Veteran entrepreneur Peter J. Burns III is turning a unique relationship with the Vietnam-based HI-TEK company into an opportunity for investors to help ship Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from Vietnam to the United States.
For four decades, Peter J. Burns III, now based in Southern California, has started up, expanded or partnered with more than 150 businesses all over the globe. The serial entrepreneur has worked with HI-TEK in a variety of business capacities in the past, especially in the travel industry.
“We’ve had a great, exclusive relationship with Thomas Johnson of HI-TEK, and this business opportunity with PPE is an extension of that,” Burns says.
Johnson is chairman and CEO of HI-TEK, a company he co-founded 25 years ago. He has actively provided technical guidance for online search technology, internet advertising, social networking, tracking and optimizing performance metrics, blockchain technology and e-commerce for the global travel and tourism market.
Recently, the HI-TEK software development team and their strategic global technology partners have produced numerous proprietary e-commerce and mobile travel booking applications that accept digital Travel tokens (HI-TEKCOIN) as a form of crypto payment.
HI-TEK and PPE
For decades, HI-TEK has been an authorized business partner with a unique relationship to the Vietnamese government. The company developed the first internet (.vn) domain registration platform in 2003, online travel booking engine in 2005, and secured visa registration software in 2018.
The company has been recognized by the Vietnam government for significant contributions to the country’s economy.
Working closely with the Vietnamese Ministry of Trade, HI-TEK has produced an online database of all Vietnamese businesses. That allows for direct access to major manufacturers, factories, and business owners.
HI-TEK has worked with the Vietnam government to create partnerships with PPE glove factories and to ensure reliable delivery of quality Nitrile glove products to clients worldwide.
Johnson’s company arranged a meeting between the Ministry of Trade and the top five glove manufacturers, and the result was production of extra PPE to support the high demand in the United States’ hospitals and medical clinics.
Vietnam, incidentally, has been a COVID-19 success story, having recorded relatively few cases and zero deaths, according to a BBC report.
HI-TEK and Peter J. Burns III
Peter J. Burns III is combining his exclusive relationship with HI-TEK and Burns Funding, his “customized-funding-solutions” company that offers primary credit lines, bridge loans and shelf corporations.
“This is an amazing opportunity that is available because of the relationship I have with Thomas Johnson,” Burns says. “HI-TEK has a direct pipeline to manufacturing in Vietnam. And Vietnam has been working for years to be an alternative to China. Vietnam also has better quality that China and is less expensive.”
Several VA hospitals in the United States and many doctors’ offices and nursing homes have already received these highly needed nitrile gloves. This is a unique opportunity to successfully invest in PPE while providing life-saving equipment to our frontline healthcare professionals.
