Through its affiliate in France, Falken also pursues the development of its non-competing private label business which contributes materially to economies of scale in raw materials and research and development costs.

The Company recently completed its second product introduction in the United States and will commence appointing distributors there as of 2006. The Company is present in seven primary market segments, and its clients include, for example : the largest distribution networks in the automotive sector, major gasoline station chains, one of the most exclusive retail auto aftermarket chains in Europe with 260 stores in six European nations; and a distribution network covering most other market segments. The Company regularly sells products to government agencies and a large number of national and multinational firms.
All products are sold in 11 European languages and are manufactured to service the whole of the European market. Consumer products are manufactured in different editions, i.e., NE Northern European; CE Central Europe; SE Southern Europe; US The Americas, and C Canada and the Commonwealth. Languages and editions are added as the Company expands its Super Distribution network.
