The construction market is slowly improving in the US, but the rest of the world cannot wait to get back to work. At Fritz-Pak, we recognize the potential for growth worldwide, and we are pleased to announce the addition of three new international distributors.
KMO Market Initiatives Pvt. Ltd is the new distributor for Fritz-Pak products in India. Centrally located in Hyderabad, the company is well positioned to take advantage of India’s growing construction market. “Infrastructure is absolutely booming in India right now,” says Nanda Vura, president of KMO International operations in the USA. “The construction market is currently 11% of India’s GDP, and it’s growing every year. Our cement consumption right now is 3 times that of the US. This is the right time and the right market to be introducing value-added products like Fritz-Pak.”
Earlier this year, we at Fritz-Pak personally travelled to Delhi to promote our products in that market. We even had a demonstration of our most popular product, Slick-Pak Pump Primer. “It was a great opportunity for us to show how easy and cost effective our products can be in any market,” says Gabriel Ojeda, president of Fritz-Pak. “The job was a 12 story high rise, pumping vertically from a stationary pump approximately 150 meters in length. The trial was an absolute success, as the ready-mix producer was ready to buy a case of product on the spot!”
Another developing market that has been using a lot of Fritz-Pak product has been Russia. A new limited liability company has formed under the name Slick SPb. “We are opening a special department for distributing concrete additives produced by Fritz-Pak,” says Alexander Istomin, who operates Slick SPb in St. Petersburg. “We want all our customers to associate the work Slick with Slick-Pak products. Our aim is to persuade customers to use Slick-Pak instead of what they are using now, mostly used hydraulic oil, cement slurries, and Chinese pump primers. We’ve already had great success, and I believe the concrete additives market in Russia is at the beginning of its rise.”
Mix-TEQ is a newly formed company operating out of Dubai, UAE. After several months of trials, construction companies in the Middle East are starting to use more Fritz-Pak products. “I am having more and more success with the Fritz-Pak products,” says Margarita Bligh, distributor for Fritz-Pak in the Middle East. “I have had trials with customers pumping anywhere from 50 meters up to 300 meters. It’s a very versatile product and easy to transport to jobsites.”
Fritz-Pak Corporation is a member of the American Concrete Institute, the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association, the American Society of Concrete Contractors, including the Decorative Concrete Council, the American Concrete Pumping Association, and the International Packaged Concrete Manufacturer’s Association
