Based in Singapore with a head office in Perth, Western Australia, the company executed a 12-month exclusive distribution agreement with Touch Guard Pty Ltd in December 2020 for Nanoveu’s products including Nanoshield antiviral products in Australian and New Zealand markets.
The agreement with Touch Guard – a wholly-owned subsidiary of Melbourne-based private investment company Jaszac Investments – is effective immediately and incentivises sales with a US$1 million purchase order target for the distributor to maintain exclusivity.
Nanoveu has granted the discretion to extend the exclusivity period through two further term options, each for a period of 36 months, should Touch Guard generate purchase orders above US$1 million within the period.
Through Jaszac, Touch Guard holds a strong distribution presence across Australia.
Jaszac is a private investment company based in Melbourne which operates a diverse portfolio in international and Australian markets, holding interests ranging from consumer goods & distribution business to an A-League soccer club, as well as several hospitality and property ventures.
