Emergency Filtration Products Signs NanoMask Distributor for Wholesale and Retail Markets in the United States and Southeast Asia


HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 28, 2005--Emergency Filtration Products Inc. (EFP) (OTCBB: EMFP) today announced that it has signed a non-exclusive distribution agreement with Manteca, Calif.-based 2H Distributors (http://www.2hdistributors.com/) to distribute the company's NanoMask to both retail and wholesale market segments in the United States and internationally. 2H Distributors has already placed its initial stocking order of 10,000 NanoMasks and 50,000 replacement filters.

In the United States, 2H Distributors will launch a marketing campaign for the NanoMask, and will be seeking retail outlets throughout the country, with particular emphasis on marketing to airport retail stores that cater to customers flying to the Pacific Rim. Internationally, 2H Distributors' wholesale marketing plans entail forming partnerships with a number of consumer products distributors in Southeast Asian markets such as Vietnam and Thailand.

"I am excited not only about the potential market for the NanoMask, but perhaps more importantly, about its ability to help save lives in a time when the avian flu has been deemed -- by no lesser authority than the World Health Organization -- to have the potential to kill millions worldwide," said Douglas Heath, president, 2H Distributors.

"The recent concern about the H5N1 virus, better known as the avian flu, has sparked a great deal of interest in our NanoMask," said Douglas K. Beplate, president, EFP. "While we have been quietly selling this product to consumers who have requested it, we have made no effort to launch a large-scale campaign for this product. Instead, we believe that our interests will be better served by entering into distribution agreements such as this one with 2H Distributors, as well as pursuing large corporate and retail opportunities."
