Nanex, a Belgian-based innovator and manufacturer of superhydrophobic nanotechnology products, announced last week the creation of its first international subsidiary.
Nanex Canada will be headquartered in Montreal.
Nanex currently manufactures three lines of products: Always Dry, Clean & Coat, and a self-cleaning coating for automotive bodies.
These products contain proprietary nano-polymers that when sprayed upon a surface provide advanced abilities including super hydrophobic (extremely water-repellent), oleophobic (extremely oil repellent), and scratch resistance as well as self-cleaning properties.
“Nanex’s expansion into Canada is a tremendous leap forward in our international operations, creating not only more efficient and direct channels into all of North America, but also providing access to a new top-notch intellectual pool for our R&D efforts,” said Boyd Soussana, National Marketing Director at Nanex Canada.
“We feel that Quebec and Canada have a great reputation as leaders in the field of advanced technologies, and we are proud to contribute to this scientific landscape.”
Upon launch, Nanex Canada will begin with retail and sales of its nanotechnology products, which have a wide range of consumer applications. Through its Quebec laboratories Nanex Canada will also be pursuing R&D initiatives, in order to further develop safe and effective nano-polymers for consumer use, focusing entirely on ease of application and cost efficiency for the end consumer.
