Göttelborn, Germany, 22 May 2012. Nanogate AG (ISIN DE000A0JKHC9), the leading international integrated systems provider for high-performance surfaces, intensifies the strategic partnership with an international technology and chemical group. This cooperation with one of the world´s leading companies also includes the implementation of the largest order in the history of the company with deliveries in the lower double-digit millions over a period of five years.
As part of the contract, the Dutch Nanogate subsidiary Eurogard B.V. will be supplying high quality coatings for transparent plastics used in numerous applications. Examples include passenger aircraft windows, soundproofed and safety glazing, and glass panels in special-purpose vehicles. Eurogard is a leading supplier of coatings for two-dimensional components and number one in the global specialist market for transparent plastics of the highest optical quality. Transparent plastics such as polycarbonate will be able to replace glass in many applications in the future because they are lighter, more stable, more resistant to breakage and more efficient to process.
Ralf Zastrau, CEO of Nanogate AG, commented: "The strategic partnership with one of the big players in the market for innovative plastics once again confirms our unique position as a leading international integrated systems provider for high-performance surfaces. We will continue to build on our good position in the market for optical quality coatings in the 2012 financial year and expect to receive further large orders throughout the Group. On this basis, we aim to continue on the growth path we have followed in recent years."
Anthony Lucassen, Managing Director of Eurogard B.V. added: "This long-term partnership is borne of our extensive expertise with materials and of our many years of experience in large-scale serial production. It enables us to support our customers not just as a supplier, but also as a partner in the innovation process."
