January 2018 : Prelam expands its presence in China

Moncton, January 9, 2018 – Luc Jalbert, co-founder of Prelam, will be embarking on a trade mission to China organized by Opportunities New Brunswick from January 13 to 20, 2018. The visit will also serve as an occasion to officially launch certain Prelam products for sale in several major Chinese retail chains.

“Our products Just’a Drop and Just’a Spray are on sale in two major retail chains that sell products throughout China, including Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. For Prelam, these agreements are a good way to start exporting to China, but they are only the beginning”, explains Luc Jalbert.

Mr. Jalbert will take advantage of his trip to China to visit the stores that sell Prelam’s products and continue discussions with his Chinese distributor.

“During this trip, we want to solidify our relation with our current distributor, expand our distribution network and meet with other big players in the retail business. We also hope, at some point, to be able to promote our products to online retailers. Opportunities New Brunswick is an unparalleled ally in this adventure”.

The Chinese retailers that will be offering Prelam products in 2018 include:

Prelam also wants to promote its industrial products and services (Prelam Solutions), its medical products (stomie), as well as a brand new line of beauty products, LUKY (http://lukyyou.com/), to the Chinese business community.

Solution to Nasty Bathroom Smells

Montreal native Luc Jalbert knows a thing or two about nasty bathroom smells and has spent the best part of a decade doing something about it. Today the co-owner of Prelam Enterprises Ltd., a household products business in Moncton NB, is introducing a new spray he has developed to deal with the problem and it is on the shelves of Jean Coutu pharmacies throughout Quebec.

Just ‘a Spray toilet bowl odor eliminator, when sprayed into the toilet bowl, immediately forms a film on top of the water that seals in whatever is dropped into the toilet bowl, eliminating bad smells and replacing them with fragrant ones made from scents purchased from major perfume houses in Europe.

Launched in Quebec and the Maritimes, Just ‘a Spray is packaged and marketed as an upscale product for homes, offices and travel and will be available online within the coming weeks. A national sampling program is planned and the all Canadian made product will be sold nation-wide by summer. The first of Prelam’s products using the same water seal technology, Just ‘ Drop has, to date, sold over six million units in Canada and globally.

Moncton Businessman Jumps off 876-foot Bridge
MONCTON, NB – A Moncton businessman will take the jump this weekend! It is not every day that one gets to witness someone jumping off a bridge is it? Especially an 875 foot one, but on October 17th over 200, 000 people worldwide will gather for this years International Bridge event to be able to witness just that.

Bridge Day is the largest extreme sports event and the largest gathering of BASE jumpers in the world held on the third Saturday in October every year in Fayetteville, West Virginia, USA. 450 jumpers, hundreds of rappellers, and up to 200,000 spectators are expected to attend this year’s Bridge Day on Saturday, October 17, 2009. The New River Gorge Bridge, 876′ tall and the world’s second longest single arch bridge, is the launch point for at least six hours (9am-3pm EDT) of legal, safe BASE jumps. Our local area CEO and business owner Don Goguen will be one of this year’s jumpers. For some it will be a once in a lifetime experience to see but for Don Goguen, well, it is the dive of a life time…..
That is how local Moncton area resident, CEO and co-founder of Prelam Enterprises,manufacturer of “just a Drop” Odor eliminator feels and he is counting the days until it will happen. Don Goguen, an avid sky-diver and CEO of Prelam Enterprises, producer of the Just a Drop bathroom freshener says he planned this trip to West Virginia to take part in the annual base jump from the New River Gorge Bridge in Fayetteville and join some 450 plus jumpers in this year’s event to bring awareness internationally. Coverage of the jumpers will be on National TV such as CNN and CBC. Photographers and journalists from all over the globe were there last year to cover such an event and this year marks the 30th anniversary so we expect an even larger turnout. Most jumpers aim for dry ground but not our Don. He is donning his snorkel and taking a big spash! He will be heading
directly into the water, one of very few who will be diving into the lake this year. Most who land in the water do so by accident, but not Don. He will be prepared, snorkel gear and all.
Don is owner and co-founder of Prelam Enterprises Inc. who produce a product called Just a Drop. In Canada, the product is sold in most of the major retailers plus supermarkets and pharmacies from St. Jonn’s to Vancouver. It is also sold in the United States. Advertising and publicity stunts like this one has generated interest and he has managed to attract interest from about 20 more countries including China, Ireland and the Barbadoes.
Skydiver and businessman Don Goguen, says “We certainly plan on jumping again along with sponsoring this world class event, and Just a Drop will naturally be along for the ride” Just a drop, one drop in the toilette eliminates embarrassing odors before they start by trapping the gasses below the surface. International events like this are bringing awareness to a product that can help every household and any individual with problems such as IBS, Crones and colitis or just plain eliminate the embarrassment of having to go anywhere, or anytime.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 8, 2005
Prelam Launches Revolutionary “Just A Drop” Bathroom Odor Neutralizer
Moncton, New Brunswick – Two entrepreneurs in Moncton, NB, have literally taken time to smell the roses and are on their way to parlaying the moment into a multi-million dollar business against the likes of well recognized names like S.C. Johnson and Proctor & Gamble. Their new product: Just A Drop, a tiny sweet smelling item that will revolutionize what we’ve come to think of as bathroom air fresheners.
Luc Jalbert and Don Goguen, owners of Prelam Enterprises Inc., are convinced this product, which they introduced at a major trade show in Toronto last November, will revolutionize the way people use the bathroom! It has just hit the shelves of Wal-Mart stores across Canada and re-orders are already coming in.
What makes this product unique is both what it does and how it is packaged and used.
Unlike air fresheners that mask bathroom odors, Just A Drop- virtually suppresses them at the source. One drop of the product is put in the toilet bowl before use. It immediately creates a seal trapping in any smells before they are flushed away.
According to Jalbert, “the results we have gotten from early focus testing of this product tell us we have a winner. It is in a small, unobtrusive bottle, is remarkably easy to use and is sufficiently portable it can be taken with you when you travel. It is also extremely helpful to suffers of Crohn’s Disease and similar ailments.”
