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
