FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS RECEIVES APPROVAL FOR MEXICO
SIGNIFICANT NEW SALES TO NORTH SEA OIL CUSTOMER
VICTORIA, B.C., Mar. 23, 2006 – FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (AMEX: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), today announces that the country of Mexico has appoved the use of Magnetä, manufactured by the Company’s NanoChem (NCS) subsidiary, for agricultural application in the country of Mexico. The Company’s bio-polymers are utilized in agricultural nutrient uptake, oil industry scale prevention and as suspension agents in the detergent industry.
Daniel B. O’Brien, CEO states, “This is an important milestone for the agricultural division of our NCS subsidiary. With this approval, we can begin sales efforts through Mexican agricultural distributors making our Magnetä nutrient availability enhancer available to high value crops grown in Mexico. This product is already a strong contributor to our sales and profits in the USA, so we believe that the time and effort expended to gain Mexican approval will result in significant new business as Mexican growers become convinced of the value added by using Magnetä.”
“In other NCS news”, Mr. O’Brien reports, “our biodegradable scale inhibitor product has been specified for a new oilfield in the North Sea region. This will result in new revenue of approximately $240,000 annually beginning in second quarter 2006. NCS is actively supporting all of our customers in the North Sea as they bid for scale control contracts and hope to win more business each year with our unique advantages of performance and complete environmental safety.”
The NanoChem division continues to contribute substantially to sales and cash flow and, significant new opportunities have developed to further increase sales in this division. At the same time, opportunities to synergistically cross sell the products of all FSI divisions have generated leads to new business. NanoChem sales are much less seasonal than those of our WaterSavr and Flexible Solutions Ltd divisions which should lead to less volatile quarter over quarter sales figures in future.
