INTEGRATED ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES, LTD.
ANNOUNCES NEW DISTRIBUTOR AGREEMENT WITH SKY BLUE INDUSTRIES FOCUSED ON TRANSPORTATION AND AUTO CARE INDUSTRIES
Company Also Provides Update to Distributor and Independent Sales Representative Network
LITTLE RIVER, S.C., September 25, 2012 – Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd. (“IET” or the “Company”) (OTC Bulletin Board: IEVM), announced today that Sky Blue Industries, Inc. (“Sky Blue”) has added the Company’s Excelyte® disinfecting solution and Catholyte Zero™ cleaning solutions to the Sky Blue product offerings. Sky Blue is a manufacturer and distributor of chemicals and provides services to all aspects of the transportation and auto care industries. Sky Blue’s customers include regional/national auto and truck rental fleets, national transport carriers, transportation maintenance facilities, car dealerships and fast lube shops. Sky Blue primarily distributes products in Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming and Montana.
The Company’s sales network currently consists of four distributors and fourteen independent sales representatives that are developing territories in Utah, New Mexico, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, California, Nevada, North Dakota, Washington and Montana. The growth of this network remains an important component of the Company’s strategy to market and sell its solutions throughout the United States. The Company also has terminated its sales management services agreement with TrueLogix, LLC and will now use internal resources to manage and recruit independent sales representatives related to the sale of its solutions.
David LaVance, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented “Sky Blue has extensive experience in selling to the various segments of the transportation and auto care industries. I believe there is a tremendous opportunity for Excelyte® and Catholyte Zero™ solutions throughout these industries ranging from the cleaning and disinfecting of passenger cars to the cleaning and disinfecting of long haul trucks. We are continuing to expand our network of distributors and independent sales representatives and believe that our decision to internally manage these groups will provide the Company with a more efficient and profitable process as we continue our growth.”
Steven P. Griffin, President of Sky Blue, observed “Sky Blue has a long standing tradition of distributing quality chemicals and equipment to the transportation and auto care industries. The growth in bacteria and virus outbreaks has created the need to disinfect automobiles and trucks, especially those vehicles that are rented to the general public and those involved in produce and food hauling. Other than the Excelyte® and Catholyte Zero™ solutions, I do not believe that any product currently exists that is both effective and free of harmful residue and/or unpleasant scents. The Excelyte® and Catholyte Zero™ solutions allow us to offer our customers an effective, non-toxic, environmentally responsible alternative to hazardous chemicals traditionally prevalent in commercial use. ”
