Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging global leader in nanotechnology, announced today that it has awarded African distribution rights for its Nansulate® product line to Megaros Industrial Products.
Since 1995, Maryland-based Megaros Industrial Products has cultivated a significant track record in the engineering, industrial products, and specifically in high tech coatings. Its projects include public works, including those in association with the Maryland Highway Administration.
"We are very excited to begin our alliance with Industrial Nanotech and feel their products can have a lasting impact in Africa. Our efforts will be focused on both the industrial and residential areas," said James Umekwe, President, Megaros Industrial Products, Inc. "We feel that Nansulate has great potential in industrial markets like oil & gas, petrochemical and manufacturing to decrease energy use, protect equipment and decrease carbon emissions. On the residential side, we look forward to introducing a product that provides an economical means to keep homes cooler, thus improving quality of life. We look to make Nansulate a household name, and, as our business grows, to offer employment and economic opportunities throughout Africa."
Industrial Nanotech and Megaros see areas of economic opportunity in many parts of Africa. For instance, Botswana and South Africa are two of Africa's most successful economies. South Africa has access to financial capital, numerous markets, skilled labor, and first world infrastructure in much of the country. Botswana's capital and largest city, Gaborone, is one of the world's fastest growing cities. Nigeria sits on one of the largest proven oil reserves in the world and has the highest population among nations in Africa, with one of the fastest-growing economies in the world.
"We welcome Megaros Industrial Products to our network of international distributors," states Francesca Crolley, VP of Operations and Marketing for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "We are excited to enter the African market and see many opportunities for our nanotechnology-based coatings to provide energy savings, corrosion resistance, and improve health conditions by keeping buildings and dwellings cooler despite the common lack of air conditioning, as well as provide protection from mold growth and encapsulation of lead-based paints. We look forward to continued expansion in this region."
