Sustainable Solutions International (SSi™) Forms Exclusive License Agreement with Caroma®

continues and expands sales, marketing and brand building efforts
with offices in Los Angeles and Vancouver
VANCOUVER, British Columbia–Caroma® and Sustainable Solutions International (SSi™) have entered into a long-term license agreement to distribute the Caroma brand and its products in North America, including Caroma’s revolutionary dual-flush toilet technology. SSi will be the exclusive distributor and marketer of the Caroma brand, strengthening the brand and expanding sales in the United States.
Caroma’s North America operations will be absorbed into SSi, with distribution continuing from facilities in Los Angeles County, Vancouver and Wisconsin. SSi will also continue to work with Armco Agencies of Ontario Canada and Alterna based in Miami. SSi will have direct access to Caroma’s product design and R & D departments as well as production facilities. SSi and Caroma have agreed to work in collaboration regarding new product development with Caroma continuing to provide on-going technical support.
“We’ve been a distributor of the Caroma brand for quite some time; we know the products, understand the North American marketplace and respect their well-deserved reputation as innovators and leaders of high efficiency toilets. The SSi family and team have been fans for years and in fact one of our own founding partners introduced Caroma to North America in 1993,” says Doug Sproule, COO of SSi.
“Our new partnership agreement confirms our commitment to our loyal customer base in the US, Canada and Mexico and it enables us to provide total environmentally responsible building solutions. For Caroma, they get the benefit of our deep roots in the industry – knowing what the market demands are, and being able to react and respond,” Sproule continued.
