A small Dutch company sells various patented technologies and a range of products that incorporate these technologies for effective regulation (warming and cooling) of body temperature. The key markets include industrial safety, medical, sports, police/military/fire brigades, (motor)cycling, outdoor recreation as well as applications for dogs and horses. The company seeks cooperation with independent agents and medium-sized wholesalers in these markets for a distribution services agreement.
The Dutch SME was founded early 2009 and has become the world's largest manufacturer of cooling vests. The technology used by the company in fabric and garments offers various benefits for effective regulation of body temperature.
Very high body temperatures may damage the brain or other vital organs. Several factors affect the body’s ability to cool itself during extremely hot weather/environmental conditions. When the humidity is high, sweat will not evaporate as quickly, preventing the body from releasing heat quickly.
Other conditions that can limit the ability to regulate temperature include age (over 45 years), youth (age 0-4), obesity, fever, dehydration, heart disease, mental illness, poor circulation, sunburn, and prescription drug use and alcohol.
The products and technologies are used by famous athletes, F1 teams, national Football teams, MX1 Factory teams, ProCycling Teams, national Field Hockey Teams et cetera. Furthermore the company has set up OEM collaborations with well known global sports brands.
The comprehensive range of products and technologies embrace a diversity of methods for successful cooling & warming. Cooling methods include evaporative cooling, moisture free evaporative cooling, phase change cooling. Warming methods include air activated warming and battery powered heating.
Products ranges include solutions for head (cap, hat), neck (bands, shades), upper body (vests, pull over), wrists, hands (gloves) but also blankets and cushions.
The products are distributed in over 50 countries worldwide with distribution centres in the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Presently, the company has manufacturing operations in four countries, ensuring the operational flexibility to handle large, medium and small volumes, and custom orders.
Strategic partnerships with suppliers ensure the access to the best materials available.
The company is looking for independent agents and/or medium-sized wholesalers in Europe in their key markets industrial safety, medical, sports, police/military/fire brigades, (motor) cycling, outdoor recreation and dog/horse to sell their products and technologies by means of a distribution services agreement in the different European regions. The company is especially looking for smaller companies who are willing to commit to the strategic objectives of the company to enter not only the high-end segment (e.g. top sports) but also the mid-end and low-end segments in these markets.
The technology used by the company in fabric and garments offers various benefits for effective regulation of body temperature.
