Industrial Nanotech, Inc. Announces Plan for Manufacturing Joint Venture in Italy
NAPLES, FL | Posted on April 30th, 2007
Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging global leader in nanotechnology, announced today that it has chosen Mercatus & Partners Group, of Rome, Italy as joint venture partners for a manufacturing facility in Italy to produce the Company's patented line of nanotechnology based coatings, Nansulate.
"Europe, the Middle East, and Asia represent three of our strongest markets," states Stuart Burchill, CEO of Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "The cost of shipping product from our manufacturing facility in Denver, Colorado, US to those high growth rate regions is becoming a limiting factor for our profit margins and pricing structure. Mercatus & Partners Group is well established in this region and will provide the business expertise and funding necessary for this venture in return for a minority interest in the manufacturing entity. I plan to meet with their CFO and our distributors from Greece, Italy, Turkey, the UAE, the Benelux, India, and England this summer to coordinate the project. Italy presents a tremendous opportunity as a location for manufacturing. The country is aggressively pursuing high tech manufacturing partnerships and is centrally located in the region, with easy access to ports and railroads to ship product."
Mercatus and Partners Group recently signed an agreement with Kylla Group BV, based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, to provide an equity investment of Euro 50 million in Kylla. Under the agreements, Kylla and Mercatus will work to provide added value solutions and promote technology transfer initiatives between European and United States based companies.
