EHC Expands To Korea

EHC has signed an agreement with Volta Power Systems Ltd of Seoul, Korea, as an EHC Distributor and Technology Licensee. Volta, will represent EHC products and services in the countries of South Korea and North Korea.

Volta has been an active EHC partner in Korea for many years and has a solid reputation in the industry. This latest step in the relationship with Volta has been several years in the making and both parties are excited to be moving forward.

Volta has been in business since the early 90’s in the field of industrial belting and has enjoyed great growth and success in the market-place. Volta’s President, Mr. David Kwon, has been involved in the rubber industry for many years and has escalator handrail knowledge and experience dating back 10 years.

EHC’s distributorship and licensing program was conceived in Europe in the mid-1990s and has met with a great deal of success. “Volta will be our second Distributorship / Licensee in the Eastern Region and will follow a business model which effectively establishes a full EHC product and service depot in the territory. EHC’s Korea Depot will be a one-stop shop for handrails, rollers, D-flector brushes, handrail guides and field splicing services,” said Mr. Patrick Bothwell, General Manager of EHC’s Japan office.

EHC Signs Exclusive 3-Year Agreement To Supply Paris Underground Escalator Handrails

EHC has successfully won the bid for a long-term handrail supply agreement for the Paris Underground in France. With close to 900 escalators in the Paris Underground, this is one of the world’s largest transit systems. This agreement strengthens EHC’s market share in France, where ACM is a licensee of EHC and provides handrails and field splicing services. EHC’s high quality standards and ability to supply NT (thermoplastic urethane) handrails were key in meeting the RATP’s needs for the next three years.

“We are pleased to have exceeded RATP’s expectations which resulted in them awarding the long-term contract to us over several other competitors,” said Norman Rosnersky, EHC’s EMEA Managing Director.

EHC supplies escalator handrails, field splicing, escalator cleaning services and safety brushes to many of the worlds’ largest transit systems.
