- Pushing forward business in the Philippines, US and Saudi Arabia
24 hour no-touch no-brush carwash makes your car, small or big, clean and shine all day long
Come In Wash, which has established itself as a leader in no-touch, no-brush automatic car washing, is taking a leap forward as a global company by showing off its excellent technology overseas. After launching the brand, the company opened a branch in Manila, Philippines for the first time in five years, and this year plans to promote Come In Wash’s outstanding technology in Saudi Arabia, Japan, and the United States. No-touch no-brush is gaining unrivaled popularity in the industry as it uses eco-friendly detergents, has excellent cleaning power, does not damage the car, and can be washed regardless of the season by using high-temperature water all year round. In addition, the company is developing detergents that do not use any chemicals, beyond detergents made with eco-friendly raw materials. Come In Wash CEO Sukwon Yang says “We are currently developing nanobubble technology that uses raw materials extracted from fruits, etc. or can be cleaned with only water.” Nanobubble technology is also used in solar panel cleaning, and when development is completed, it is expected to take a leap forward as an eco-friendly company with excellent technology.
Taking over the overseas car wash market
Promoting the excellence of Korean car washes to the world
Yang says “In the United States, the car wash market is in retreat because there is a perception that non-contact methods do not wash cars properly. Accordingly, we had expectations that we would be successful if we entered the market using no-touch, no-brush automatic car washing technology with high cleaning power.” The United States has a larger number of large vehicles than Korea. The company may be in an advantageous position there with its recognized facilities and technology. Next year, the company will also plan to open an office in Japan. “What we sell overseas is not simply car washing machines, but a car washing method that only we can create. I am confident that this is meaningful and proud because it is recognition of Korea’s outstanding technological prowess.”
A vehicle pollution analysis-based carwash tech for a patent
Collaboration with major gas stations
Come In Wash has completed application registration for its third patent this year, a method and system for providing car wash services based on vehicle pollution analysis. The company has also registered patent applications in 2021 and 2022, achieving the feat of filing patent applications for three consecutive years and becoming the only company in the car wash industry to possess three types of patents. This technology analyzes vehicle images to check highly contaminated areas and spends more time intensively washing the car, allowing you to experience more detailed and perfect car wash quality. Meanwhile, Come in Wash is providing services in the Seoul and Gyeonggi area through collaboration with major gas stations. Come in Wash HD Hannam, which opened last July, is collaborating with Come In Wash Hwaier and Hyundai Oilbank. Come in Wash HD Incheon Unseo opened on September 2, and is scheduled to expand to Jincheon, Gumi, Hwaseong Namyang, Busan Haeundae, Gamgok Janghowon, Yeoju, and Samseong-dong gas stations this year. Come In Wash won the Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy Award in the technology innovation category in 2022, the Minister of SMEs and Startups Award in the technology innovation category in 2021, won the grand prize in the National Assembly technology innovation category in 2020, acquired international standards ISO9001 and ISO14001, and received international standard certification from ORIAN, USA. The company holds a patent for an automatic car wash device, was registered as a venture business through due diligence by the Korea Credit Guarantee Fund, was recognized by the Ministry of Science and ICT’s research and development department, and received certification from the Ministry of Environment for its self-developed detergent.
