After having finalized distribution agreements for the main European markets in the first half of 2016, AMSilk now succeeded in winning a renowned distribution partner for the Asian market. From now on, the Korean-based company Hanjoo C&C will cover the distribution of the AMSilk products Silkbeads (microparticles) and Silkgel (hydrogel) in Korea. These products are functional ingredients used in cosmetics and personal care applications.

“After having implemented cooperations with our three new distributors RAHN, ZEUS and BIOCHIM for most parts of the European market, we are now progressing in our internationalization strategy. With Hanjoo we have won a strong new partner for selling our high-performance products in the advanced and innovative Korean market.
