As the Guyana Trade and Investment Exhibition (GuyTIE) continues the next session of its business-to-business meetings, several businesses took the opportunity to launch new products.
General Manager and Director at Massy Technologies Guyana, Jason Sahai highlighted the company’s new alternative energy solar initiative. It includes a solar panel, inverters, charge controllers and charge regulators. “Our intention is to work with small to medium contractors to deploy solar and wind energy throughout the country. When we look at it and calculate the return on investment in five to seven years, depending on the energy consumption, persons can be saving that amount of money in electricity costs.”
Sahai said the new product line has already drawn interest from several international investors: “We found it very responsive, a lot of people are interested in what we are doing, and that is one of the reasons we chose GuyTIE because it connects us with businesses. Also, we are looking at a lot of contractors who can help deploy our solutions.”
Operating for over 13 years with its unique brand of sleep technology, Comfort Sleep’s Managing Director, Dennis Charran said his company is always focused on introducing new products. “This is our eighth line of mattresses. It’s the highest foam line we are launching; high density foam with 300 grams of fabric which has a 10-year life span on it. We use international standards to produce our products. Comfort Sleep has become a household name right now when it comes to sleeping and mattresses.”
Charran said the new product lines launch at GuyTIE was aimed at attracting international buyers. So far, the company has had inquiries from Cuban and Korean buyers.
GuyTIE is a business-to-business event intended to create a platform for local export-ready businesses to engage foreign buyers and other potential partners. Over 100 buyers and potential investors from Canada, the US and Europe are attending the event.
