excellent backup service to our valued customers when ever and where ever they may need it”.
