Orissa International assisted a Finnish manufacturer of hydraulic hose protection products such as high-quality plastic spirals, textile sleeves and bundling straps. Its regional office in Singapore was looking for potential distributors and end-users of their products in Thailand and wanted to add more distributors and end-users in the Philippines. Orissa International’s team in Thailand and the Philippines contacted a number of companies that are importers and distributors as well as end-users like service centers specializing in hydraulic hoses for various industrial applications that have the potential to integrate hydraulic hose protection in their services. The teams in the two countries were able to arrange videoconference meetings with eight hydraulic hose distributors and some engineering contractors that specialized in the repair and maintenance of hydraulic systems.
