Seattle's Director of Economic Development, Susan Shannon, toured the facilities of Isotron and Modumetal on Thursday May 31, 2007, seeing firsthand the cutting edge technology that is helping to place Isotron and Modumetal on the list of emerging nanotechnology firms.

"I am most impressed with the vision, creativity and innovation of Isotron and Modumetal," said Seattle's Office of Economic Development Director Susan Shannon. "These small companies, headquartered in Seattle, represent the true spirit of invention that makes our community unique. They're making great leaps in the use of nanotechnology that may result in stronger, lighter weight materials, as well as cutting edge technology to protect our water supplies and communities."

Joining Shannon during the tour was Seattle City Councilmember Jan Drago and Damian Cordova, Staff Assistant to Congressman Jim McDermott.

About Modumetal
The mission of Modumetal ( http://www.Modumetal.com ) is to transform the energy-efficient production of steel and alloy materials. Modumetal s revolutionizing the design and just-in-time manufacture of parts for automobiles, aircraft, armor and building materials in a process-efficient way, the likes of which hasn't been realized since Ford invented the mass production line.

Modumetal will change manufacturing processes forever -- ultimately, replacing the traditional methods of creating steel and molding parts into products. By being able to literally "grow your own parts", the process of Modumetalization will fundamentally revolutionize design and netshape production of parts. With lower weight, better durability and a strength that is unmatched by steel, Modumetal is destined to become the standard against which all other materials are measured.

Isotron ( http://www.Isotron.net ) was founded in 1986 to lead the development of polymer and reactive materials technologies that address the worldwide need for environmental remediation and pollution prevention systems. To this end, the company has ongoing research and development in state of the art technologies for environmental remediation, cost-effective energy production and infrastructure protection technologies.
