Rapid expansion of Chinese manufacturing in a variety of industries has led to a boom for some U.S. companies including Zyvax, which recently established a distribution channel through a partnership with FRP Services, one of the nation's largest distributors.
FRP Services, a well-known industrial distributor throughout the region, has a network of distribution to China's energy, sporting goods, marine and automotive industries. The Chinese manufacturing sector is undergoing major upgrades along with expansion, moving from the industrial age to the technology age and incorporating leading edge systems and processes into the manufacturing infrastructure. Production using composites, reinforced plastics and other space-age materials is commonplace in the Chinese Republic, and many of the final products are ultimately bound for U.S. and other foreign markets.
As one of the world's leading producers of mould release, surface preparation and cleaning products, Zyvax was already integrated with Chinese manufacturers. The company's line of products, including the newly introduced zero-pollution Nano line, has application in the energy, sporting goods, marine, automotive and aviation industries - China's most robust manufacturing sectors.
