In an interview with Insights Success, the Founder and General Manager of NANO4LIFE EUROPE L.P., Andreas Dimitras broadly discusses about the company and its role in the respective industry.
Below are highlights from the interview conducted between Andreas and Insights Success:
Give a brief overview of the company, its uniqueness and its vision.
Nanotechnology is increasingly considered to be the future worldwide technology and has been forecasted as the second industrial revolution. ΝΑΝΟ4LIFE EUROPE L.P. since 2008, caught up this evolution train by providing to a vast number of countries, a great range of nanotechnology solutions over textiles, building materials and vehicles surfaces the choice of self-cleaning and water proofing effect through a total green environmental approach.
In close cooperation with world leading Nanotechnology Institutes based in Germany, we design and create our unique Nanotechnology products. Our branded Nano-coatings have been created with Si02 (Silicone Dioxide Pure Quartz) utilizing the Sol- Gel production process which creates highly durable, completely safe, harmless and ready for application products.
We are proud of our, maybe the largest range of Nanotechnology products, which sum up 90 different kinds in up to 450 different choices of packages from 10ml to 1000 liters in order to cover the demand from the slightest individual need to the highest industrial use.
What are the cutting-edge products/solutions offered by ΝΑΝΟ4LIFE?
Under the scope that all our products can be considered as cutting-edge both on building sector, vehicles and textiles, I would just be focused on our latest product flagship achievements on anti-scratching surface coatings and on hygiene field. Both ranges integrate the latest and most impressive nanotechnology qualities which at a point can be viewed as property guards and lifesaving protection masters.
The brand new NANODIAMOND series entered our already vast range of innovative products in 2017 from the best scientific laboratories in the world. This product incorporates an ultra-high technology coating that protects with full coverage the vehicle paintwork from environmental and human threatening factors. The added value of a scratch-free car after 10 years of its use – life span protection of the products – or the precious time saving of reducing its washes to almost zero is hard to be assessed currently at its full extend but I am sure that it will be more than thrilling.
The same applies to our Diamond series on glass surfaces and can and will save time and money both in building and vehicle sector. The second cutting-edge product to be launched within 1st quarter of 2019 is the antibacterial / hygiene series, NANO4- HYGIENE LIFE, and it expected to gain a great share both in selling numbers and in the worldwide preferences as a permanent health protection guard.
With 3 years anti-bacterial safety, 3 years permanent protection and a great value for little money, we will provide an invisible but always standby health shield for every human being who needs it. And who doesn’t?
Give a detailed description of the featured person’s influence over the company and the Nanotechnology industry.
Basically, the company has been shaped by my own inspirations, life time experiences and dreams. It’s like answering for one of my children. ΝΑΝΟ4LIFE EUROPE L.P. is one of them that has grown up with great care, silent hope, powerful expectations, hard work and a great vision: to provide valuable products and create a multinational presence by establishing a greener and environmental friendly gift to our valuable property and health.
I believed in Nanotechnology from the very first time I looked up to it and my company just like my dream followed its universal course: upward and with increasing trend. I hope that I offered to the nanotechnology awareness a little push up hint in comparison to the vast worldwide uprising usage in numerous application fields and our loyal customers to continue inspiring our big dream.
Describe the experiences, achievements or lessons learned that have shaped the journey of the company.
I strongly believe that sometimes you lose and sometimes you learn. If you lose without learning, the disaster is nearby. As the journey of this company is a life journey for more than a decade for me and we both still alive, I assume that many lessons have been quite healing for the overall life span. The numerous disappointments and heart beating over the dream success and the painful uphill climbing for establishing the brand succeeded the overturn sum up of our brand presence in 45 countries and a company value of at least 100 times more of the initial investment. Risks taken, mistakes happened, lessons learned, and we move on.
What are the challenges faced while providing Nanotechnology solutions and how is ΝΑΝΟ4LIFE serving to tackle them?
Nanotechnology spans to a vast applications’ field from plain textile coatings to bio-science, genetics, chemistry and medicine. As its expansion is faster than the public awareness over Nano-scientific achievements, a great barrier is the absence of knowledge about it which often can lead to a negative perception of the nanotechnology as a whole. This universal obstacle together with a more demanding financial investment on advertising for increasing awareness, places the nanotechnology expansion a little bit more difficult to be perceived as necessary in comparison with other “daily needed” products. This exact same problem we have faced and we continue to face in our business, but we are constantly trying to overcome it with information and social media tools for increasing the awareness and the consequent demand.
What according to you could be the potential future of Nanotechnology and how does NANO4LIFE envision sustaining its competency?
As I have mentioned, not as an opinion but as a fact, nanotechnology is being characterized as the second and major technical revolution globally and although its principles are known for a few decades now, just recently is evolving with rapid steps and huge advancements. Its future is yet to be discovered with thrilling and revolutionary achievements and our basic aim is NANO4LIFE to be in this boat.
As our first decade provided our sustainability with steady growth, we are heading towards our best times by using our gained expertise and by renewing our range with all the best and top-quality coatings that our field can possibly offer.
