In recent years, China’s demand for American-made products is increasing. Surveys reveal that authenticity and quality are the two main reasons for the growth of this demand. In China, western goods have long been synonymous with prestige and authenticity.
This is one reason why Neoteric, as the world’s original and most experienced light hovercraft manufacturer, is experiencing an expansion of its business in China.
But the other reason – the most important one - is the proficiency and enthusiasm of Neoteric’s agent, China Hai Pai Hovercraft, Ltd., located in Shanghai. Hai Pai Hovercraft is the leading hovercraft company in China and, under the dedicated direction of company President Mr. Huang Xiaogang, is conducting superior marketing efforts for Neoteric.
As one example, Mr. Huang recently arranged a Neoteric Hovercraft presentation for Vice-Minister of China’s Ministry of Civil Affairs, Mr. Gu ChaoXi, along with Major General WenPing Feng, Commander of the ZheJiang Military Region of the Chinese People's Liberation Army. The event took place in YiWu, a county-level city in ZheJiang Province.

Mr. Gu ChaoXi, China’s Vice-Minister of Civil Affairs (in black suit),
showed great interest in the YiWu Emergency Rescue Team’s Neoteric Hovercraft.
Major General WenPing Feng, Commander of the ZheJiang Military Region
of the Chinese People's Liberation Army and his accompanying personnel
were impressed with the performance of the rescue hovercraft.
Mr. Huang Xiaogang reports that everyone attending the demonstration was impressed by the hovercraft, particularly by its rescue features: high speed reverse thrust that enables it to brake, back up, spin and hover in place; searchlights; speaker; alarm system, etc.
YiWu is the perfect city for conducting this demonstration. Founded during the Qin Dynasty around 222 B.C., YiWu today is a thriving international trade city with the largest commodity market in China - well on its way to becoming the largest global supermarket in the world. The world-famous YiWu International Trade Market alone has 62,000 vendors and is estimated to have 40,000 visitors per day. As an interesting side note, more than 60% of the world’s Christmas decorations are made in YiWu.
Located about 300 miles from the East China Sea, YiWu is surrounded by mountains and has a mild climate, which has also helped it become a popular tourist destination.
The YiWu Emergency Rescue Team’s Neoteric Hovercraft is certainly not the only Neoteric craft in use in China – thanks to the efforts of Mr. Huang Xiaogang and Hai Pai Hovercraft, Ltd. Besides serving in rescue agencies, Neoteric Hovercraft are also used in tourism operations. For example, Sichuan Baichuan Tourism in TangShan City, Hebei Province owns two Model 3626 Neoteric Hovercraft. And Sichuan Baichuan Tourism in LuLiang City, Shanxi Province, owns one Model 3877 hovercraft … and their two additional Model 5854 6-passenger Neoteric craft will arrive there soon ...
The shipping container arrives at the Neoteric factory to export Yellow River Tourist Attractions’
two new hovercraft to China. By mid-October, the hovercraft will reach Neoteric’s agent in Shanghai,
then President Mr. Huang Xiaogang will deliver the craft to LuLiang.
Yellow River Tourist Attractions is increasing their fleet due to the popularity of the hovercraft. As a recent review on a travel site said, “Thrilling experience! I boarded a hovercraft to travel across the Yellow River … Wow, the hovercraft was fun and thrilling! It travelled both on land and water. We stopped at a sand bar where we could look at the views across the river.”
We at Neoteric eagerly anticipate a continuing mutually-beneficial relationship with China Hai Pai Hovercraft, Ltd. as the Asian market embraces the Neoteric Hovercraft.
