Premier Environmental Expands Portfolio with Prestigious New Clients

Lancashire, United Kingdom, 2016-Aug-15 — /EPR SMALL BUSINESS NEWS/ — The UK’s Leading Residential & Commercial Insect Screen & Fly Screens Supplier Announces Completed Projects for United Utilities and the Saudi Royal Family

Britain’s leading name in high quality, high performance insect and fly screens is proud to announce the completion of a further two high-profile projects. Having already earned an impressive and varied international client list, Premier Environmental has recently worked on properties belonging to both the Saudi Royal Family and United Utilities.

Premier Environmental specialises in bespoke pest control solution for domestic, commercial and industrial properties alike, along with fully comprehensive installation services. Endorsed by dozens of blue chip companies and hundreds of satisfied customers, Premier Environmental is continually expanding its portfolio with increasingly impressive accomplishments.

The Saudi Royal Family

“The order was to supply bespoke and stylish fly screens to cover the opening windows in the £300m London household. The screens had to be effective, yet unobtrusive and aesthetically pleasing. The solution was to install over 90 of our Prem 40 roller type fly screens throughout the house. After looking at a number of suppliers our screens were chosen because of the build quality, guarantee’s and that we have been supplying screens for over 25 years. They were so happy with the final installation that another three households belonging to the prince have had our screens installed.” – Premier Environmental

One of the brand’s most impressive accomplishments to date, the team was recently hired to work on the London residence of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia – a property with an estimated value of £300 million.

The challenge was to tailor a bespoke solution, which along with providing outstanding protection from insects would also not detract from the aesthetic and elegance of the incredible building.

Not only was the team successful, but the Saudi Royal Family was so pleased with the job, they re-hired them to work on another three extraordinary properties.

United Utilities

“Flies are an obvious problem around waste water treatment plants, with very small owl midges and drain flies, and until recently the on-site offices had air conditioning installed in them. With a commitment to an absolute reduction in Carbon emissions by 26%, United Utilities were looking for new ways to keep the offices cool. In order to be able to open the windows and let fresh air in to keep the offices cool rather than using air conditioners ourroller fly screen system was chosen for the opening windows as it offered the versatility of keeping the flies out in summer and being almost invisible when retracted.” – Premier Environmental

Over at United Utilities, fly screens from Premier Environmental were installed on a trial basis as a means by which to both protect workers from insects and cool the interior of a water treatment plant. The trial was so effective that the screens have since been rolled out to the entire network of United Utilities plants nationwide – another incredible endorsement for Premier Environmental.

The company offers comprehensive domestic fly screen manufacturing and installation services as well as those for commercial and industrial clients.

About Premier Environmental:
Premier Environmental is the UK’s leading name in the production and installation of superior-quality fly and insect screens. With over 25 years of experience and an extensive list of high-profile clients, the team behind Premier Environmental has earned an international reputation for going the extra mile and exceeding expectations. Just a few clients to have offered their full endorsement of the brand include Cadbury, Morrisons, The National Trust, the Saudi Royal Family, Kingston College, P&O Ferries, Gatwick Airport, Harvey Nichols, the Savoy Hotel and many more besides.

Moonbasa and ITA to Bring U.S. Fashion Brands to China

Partnership Provides New e-Platforms for Brands Interested in Selling to China

Los Angeles, CA, 2016-Aug-09 — /EPR SMALL BUSINESS/ — The International Trade Administration (ITA) has partnered with Moonbasa, a large China-based e-commerce company, to support a digital platform dedicated to U.S. brands interested in selling to the Chinese market. This will provide U.S. companies with an opportunity to open a web store on Moonbasa’s e-commerce platform, and also give them an opportunity to participate in a three-day online-to-off-line (o-to-o) experience at Moonbasa’s flagship digital store in Shanghai.

According to Kim-Bang Nguyen, Director, Export Promotion and Strategic Business Alliances for the Office of Textiles and Apparel (OTEXA) at ITA, “China is a difficult market to penetrate, especially for small- and medium-size businesses. We believe Moonbasa, an e-commerce platform with a dedicated ‘U.S. Brand Mall’ and full-service commerce solutions, is an effective way for these businesses to create a new channel of distribution in China.”

Moonbasa is a China-based fashion-only e-commerce platform with an all-inclusive turnkey service. It launched a ‘U.S. Brand Mall’ last year supporting more than 25 small-to medium-sized U.S. brands. Such brands currently on the platform include Ocean Current, Taylor and Sage, Janet Chung, Band of Gypsies, and Halo. An o-to-o operation, Moonbasa is slated to open 15 more brand stores this year.

Moonbasa will be exhibiting at WWDMAGIC in the Las Vegas Convention Center August 15-17 in booth 73500 Central Hall, and welcomes U.S. fashion brands to learn about this opportunity. Brands can also contact Barbara Graff, bgraff@moonbasausa.com or Kim-Bang Nguyen, kim-bang.nguyen@trade.gov

Bang-Bang in Watchland

Lausanne, Vaud, Switzerland, 2016-May-27 — /EPR Small Business News/ — On March 22nd, the Goldgena Project was launched with the goal of creating affordable mechanical watches with complete transparency regarding their origin and costs. The aim is also to shake up the ‘Swiss Made’ label and the traditional approach to distribution and marketing. The community is invited to share their opinion and even get involved in each stage of the project. At the time of writing, more than 3,500 people have signed up, and our site is recording more than 28,000 visits and 45,000 views every month.

our first design

______________________

BRIEF SUMMARY OF PHASE 1

MARCH, 30TH – CHAPTER 1: TTO Label – Total Transparency on Origin DISCOVER
The Swiss Made label can be obscure and ultimately mislead consumers, as most of the components are manufactured abroad. The Goldgena Team has decided to make their watches with complete transparency, and have thus created the TTO label; Total Transparency on Origin.

APRIL, 13TH – CHAPTER 2: Transparency on Prices and Fixed Multiplier DISCOVER
Goldgena will be communicating and explaining the production cost of their watches. In addition, by selling directly to the end consumer they will be able to apply an unmatched modifier of 3.5 to the production price.

APRIL 27TH – CHAPTER 3: Online Sale, Pop-Up Stores and Sponsorship DISCOVER
The Goldgena Project is planning to foster community power by offering a commission of 10% to anyone who generates a sale. In addition, an application will allow potential customers to meet watch owners, so that they can see the product before buying.

PHASE 2 – FRIST DESIGN UNVEILED

MAY 11TH – CHAPTER 1: Non-Swiss Made, Swiss Made or Swiss Manufacturing? DISCOVER
We wanted our first model to feel mechanical from every angle, so we made the dial an extension of the movement. We wanted the case to be simple, elegant and ergonomic, while still overflowing with character. Fine horns and crosspiece give it a particular, recognizable aesthetic.

In-house or standard movement? Non-swiss made, swiss made or swiss manufacturing? The community shares his opinion.

JUNE-AUGUST: Development and Crowdfunding
During the summer, the Goldgena Project will share every detail of the development. In September a crowdfunding campaign will be launched. The detailed program will be available end on May at www.goldgena.com

The Goldgena Project Dream Team

The Goldgena Project is run by a small watch design workshop called cosanova, and is currently made up of 3 people. Founded in 2005 by the designer Claudio D’Amore, the workshop is based in the heart of Swiss watchmaking, in Lausanne, not far from Geneva. In little more than 11 years, the cosanova workshop has had the honor of working with around forty watch brands, such as Tag Heuer, Parmigiani, Montblanc, Oris, Eberhard and even Hautlence.

The Founder, Claudio D’Amore
Born in Switzerland to Italian parents, in 2000 Claudio D’Amore (40) graduated from the ECAL (Lausanne Design School) with an HES degree in design. He then set off for London to work with Ross Lovegrove, the famous London-based designer, where he worked on the design of several watches for Tag Heuer (V4, Carrera Caliber 360, Golf Watch). Upon his return to Switzerland in 2005, he founded cosanova.

Dietary Supplement Firm Kaeng Raeng Inc Sues Former Contract Manufacturer For Alleged Idea Theft And Unfair Business Practices

Kaeng Raeng Inc., which develops and sells dietary supplements, filed suit against the firm that manufactured its private-label products for allegedly stealing its confidential and proprietary information to create and distribute a competing product that’s “substantially similar.”

The suit accuses San Jose-based contract manufacturer Multivitamin Direct, Inc. and its employees — President Paul Huang, Vice President/Business Development Viola Lee and Vice President/Product Development Alisia Cheuk — of breaches of contract, confidentiality and loyalty, intentional and negligent interference with prospective economic advantage, fraud and deceit, and unfair competition.

The suit also says defendants actively misled Kaeng Raeng about their relationship with the brand Raw Green Organics, which allegedly was created by Multivitamin Direct to sell competing products based on Kaeng Raeng’s confidential and proprietary information.

“There’s a presumed level of trust between brands and contract manufacturers,” said Kaeng Raeng’s Founder, President and CEO Lindsay Reinsmith. “Without this trust, conflicts of interest arise and business relationships are undermined.”

The suit, filed late Friday in Santa Clara County Superior Court, seeks “disgorgement of all revenues, earnings, profits, compensation and benefits” received by Multivitamin Direct, Huang, Lee and Cheuk because of their “wrongful business practices.”

It also asks the court to grant an injunction against Multivitamin Direct, Huang, Lee and Cheuk, prohibiting them from disclosing and using Kaeng Raeng’s confidential information, saying that otherwise Kaeng Raeng “will suffer further immediate and irreparable injury, loss and damage.”

The suit says Multivitamin Direct was established in 1987 and is a leading USDA-certified organic contract manufacturer in Northern California. Kaeng Raeng was founded by Reinsmith in 2009 as a small business in Palo Alto. Later that year, Multivitamin Direct signed a non-disclosure agreement and was engaged to produce Kaeng Raeng’s private-label dietary supplements.

In May 2011, the suit says, Kaeng Raeng shared details with Multivitamin Direct, Huang and Lee about a new greens-based detox cleanse product, and Huang and Lee shared the information with Cheuk. Details included ingredients, formulas, packaging, branding, marketing, advertising, pricing, sales, distribution, retailers, customers, vendors, product suppliers and industry trends.

Soon thereafter, the suit says, Multivitamin Direct’s production of Kaeng Raeng’s products “started to run consistently behind schedule” and Kaeng Raeng “became strained financially” waiting for inventory. Its final delivery, scheduled for September 2012, wasn’t delivered until February 2013, it says.

The suit says Raw Green Organics began gearing up to offer a “substantially similar” product in June 2011 — only one month after Kaeng Raeng revealed details of its new detox cleanse to Multivitamin Direct, adding that Raw Green Organics also adopted similar packaging, advertising, marketing and other matters.

When Reinsmith asked the defendants about the Raw Green Organics, they repeatedly told her it was simply a “client” they were “helping get started” and that none of Kaeng Raeng’s confidential information had been disclosed, the suit says.

At the same time, it says, Multivitamin Direct told Kaeng Raeng to find another manufacturer, forcing Kaeng Raeng to incur “lengthy and costly search efforts” and resulting “in the unnecessary disposal of valuable raw materials.”

Not until March 2014, did Kaeng Raeng discover evidence that Raw Green Organics is owned by Multivitamin Direct and managed by Huang, Lee and Cheuk, the suit says.

About Kaeng Raeng
Kaeng Raeng Inc, based in Sunnyvale, CA, develops and sells natural dietary supplements. Kaeng Raeng was founded in July 2009 by President and CEO Lindsay Reinsmith and still is a privately-owned, small corporation.

New Social Media Book Reveals How to Use Rivals’ Advertising Against Them Online

Mason Duchatschek, founder and president of the social media, marketing and video production company “Buildatribe LLC.,” has found a way to help entrepreneurs use rivals‘ advertising budgets against them.

In his new book, “Attract, Capture & Convert: 89 Simple Ways Entrepreneurs Make Money Online (& Offline) Using Social Media & Web Marketing Strategy,” Duchatschek reveals this secret and others beneficial to entrepreneurs.

In the book, Duchatschek shares details of an online marketing strategy designed to help small businesses generate Internet leads using name recognition associated with competitors’ products or services.

“A rival with a large advertising budget becomes an unwilling ally to a web savvy entrepreneur instead of an adversary without realizing it,” Duchatschek said.

Powerful social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ make it possible for small companies to compete online even if they don’t have a website.

“This web strategy is a brains versus brawn approach because the marketplace winner won’t always be the one with the biggest advertising budget,” he said. “In fact, it might be the opposite.”

Buildatribe LLC. (http://www.buildatribe.com) is located in Washington, Mo.

New Book Guides Entrepreneurs Through the Basics of Doing Business in China

 Prizgar Gonzales’s book,The Beginner’s Guide To Doing Business In China –

The eBook and paperback version is available on www.amazon.com. You can read Chapter One free on www.doingbusinesswithchina.biz.

Factual and informative, the book takes the reader through the basics of doing business in China. This book is a treasure-trove of excellent and priceless information for starting your own brand.

Having shrewdly positioned itself as the world’s factory, China offers the best opportunity for anyone in the U.S.A. to start a business.

For instance, if you have a sketch of a shoe design for women, or any other product, getting your brand manufactured in the U.S.A. is close to impossible. With China there are no such barriers and stop signs. A variety of countless factories abound.

The Chinese celebrate entrepreneurs by making it easy to get started. Their formula for facilitating small businesses is the minimum order quantity, or MOQ.

The minimum order quantity offered by China’s factories is the best opportunity for American entrepreneurs to get into the free enterprise game. Anyone with a passion for a product has two opportune options: initiate their own brand or get started buying wholesale.

Even if you have or don’t have a product, a passion, or a dream, China is the place to be. China’s economic banquet is so lavish, so layered; you too can fill your plate with countless products that cost pennies.

If you are yearning for the freedom of being your own boss, dancing to your individual rhythm, China could be your perfect partner.

The business highway in China is user friendly and The Beginner’s Guide To Doing Business In China will show you how to get in the right lane. Choose a product – create your own brand. Buy wholesale – sell to the world.

The book offers a step-by-step tour of the Canton Trade Fair, the Mother of all Trade Fairs, navigating the reader to find, under one roof, the core players for doing business with China.

Within the pages of The Beginner’s Guide To Doing Business In China you will find a tried and true approach to get on board as a participant on China’s economic juggernaut.
