SHENZHEN, China, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — P2i, the world leader in liquid repellent nano-coating technology, today opened a new technology center in Shenzhen, China, following increased demand for its protective coatings on consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablets and wearable devices.
Carl Francis, Chief Executive Officer, P2i, comments: “As a proven technology solutions provider, P2i is already experiencing commercial success with the Splash-proof nano-coating. Over 50 million consumers are already benefiting from more reliable devices as brands such as Motorola, Plantronics and GN ReSound apply the technology onto their products as a standard part of the manufacturing process.
“In 2014 the next generation Dunkable™ technology will be released into the marketplace, allowing devices to work underwater without heavy, expensive, bulky, and heat retentive seals and membranes. It is already generating huge interest and the opening of the new office is a reflection of this.”
Initially, the P2i Technology, Shenzhen office will host 17 staff in roles including administration and finance through to implementation technicians and process engineers.
Donald Zhang, General Manager China, P2i, comments: “The location of the new P2i office in Shenzhen is close to P2i’s customers, allowing us to deliver application development and technical capability at their greatest convenience. It also helps us to attract and retain the very best staff, as the Shenzhen area is a hot-bed for talented and experienced operational employees with high skillsets.”
With a large number of P2i nano-coating systems already in operation in customer facilities in China, the new office provides an opportunity to extend the operational support to include pre-production development work. The P2i Technology, Shenzhen office, will also provide a central hub for customer support services which ensure the uptime and efficiency of the P2i nano-coating systems within customer manufacturing sites.
Peter Rankin, Chief Operations Officer, comments: “In January alone, P2i had over a million smartphones going through our nano-coating systems in China. Having local support services means we can respond to any production stresses or potential issues in a timely manner. Routine interaction with the systems means we can update the technology offering, ensuring our customers always have the best possible performance.”
