Klean Kanteen Partners with New Distributor in South Korea

CHICO, Calif. (August 1, 2018) – Effective immediately, Klean Kanteen, leader in the reusable drinkware category, has signed with Shinmyung Glovix (SMG) distributor in Korea to help retain and grow one of their largest markets in Asia. Klean Kanteen joins clients such as Leatherman, Tatanka, Ledlenser, 5.11 and Zippo at the long standing and highly regarded distributor.

“We view all our distributors as an extension of the Klean family, therefore it’s important to share similar values and have effective communication with said family,” said Jennefer Traynor, International Sales Manager at Klean Kanteen. “SMG comes highly recommended by our trusted distributor network, and it’s already evident that they will be excellent global advocates for a market we’re working to expand and our common goal to reduce single-use-waste.”

Founded in 1973, SMG is a family run business that shares a similar commitment to corporate and social responsibility as Klean Kanteen. With an emphasis on quality, honesty and transparency, SMG believes in promoting brand awareness and enriching lives of consumers through the products they carry. General Manager Erick Yu and Brand Manager Micah Lee will manage the Klean Kanteen account at SMG.
