Tue 10th Jul 2012

ROK Global PLC, the mobile, web and industrial technology, applications and services company, has announced it has signed a Distribution Agreement for its ROK Shield glass-strengthening product with Yelim GMS Corporation in South Korea.

ROK Shield is one of the unique and highly innovative portfolio of safety, security and industrial technology products, backed by 4 patent applications,  now marketed as ROK Protective Systems following the acquisition of Wintec by ROK in April this year.

ROK Protective Systems portfolio also includes blast protection systems for pipelines and conduits, anti-corrosion longevity solutions for steel and other metals and materials, anti-cracking and strengthening products for concrete, as well as natural product oil spill recovery systems, safety panels for the construction industry and riot shields for law enforcement agencies.

Yelim GMS Corporation is a leading provider of architectural glass, thin float glass, transparent electrical conducting coated glass, and solar-cell application glass in Korea and are the Korean distributor for NSG/ Pilkington Group.

“We are delighted to have Yelim GMS Corporation as our distributors for ROK Shield in Korea not just for the new business revenue it will generate but also for the fact that such a respected and leading glass specialist company should be so impressed with the efficacy of ROK Shield” said Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman of ROK. “Because Yelim undertook their own independent testing and were very satisfied that ROK Shield-coated glass is considerably stronger than standard uncoated glass, we are now able to confidently promote the product to other specialist companies around the world with even greater vigour.”

ROK Global PLC was founded by US Billionaire John Paul DeJoria and UK serial technology entrepreneur, Jonathan Kendrick.

In addition to being the co-founder of ROK, John Paul DeJoria is Chairman and CEO of John Paul Mitchell Systems, the manufacturer of Paul Mitchell hair care products and is also co-founder of Patron Tequila, the world’s leading premium tequila brand.

In addition to industrial technology products, ROK has pioneered many new technologies in the rapidly-evolving mobile, web and security space including high quality  mass-market Mobile TV (which can be streamed, live and on-demand, over  mass-market 2.5G as well as 3G and Wi-Fi), as well as mobile security technologies, which it licenses to law-enforcement agencies, and multi-language text-to-speech technologies.
