Trelleborg’s offshore operation based in the UK has selected Kyung Kook International Corp. (KKIC) as its new Korean agent.
The decision was made based on the fact that KKIC offers increased exposure within the Korean market due to its comprehensive relationships with high profile organizations within the country.
Andy Hey, Key Account Manager for Trelleborg’s offshore operation states: “KKIC has experience working with a number of Trelleborg businesses and we are excited that our offshore products are added to KKIC’s portfolio, further developing and strengthening our relationship with new and existing customers in Korea.
“To ensure future business opportunities within the Korean market, we embarked on a weeklong training session with Mr. Jeong Hoon Kim, General Manager at KKIC, so he knew our products and services inside and out. Partnering with KKIC enables us to enhance our global reach with a local presence.”
Mr. Jeong Hoon Kim, General Manager at KKIC states: “We are pleased to represent another Trelleborg business for this region and look forward to developing Trelleborg’s offering to local Korean customers. By working together we will combine KKIC’s local knowledge with Trelleborg’s global strength and capabilities.”
This new partnership supports Trelleborg’s strategy to strengthen its positions in attractive market segments.
