PETALING JAYA, 22ND JULY 2022 – As the demand for Home Improvement in the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) segment has increased tremendously driven by skilled labour shortage in home fixing thus causing a hike in service prices, Selleys aims to be the frontrunner in the segment driven by its easy-to-use methods targeted for homeowners.
Dedicated to offering high-quality, innovative products that will meet consumers’ needs, Selleys aims to expand its market footprint by increasing product awareness and demand for items that can assist in home.
Mr. Chen Lee Siong, General Manager, Group TU Business said “We understand that the cost of repair or even decorating has increased over the past years, increasing the demand and interest for DIY home improvement products. We hope with our product, more homeowners can fix simple household repairs by themselves, thus save the time, cost and reduce stress of facing a broken or malfunctioning piece at home.”
The five key products that were featured during the event were RP7 which could stop squeaks, smoothens frozen window or drawer joints, No More Gaps that could fill in fine cracks on walls, Knead It Underwater which could seal holes in leaking pipes, fix broken ceramic household items, Supa Glue which could fix broken plastic household items, as well as Liquid Nails that could assist with DIY projects such as fixing a wall book shelf, fixing up a broken cabinet, and many more.
As one of the efforts by Selleys to empower people to fix simple household repairs, an interactive session with media representatives and influencers engagement workshop #DareToRepair was held on July 21, 2022. During the event, participants were given the opportunity to experience Selleys products hands-on as they learn how to use the products, thus encouraging them to #DareToRepair.
Moving forward, Mr Chen said Selleys will continue to innovate new products that would make more household fixes easier to be done at home.
