I asked Mike, Sales manager at Feltest, to write something about his latest sales success. He was more than happy to tell me about his new connections with Japan. So this is what happened.
In close cooperation with our trusted manufacturer of the Hydrogel ™ BodyCooling vest and Feltest sales representative Mr. Toshimichi Hashimoto from the company IGT Testing Systems K.K. in Chiba-ken, we have sold 1.000 Feltest BodyCooling vests to the Japanese Paper mills of OJI Paper, a business line of OJI Holdings Cooperation.
The journey started with Mr. Hashimoto showing some product samples of the vests to the decision makers at various OJI Paper mills.
Seeing is believing. No, testing is believing! After testing the Feltest BodyCooling vests, the OJI Paper mills were more than convinced that the benefits of the BodyCooling vests would contribute to a safer working environment for the paper machine operators in their factories.
They were over the moon and experienced immediately the benefits:
1. Less dehydration; better concentration
2. Simple to activate and reusable many times
3. Brings cooling for a full working day; remains in standby for days!
Of course there are much more reasons to use the body cooling vest. Let me point them out for you.
Working in or around hot paper machines is dangerous for both the production and maintenance crews; safety is a HOT topic. Prevent heat stress situations and wear an iced vest!
Heat stress, disturbed balance
Extreme heat conditions disturb the balance in the human body: heat causes dizziness, dehydration, lower endurance levels and concentration loss; all serious health and safety risks. The Feltest BodyCooling vest contains a patented hydrogel that uses body heat to evaporate water; this effectively cools down the body.
Heat Stress & Safety
Avoid unnecessary heat stress during unplanned downtime, feeding the paper tail, working at hot positions. The Feltest BodyCooling vest provides effective cooling for a full working day. After activation, the vest remains in standby (when stored in a refrigerator) for about a week. Instant cooling when you need it!
Please contact Sales Manager Mike Peeters for more information about the Feltest BodyCooling vests and how to buy!
I wish you a warm summer with lot’s of cooling with our body cooling vests!
