Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 17, 2005--Emergency Filtration
Products Inc. (EFP) (OTCBB: EMFP - News )
today announced that it is producing NanoMask filters
at its new production facility in Henderson, Nev.
EFP's production crew is applying nanoparticles to
precut filters and packaging them hermetically. Packaged
filters, along with masks received from the company's
Taiwanese manufacturer, will be shipped to distributors
and other customers shortly. The company's immediate
goal is to clear the substantial backlog that has
been caused by an increase in demand for the NanoMask
and the NanoMask filters.
As previously stated, the company's initial production
plans call for enhancing the filters at the rate of
approximately 500,000 per week. To meet the anticipated
demand, EFP has ordered approximately 7 million precut
filters. The company expects to take scheduled weekly
deliveries of the filters through February 2006. EFP
has ordered an additional 300,000 NanoMask shells from
its Taiwanese manufacturer and expects delivery by
December 2005. Current orders suggest that customers
are purchasing approximately 20 filters for every mask.
"Now that we have our production facility in Henderson
operating, we hope to clear our continuously growing
backlog of orders for the NanoMask and NanoMask filters
over the course of the next few weeks," said Douglas
K. Beplate, president and CEO, EFP. "Additionally,
we are currently in negotiations with several international
distributors to address the inquiries for the NanoMask
that we are receiving from other countries."
