Thank you for your question. If you need any additional
clarification, please don't hesitate to ask.
There are two general ways to approach this. The first way is to hire
a consultant, consultancy or contract sales person in the US to shop
your product to various manufacturers.
I spoke with Ron Joseph of Ron Joseph & Associates, a firm who works
in this very area. Mr. Joseph happens to be an expatriate from South
Africa, and received experience and training at Plascon-Evans. His
company has several contacts in the industry and can shop your product

ChemQuest is another such company that does similar work, as verbally
confirmed with representative Todd Muhleman. Contact Mike Brown, who
is in charge of the coatings area:

spoke. He may be able to assist in this regard:

The second method for shopping your product is to directly approach
manufacturers. You would either need an inside sales person to do
this, or you could do it yourself (if you feel confident enough to
sell your product). Companies that are most equipped to manufacture
your product are ones that are most likely in the zero VOC paint
business, as they already have the existing manufacturing wherewithal.
Their willingness to take on a new product would have to be
determined. Several possible companies with contact information are
listed at this link:

If you would like to hire an inside salesperson, you could opt to post
a classified ad in various online places, such as www.prosavvy.com, or
www.monster.com, with copy that would target responses directly to
your employment offering.
