Hands-free hygiene

posted Dec 29, 2012, 8:45 PM by Coway Malaysia

Satisfied customers sing praises of Coway Bidet for providing hygienic cleansing that is comfortable and affordable

HAVING a bidet in the toilet means convenient cleansing at the press of a button and it’s more hygienic than using tissue. Not only that but with Woongjin Coway, it’s affordable as one can either buy outright or rent the bidet.


Below, a few customers tell of their experiences after installing the Coway Bidet in their homes.


Housewife Tan Hui LIan, 77, Selangor
For an elderly person like me, this intelligent toilet tool brings independence for such a private matter. Many elderly people, due to physical limitations, cannot reach down to clean themselves properly. So Coway Digital Bidet BA-07R is convenient and handy for cleansing, especially after a bowel movement. Besides the dryer function, the water pressure is adjustable for a better cleansing. This product also enables us to keep our bathroom clean and dry. It surely is an innovative invention.

Interior designer Tan Nan Gee, 36, Penang
I installed Coway Bidet at home so that my children can wash themselves after bowel movement.Now my kids can clean themselves and I don’t have to be around to assist them.
My office and my parents have also installed Coway Bidet. Everyone is pleased about how useful the product is.
I also decided to install a few manual bidets in a nursing home for the elderly. This will be a convenience for the inmates, especially those who have mobility problems.



Account assistant Thamilvaani, 22, Selangor
“I would like to say that Coway Bidet is an absolutely astonishing product! With its many features to suit all needs, Coway Bidet BA-06A is a more practical way to stay hygienic and comfortable than using a hand-held bidet. Initially, my family was sceptical but now, they confess that they love how convenient Coway Bidet is.

Travel agency operations manager Fizal Kamarudin @ Fauzi, 32, Putrajaya
This product is so affordable and gives us full satisfaction. Its twin nozzles function enables us to cleanse our private parts and we even have a choice of water pressure. It only takes a few tries to get familiar with it. Say goodbye to rough toilet paper and irritated skin, because cleaning yourself with Coway Bidet is the way to go. Now, I can’t live without it.”



Beauty centre owner Gigi Ang, 35, Penang
I had Digital Coway Bidet installed in my beauty salon. After they tried it, all my staff members purchased one for their own homes too. Apart from catering to all our toilet needs, Coway Bidet also keeps our toilet clean and dry.
Many of my customers are impressed as most beauty centres don’t provide such a facility. My beauty centre is more popular than ever.”

Anonymous, 49, Selangor
Coway Digital Bidet BA-07 gives me a feeling of personal hygiene confidence that I can barely put in words. I am obese, so my movements are quite restricted. Before I installed the bidet, I found it almost impossible to clean myself after I use the toilet.
But with Coway Bidet, it’s hassle-free cleaning after a bowel movement. Thanks for an awesome product!” 

Tan Boon Kwa, SJKC Kuen Cheng II, Kuala Lumpur
First, we are very grateful for the Coway Bidet sponsorship and educational talk. Our students and teachers have found the bidet very useful.
Besides having dry toilets in the school now, the students too have learnt about good toilet culture and personal hygiene habits. A million thanks to Woongjin Coway!”

          Woongjin Coway plans Bursa listing

          Business Times 25 June 2012

          KUALA LUMPUR: South Korea's well-being household electronics appliances maker Woongjin Coway plans to float its Malaysian unit on the local bourse by 2015.

          Woongjin Coway (M) Sdn Bhd managing director James Park Jae Young said the company has already started the groundwork for the initial public offering on Bursa Malaysia.

          "We hope that it will be realised in another three years time," he told Business Times in a recent interview.

          Malaysia is Coway's fourth overseas market after China, Japan and Thailand. 


          Established in May 2006, Coway Malaysia is now one of the most profitable within the group's operations abroad.

          "We are the strongest overseas branch outside of South Korea," he said.

          The company posted sales revenue of RM111 million last year and Park is optimistic the revenue will increase to RM160 million this year.

          It has attracted 100,000 customers so far and its customer base is expected to double next year.
          Currently, Coway Malaysia has 16-products line-up, consisting of water purifier, air purifier, electronic and manual bidet, water softener, outdoor filter, with more products waiting to be rolled out into the market.

          Park said the company's strongest revenue comes from water purifiers. However, the bidet is also expected to contribute significantly towards its earnings this year.

          The company expects to sell at least 6,000 bidets this year, which is a marked improvement from the 1,000 units they sold last year.

          "It's a 500 per cent increase from what we sold last year and we are confident of achieving it as more Malaysians are now willing to try the bidets which do literally everything for you like washing and what not," he said.

          For water purifiers, Coway Malaysia holds the number one position in the country with over 3,000 units sold in a month, while the air purifiers are among the top two in terms of sales.

          The company is also looking at expanding its branches and staff. 

          "We have over 50 branches nationwide and more than 2,500 staff to service our product lines," he said.
          Park said the company has set aside RM7 million budget for advertising and promotion of its products, of which RM5 million will be going towards the promotion of bidets alone.

          Established in 1989, Korea Stock Exchange-listed Woongjin Coway has successfully maintained the number one position in water purifier market in South Korea for over 22 years.

          Coway Malaysia upbeat on triple-digit growth

          Business Times 1 April 2011

          SOUTH Korean home-wellness appliances maker Woongjin Coway (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is banking on product awareness to drive a triple-digit growth in its customer base and sales this year.

          Managing director James Park said for this year, the company's customers and sales are projected to double to 100,000 customers and RM80 million respectively.

          Coway Malaysia, which has plans to float its shares on Bursa Malaysia by 2014, aims to be a market leader by next year.

          "We have been in the Malaysian market for five years, while our competitors have been here for 15-20 years.

          "(But) we sell 5,000 units of products every month, which already make us the number one in the market," he told a news conference after the signing of sponsorship agreement with Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) for Coway Clean Air Zone Campaign at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang yesterday.

          The signing ceremony was witnessed by the Health Ministry's director of disease control unit Dr Lokman Hakim Sulaiman. Coway Malaysia was represented by Park and MAHB by its managing director, Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad.

          KLIA is the first partner under the campaign, in which Coway Malaysia sponsors 30 air purifiers that cost about RM120,000. The company plans to install more air purifiers at the KLIA, and later at other major international airports in the country.

          Coway Malaysia, which has so far invested some RM100 million in the country, has earmarked another RM10 million for advertising and promotion this year.

          PENGELUAR dan pengedar barangan keperluan rumah terutama penapis air dan pembersih udara dari Korea, Woojin Coway (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Coway Malaysia) menyasarkan untuk menjadi peneraju utama di Malaysia dalam segmen berkenaan tahun depan.

          Pengarah Urusannya, James Park Jae-Young, berkata sasaran itu disandarkan kepada prestasi cemerlang serta jumlah jualan amat memberangsangkan sejak syarikat meneroka pasaran di Malaysia.

          “Usia Coway Malaysia masih muda iaitu lima tahun berbanding pesaing kami yang sudah berada di Malaysia antara 15 hingga 20 tahun, tetapi pelanggan percaya dan yakin dengan kualiti produk kami.

          “Disebabkan itu, kami percaya dapat menguasai pasaran di Malaysia tahun depan, sekali gus mengatasi pesaing sedia ada ketika ini.

          “Malah, berdasarkan jumlah jualan setiap bulan yang mencecah 5,000 unit, kami percaya kami sudah menguasai pasaran dalam segmen berkenaan,” katanya pada sidang media selepas majlis menandatangani perjanjian penajaan pemasangan alat pembersih udara antara Coway Malaysia dan Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) di Lapangan Terbang Antarbangsa Kuala Lumpur, Sepang, semalam.

          Majlis turut dihadiri Ketua Pengarah Bahagian Kawalan Penyakit, Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia, Dr Lokman Hakim Sulaiman dan Pengarah Urusan MAHB, Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad serta Pengurus Besar Kanan (Operasi) MAHB, Datuk Azmi Murad.

          James Park berkata, Coway Malaysia juga bercadang membina kilang pengeluaran produk terbabit di negara ini.

          Sementara itu, KLIA dipilih menjadi rakan kongsi pertama Coway Malaysia dalam Kempen Zon Udara Bersih dengan menerima 30 unit pembersih udara bernilai RM120,000 dan akan dipasang di Balai Ketibaan serta Balai Berlepas di Bangunan Satelit, KLIA.

          “Pembersih udara itu direka khas untuk menghalang virus selesema, bakteria dan bau busuk dalam udara sehingga 2,650 kaki persegi,” katanya.

          Pengarah Urusan Coway Malaysia, James Park Jae-Young berkata, pengiktirafan itu membuktikan produk Coway memenuhi piawaian halal dan secara tidak langsung memudahkan pengguna Islam membuat keputusan untuk membeli produk keluaran syarikat itu.

          Katanya, syarikat Coway sudah menjemput Jakim untuk menyertai rombongan penelitian ke pusat penyelidikan dan kilang Coway berpangkalan di Korea.

          “Sebagai pengeluar penapis air dalam bilik terbesar sejagat, pengawalan kualiti kami yang ketat berjaya menepati piawaian dari segi agama dan kebersihan yang ditetapkan Jakim. Tambahan pula, pusat penyelidikan Coway dilantik Persatuan Kualiti Air sebagai makmal ujian sejak 2009.

          “Ia adalah sebuah persatuan yang mewakili industri rawatan air bagi kediaman, komersial dan perindustrian untuk menetapkan piawaian bagi kemudahan rawatan air,” katanya dalam kenyataan di Kuala Lumpur.

          Sistem penapisan Osmosis Songsang Coway yang memenuhi piawaian halal bertaraf antarabangsa boleh didapati dengan pilihan rekaan atas meja dan berdiri.

          SNSD to model water purifiers for “Woongjin Coway”

          posted Mar 12, 2011, 9:43 AM by Coway Malaysia   [ updated May 27, 2011, 9:37 AM ]

          With the water purification market expanding, Woongjin Coway believed that SNSD would be the perfect model in expanding the consumer base of their company, especially since the group is much loved by all age groups.

          One representative stated, “In the past, our models included Kim Jung Eun, Song Hye Gyo, Lee Young Ae, and others. With the market expanding, we decided that SNSD would be a good fit since they’re popular with a variety of age groups.”

          They continued, “Since Woongjin is #1 in the industry, our promotion plan is one that can only be done by a company of such stature. By creatively using the unique charms of each of the nine members, we’ll be releasing advertisements that show how our water purifiers are set apart from the rest.”
