LOS ANGELES, CA, February 12, 2007–Soft Gel Technologies, Inc.® (SGTI) has appointed Sochim International S.p.A. of Milan, Italy to represent their portfolio of dietary supplements for sales in Italy. SGTI entered the European market 3 years ago, and continues to increase its presence through product launches of key branded formulas, such as CoQSol®, Injuv®, Sytrinol®, Posinol®, and many more. The European sales division of SGTI is managed by Roy Bouskila from a satellite office in Northern Israel. Sochim is a full-service agency, who offers scientific and technical support for product formulation and production, and even assists with packaging and product launches. They have achieved the UNI EN ISO 9001:2000 quality certification for distribution of raw materials, technical assistance, and production of finished products.
Roy Bouskila remarked, “Many of our clients require the bulk soft gelatin capsules that we manufacture to be bottled, blistered, and labeled in Europe. Because Sochim has all of these packaging capabilities available, they were an obvious choice for us to develop a partnership.” SGTI President, Ron Udell, commented, “We are pleased about our new relationship with Sochim. Their vast experience and knowledge of the Italian market will be extremely beneficial for the growth of Soft Gel Technologies, Inc.” Roy Bouskila added, “The presence of a local company enhances the quality of service we can offer our customers.”
