Posted on January 8th, 2014 by hzodev
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.
