|Back in 2010 Klaus Wolff spotted a gap in the market.|
|As a glass industry veteran, who has spent 30 years working in the container glass industry, I could
see that Thailand was an up and coming market with plenty of potential for the glass industry.
|As the South-East Asian country’s GPD grew, its citizens had an increased disposable income.
This meant they had more money to spend on items including glass, such as drinks bottles.
Thailand is a strong consumer of drinks, particularly energy drinks.
|The country of 67 million people also has a huge tourist industry, which would also increase
the number of drinks bottles sold.
|After doing my own market research, I left my role at German company Hartmann and Bender
and set up a business, PGM Technic Co Ltd, based in Thailand’s capital, Bangkok.
|We provide a number of solutions to the glass industry, including spare parts and variables for
glass forming machines, Mould Holder Inserts, Take Out Assemblies, and replacement parts for mechanisms.
|We also provide customized parts of our own development or initiated by our customers.|
Since PGM – which stands for Parts for Glass Making – formed in 2010, we sold more than 400 different items.
Using my 30 years industry experience, we also provide consultation services.
PGM-Technic is a member of the German-Thai Chamber of Commerce and has formed a partnership with its Thai partner JEP ( Jitchai Engineering Products ), to implement German standards in order to improve the quality and efficiency of processes.
|We still using our contacts back in our German homeland and have a partnership with DPM Glasstechnic, which is based in southern Germany.
DPM is a supplier of forming equipment to the Saint-Gobain Oberland / Verallia group.
|In addition we also work with other European contractors, so we can offer a complete range of parts for the glass forming machines of various brands, like Emhart, Heye, GPS.|
|Our strength is our proximity to our customers. When compared to our competitors, PGM is practically on the doorstep of the customers in South East Asia and we can see them any time, compared to sales agents from competitor companies who have to fly in from overseas.|
|We believe, to run a successful business, you have to see the customers regularly. We can enter as a Thai company much easier than oversea companies.
As an independent partner, we are flexible and close to our customers.
|In the past four years our company has established itself in the Thai market and now PGM has secured a Malaysian partner, Ivan Teoh, Glass Technic SDN.BHD.|
|We believe the time is right to expand further afield and is interested in expanding into South East Asia countries|
