During the week of November 17, 2019 Jim Wilson CEEO of Box Latch™ Products made by Eco Latch Systems, and Phil Southam, our Australian Associate had the pleasure of participating in the six-day Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation’s (WEDC) trade venture in Australia. With stops in Sydney and Melbourne, this trip’s purpose was to promote the export of products manufactured in Wisconsin. The photograph above illustrates Jim (right) and Phil (left) preparing for one of the 13 visits they made to potential distributors, packaging waste management consulting firms, the Australian Packaging Covenant Organization and the press.
Jet Lumani from JetBox already had ordered products through Phil to offer to his customers. Gateway Packaging had indicated a strong interest in becoming our principal distributor with distributor facilities throughout Australia.
