IGL Coatings has appointed its new distributor Bright One Company for Hong Kong, SAR ("IGL Hong Kong"). Through the appointment, IGL Hong Kong will be the authorised distributor for Hong Kong, distributing, promoting and building innovative and award-winning green products by IGL Coatings.
The IGL Hong Kong team comprises experienced veterans in the automotive detailing industry, distribution and wholesale industry. Morris Kwok, CEO of IGL Hong Kong, grew the company quickly, increasing its revenue and sales sharply since incorporation. Since then, the business quickly expanded to distribute automotive-related products including ceramic coatings, PPF and tint.
Kwok heard about IGL Coatings and was amazed at their high-performing green coatings. As one of the only coatings brands and companies with its graphene technology verified by an independent third party, IGL HongKong was eager to come on board.
"IGL Coatings is the obvious choice for us. Hongkongers are extremely proud of their vehicles. They love quality and want only the best for their vehicles, and we’re sure that IGL will be the product that they are looking for," said Kwok.
"We tested the coatings ourselves and we were simply blown away by the results. We are definitely proud to join the Family and bear the IGL flag," Kwok continued.
IGL Coatings is one of the leading manufacturers of its innovative low and zero VOC ceramic coatings. Recently awarded for its efforts in sustainable technology, IGL Coatings continues to prioritise the use of sustainable materials in its products.
"We are excited to have Hong Kong join our IGL Family. Hong Kong joins South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore and completes our "Four Asian Tiger" card, " jokes Keong Chun Chieh, Founder and CEO of IGL Coatings.
Hong Kong is ranked fourth on the UN Human Development Index and on the Global Financial Centers Index. It has registered an astounding growth of 7.9% for the first six months of 2021, double the worldwide average. According to a report by researchandmarkets.com, the automotive industry is witnessing a steady increase in demand, particularly in passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. As such, the government continues to encourage the flow of FDIs in the automotive industry.
"Hong Kong looks to be one of the most promising and fastest-growing automotive markets in the region," mentioned Keong. He continued, "It’s very positive that the automotive industry is receiving great support from its government. Even with the pandemic, the forecast predicts a strong surge in sales until 2026 for the automotive aftercare market. We welcome and look forward to the growth of the region!"
