Emergency Filtration Products, Inc. (EFP) (OTCBB: EMFP) today announced that it had named Philip Dascher as its Chief Executive Officer. Douglas K.

Emergency Filtration Products Names Philip Dascher as CEO

HENDERSON, NV | Posted on January 30th, 2007

Mr. Dascher is an entrepreneur who founded and built five successful companies in his business career. In 1972, Mr. Dascher founded three apparel companies. Cumulative sales volume exceeded $80 million that was generated by sales to national retailers, department stores and specialty store chains throughout the United States and Europe. Mr. Dascher sold his interest in these companies in 1979.

In 1985, after having left the industry for a number of years, Mr. Dascher founded two apparel companies, Pelle Leather Ltd. and General Clothing Co., Ltd., with offices in New York, Dallas and Milan. Sales volume reached $48 million, selling to national retailers, department stores and specialty store chains in the United States and Italy. Mr. Dascher divested himself of his interests in these companies in 1996, and has been managing his private investment portfolio and working on a variety of consulting assignments since.

"I am pleased that Philip Dascher has joined EFP," said Douglas K. Beplate, President, EFP. "Phil's successful track record as a founder, builder and manager of companies operating in many different countries and in a highly competitive industry is precisely what we need at EFP at this point in our development." Mr. Beplate went on to add, "Besides managing the company on a day-to-day basis, Phil will upgrade the company's systems and controls, as well as implement an effective sales and marketing program designed to create profitable revenue growth."

"I am delighted to have this opportunity to work with EFP and look forward to building the company with substantial market share in a wide array of filtration products," said Philip Dascher, CEO, EFP. "The first order of business will be to finalize FDA approval for our NanoMask products, a necessary prerequisite that I believe will differentiate us from our competitors." Mr. Dascher also said, "As we work through the FDA application process, we will institute the management systems and controls necessary to position this company to gain significant market share for all its filtration products in governmental, institutional, retail and consumer markets."
