Nowadays, the eco-friendly feature matters when constructing buildings. Keeping up with this trend, there appeared a lot of manufacturers producing non-flammable and lightweight boards, but this company is differentiated as it uses eco-friendly materials. Also, not only focusing on reducing emission of harmful chemical substances, it has developed various functions including features of incombustibleness, dehumidification, deodorization, etc. and several test reports verify the product's quality. The company manufactures the products without heating method. Originally, those products not using heating method have the vulnerability of solidity, but the company has compensated the defect. Instead, it adopted drying method that keeps its inherent property of matter and makes the process relatively simplified. Environmental problems don't occur through the whole processes and the products are recyclable. The products can be supplied to construction materials providers and interior design companies, and used for public facilities, commercial buildings and private houses. Since eco-friendly buildings will be constructed in the future continuously, the products have marketability. And when they are introduced to public facilities such as schools and public hospitals, they can be admitted as an eco-friendly building in compliance with fire safety standards. Under license agreement, partners should commercialize the product and bring it to market by licensing agreement or via commercial agreement with technical assistance on further product development.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
