“They are a quality outfit and the licence is an absolute demonstration that TKS see our patented product as leading the field with significant unique selling points.

Somkid Vekinwattanasate, Managing Director at TKS, expressed his firm’s excitement at the prospect of using Haydale’s anti-counterfeiting technology.

“We see a strong commercial arrangement as key to sales success specifically in Thailand. together with a highly consistent product. We have worked with Haydale inks for some time and their consistency and high-performance Graphene Inks was one of the deciding factors to sign this licence,” he said.
