Market Creator And Leader
"Everyone wants to be a McDonald's owner, but with something like Ecowash [Nanotek] they might get more return on their investment." Richard Evans, Franchise Council of Australia CEO (Daily Telegraph, 10 September 2007)
Nanotek has literally created an entirely new car washing market segment, where the car wash can be taken to the customer, anywhere!
Going from traditional water washing to liquid polymer nanotechnology is a massive paradigm shift, but the results speak for themselves. Nanotek holds the national contract for providing car cleaning services for Qantas Valet and handles product launches for all of Australia’s major car manufacturers including looking after the requirements of Ford, Holden, Hyundai and Suzuki at this year’s Australian International Motor Show.
“We get to do some really cool stuff! Every day is different and fun.” said Adam.
The Nanotek process uses a liquid polymer which is applied directly to the paint surface where it encapsulates dirt and lifts it from the surface of the paint. The polymer then acts as a lubricant between the dirt and the paint, enabling it to be removed without scratching – it also leaves a protective coating which lasts up to 6 weeks.Because the process doesn’t require water, the Nanotek service can be performed anywhere – home, office, on the street, even on the showroom floor!
Australian Born, Global Bred
Already with a strong presence in both Europe and the Middle East, Nanotek is now targeting key developing markets for the introduction of its service – starting with Russia.
“Russia is a huge market for us – we launched in May 2011 and are already ranked in the Top 5 most popular franchises in the country.”
“Being global means that our system has been tested across a wide range of cultures and climates – from the freezing winters of Russia, to the searing heat of Saudi Arabia. Our Aussie franchisees not only have the benefit of International Head Office being in Australia, but also the benefit of our experience from around the world” said Jim.
Nanotek’s global experience and scale enables it to offer it’s Australian franchisees pricing, technologies, alliances, experience, expertise and systems beyond the reach of purely domestic franchise systems.
One of the newest franchisees under the Nanotek banner is Ian Franke based in Camden NSW. As a former police officer Ian was attracted by the combination of lifestyle and business potential that the Nanotek business model offers.
“I’m my own boss but I have a extensive support system behind me. I can choose my own hours and work my business around my family ” said Ian.
“I wake up in the morning excited and actually looking forward to the day. I’ve bought a piece of land with my wife and we’re just about to start building a house on it to raise our children. I’m also looking at purchasing a second territory and taking more of a management role in my business.”
