Techno-Sell signs pact with UK-based Tribos

Techno-Sell (Frey), the distributor of Lamina Films, is expanding its business in Thailand with the signing of an agreement with Tribos.

Tribos is a UK-based company that produces protective coating for automotive, marine and aviation paints, as well as alloy, glass and fabric. With its sales network being set up, retailing could commence in the second quarter of this year with a sales target of at least Bt30 million in the first year.

"Apart from being specialists in Lamina Films and world-class tinted films, we are also continuing to move ahead in becoming a professional distributor in accordance with our company vision. This started with the distribution of Thule travel accessories in 2011 by using our strong sales network," Techno-Sell (Frey) managing director Channapa Saisamorn said. "Tribos is another world-class product that is well accepted by consumers, and we are glad to be appointed as their sole distributor in Thailand."

Full-scale service is expected to steam ahead within the second quarter. "We will commence full business during Q2 according to our plans, and we will market Tribos products in four main categories. The main criteria is preserving and protecting the paint for our customers' vehicles and providing warranty for products according to quality factory standards. We expect sales from Tribos products to be no less than Bt30 million during the first operating year," Channapa said.

Tribos Coatings CEO Russell Young said the business tie-up is expected to be an important step for Tribos in expanding its presence in the kingdom.

"Tribos will offer varied support to Techno-Sell in order to establish an integrated business in Thailand, whether in terms of finding the right products, training employees, technical support or others. We hope to see continuous business expansion for Tribos in Thailand under the supervision of Techno-Sell," Young said.
