UniKeep Joins The Edison Materials Technology Center

Garden Grove, CA | Posted on March 20th, 2007

UniKeep will work with EMTEC for technical coordination, business assistance, and commercialization support to garner new business opportunities in Ohio's industry, university, and government laboratory sectors.

Non-profit EMTEC is an organization designed to strengthen Ohio's industrial competitiveness in advanced energy, automotive, metals and castings, nanomaterials, polymers, composites, biomaterials, and other advanced materials markets.

"EMTEC is assisting UniKeep in our ongoing green product strategy and interest in emerging technologies for manufacturing development. I look forward to working with them to create new opportunities for UniKeep," said Ross Youngs, UniKeep CEO. "We were recently represented by EMTEC in Tokyo, Japan at the International NanoTech show," added Youngs.

According to the Lux Research report "Profiting from International Nanotechnology," worldwide nanotechnology investments have significantly increased over the past few years. In 2006, $12.4 billion was spent in nanotech R&D and over $50 billion worth of nano-enabled products were sold. EMTEC supports several small and medium sized companies in helping to develop market ready products using nanotechnology and/or the necessary infrastructural supply chain for nanotechnology-enabled products. As part of its support and assistance, EMTEC represented select member companies at the International NanoTech show in Tokyo. The representation is a result of EMTEC's ongoing relationship with technology entities and research institutes in Ohio's sister state in Japan (Saitama Prefecture).

"The opportunity to present UniKeep's products in the International NanoTech venue provided an excellent supply chain related opportunity to those involved in nanotechnology products. UniKeep's binders and other UniKeep products are environmentally-friendly and are full life cycle compliant with global green strategies. This is very important, particularly in Japan and other countries where product environmental impact is of significant consumer, business, and political focus," stated David Swenson, Vice President Business Initiative for EMTEC.

UniKeep offers document and media products for presentation, organization, storage and marketing. The product line includes the UniKeep™ Binders which are fully enclosed and stackable, preventing tear-out, resisting moisture, PVC-free and most are metal free for easy security screening; Disc binders, disc wallets and Safety-sleeve® disc pages in 100% archival-safe polypropylene; Accessories; and the EnvyPak™ line of archival envelopes and marketing mailers.

About UniKeep LLC
UniKeep™ brand binders, accessories and clear poly EnvyPak™ mailing products allow users to make environmentally-sound choices for storage and presentation without sacrificing durability or functionality. Their polypropylene products require as much as 30% fewer materials to manufacture than traditional vinyl and this avoids the toxic waste generated in both the manufacture and elimination of PVC. The standard UniKeep binder is the only binder that is truly curbside recyclable and the Enviro-Binder is manufactured with over 85% post consumer content. By special order, EnvyPak envelopes can be custom manufactured using 100% compostable and biodegradable PLA corn poly, a renewable resource bioplastic.

UniKeep products are available nationwide in xpedx/Arvey retail stores and through office products or promotional products dealers.
