Emergency Filtration Products To Increase Production of NanoMask to Meet Growing Demand Caused by Avian Flu Threat


HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 10, 2005--Emergency Filtration Products, Inc. (EFP) (OTCBB: EMFP) today announced that it is planning to increase production of its NanoMask due to a surge in demand. The company has placed an initial order for the production of 500,000 filters from a West Coast based supplier. The filters, which are expected to be manufactured within the next several weeks, will then be shipped to EFP's Henderson, Nevada facility where they will be enhanced with nanoparticles and packaged.

Concurrently, the company expects to receive 50,000 mask shells from Taiwan and has placed an initial order for an additional 100,000 mask shells from its Taiwanese supplier. At the first stage of its production ramp up, EFP expects be able to assemble up to 50,000 masks and nano-enhance 200,000 filters per week. The final assembly will be done in Henderson as soon as EFP receives the filters and mask shells. EFP plans to further increase its production capacity as demand dictates.

"Over the past few weeks we have experienced a strong increase in orders for the NanoMask, which we believe is due to the growing threat of a possible avian flu pandemic," said Douglas K. Beplate, President, EFP. "As a result, and due to a number of potentially large orders from a number of medical products distributors in the United States and abroad, we are gearing up production capacity to meet the growing demand for the NanoMask."
