NEW YORK (July 7, 2009)—SpongeTech Delivery Systems Inc. has expanded its operation into Europe, forming SpongeTech Europe, with an office in Switzerland, in response to the growing European demand for its products.
The company—which use liquid absorbing foam and polyurethane matrices to make its cleaning products—also said it will be setting up an operation in Asia soon.
A physical presence in Europe will help the firm increase sales and provide stronger service to European customers, as well as those in the Middle East and Africa, the company said.
SpongeTech's reusable cleaning product line currently includes the Car Care, Child Care, Home Care and Pet Care sponges. Cleaning compounds are embedded into the hydrophilic foam and released when the sponge is soaked and applied to a surface with minimal pressure. The products allow users to wash their cars, pets, homes, children or even themselves numerous times with each sponge, SpongeTech said.
The sponges are self-cleaning, inhibit bacterial growth and are recyclable, the firm said.
