Industrial Nanotech, Inc. Announces Expansion into Botswana

NAPLES, FL | Posted on April 30th, 2008

The president of Megaros Industrial Products Inc. Mr. James Umekwe, in collaboration with the founding members of Copper Sunset Trading 440 (Pty) Ltd, Brad Emmett and Mark Pringle, commented, "We realize the true value and benefits that the Nansulate product range will provide to this thriving economy within the industrial and commercial sectors. We are securing strategic business partners through the extension of existing channels of trade and by the creation of new opportunities."

Botswana is regarded by most economists as one of Africa's major success stories. Since gaining independence, it has long maintained one of the highest economic growth rates in the world, averaging approximately 9% per year over a 33 year period and moving from the third poorest nation in 1966 to being an "upper middle income" country by the time it celebrated its pearl anniversary in 1996.

"We consider Africa an important part of the world and we are pleased with the progress that Megaros and Copper Sunset Trading have been making," stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. of Operations & Marketing for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "They received their first shipment in March and have been working with the US Consulate office in Cape Town on business strategies to expand the market for Nansulate in this region rich with opportunity."
