CENTERVILLE, MA � November 8, 2010 (Investorideas.com Newswire) - UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that shipments of its ViraTech UV-400 Air Purifier to its new European distributor Societe' Nema Citizen of Paris, France have commenced.
www.citizenfrance.com) is the largest distributor of Citizen Brand electronics in France, and also features a growing inventory of health and medical-related products available for distribution to retailers throughout much of Western Europe. The Company is well established and is providing an aggressive strategy designed to introduce the UV-400 to an existing consumer base utilizing extensive regional relationships and proven market penetration techniques.
"Early positive feedback supports our view that this order will be followed shortly with significant replenishment requests on an ongoing basis as we head into the winter cold and flu months," stated Jack Lennon, President of UV Flu Technologies. "Much of our initial shipment is slated for use as demonstration products specifically targeting fifty major catalog re-sellers. The distributor further supports these introductory efforts by offering a strong internet presence combined with a sizeable and knowledgeable sales force spread across the continent."
"We believe the European marketplace offers exceptional opportunities for us," said Mr. Lennon. "Europe has had incredible problems with MRSA, and other HAI's, or Hospital Associated Infections, which are bacterial strains that have grown impervious to antibiotics. In Wales recently, an outbreak of Legionnaires Disease brought the problem of poor air quality back as front page news. This disease is still widespread around the world, but experts believe it is usually misdiagnosed as pneumonia. The ViraTech UV-400 kills many of these types of airborne contaminants thereby minimizing their ability to spread, so we believe we can easily help reverse the possibility of dramatic increases in some of the most common, yet potentially deadly situations," said Mr. Lennon.
Further details regarding the Company's business, financial reports and agreements are filed as part of the Company's continuous public disclosure as a reporting issuer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") EDGAR database.
