Since the foundation of TOKO more than 100 years ago, the company has been the specialist for surfaces and produces various waxes – from beginner products to ab-solute high-tech waxes. TOKO and Zeintra – a successful partnership. “We benefit from an enriching cooperation,” says Udo Raunjak, Head of Research and Development, about the new brush developments. The offer from Zeintra AG quickly convinced him. “I was on site and enthusiastic: The production in Wil is up to date. We derive real added value from the short distances in the development of innovative products”.
TOKO has been producing wax for decades that makes skis and boards faster for beginners and professionals. There is a whole science behind the question of which wax is suitable for which conditions and how it is applied. When used correctly, skis and boards glide more easily with TOKO wax.
The success proves TOKO right. With six victories and a podium finish, Swiss and TOKO athlete Fanny Smith dominated the 2019 women’s ski cross season. In the final in Veysonnaz she won gold! Speed ski legend Simone Origone also achieved a great result: On 22 March 2019 he became World Champion in Vars for the sixth time – with 228,862 km/h!
In close cooperation with TOKO, the Zeintra AG team developed three new, unique brushes for the incorporation of TOKO wax. Different brushes for different temperatures. Cold. Warm. Universal. “We want to make progress. We love it when our partners deliver promptly and in outstanding quality. Without ifs or buts,” says Udo Raunjak. The demand for quality in ski racing is high. TOKO and Zeintra not only withstand this pressure and the immense demands, they even drive it forward. This makes for innovation and the pleasure of working.
Last season the first service people used the Zeintra innovation. “A good feeling is crucial for success. The athletes, whose skis were treated with the Zeintra brush, smiled in the starting house. They felt safe,” Mr Raunjak smiles. The ski, treated with TOKO wax and Zeintra brush, glides faster. A successful model!
Zeintra continues to work on the best combination of wax and brush. “Our ambition makes the difference,” says Dominik Rothenberger of Zeintra. “We continue to develop. For the best feeling of success!
