Press Release: BioLargo completes first order to US Government for new products
SANTA ANA, CA – (October 22, 2013) – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB: BLGO) today announced that its Odor-No-More subsidiary has introduced a new line of odor and moisture control products to the US Government, and fulfilled its first order. The company now offers a series of pouch and canister designs that can be used to solidify liquids or absorb blood and other body fluids. The company will initially target medical providers but plans to expand into general industrial applications and first responders markets. The product line is being marketed under the brand Nature’s Best Solution®
Downeast Logistics, a certified “Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business” (SDVOSB), served as our distribution partner to facilitate our first order to the US Government. Downeast Logistics has operated for more than thirteen years, and will continue to offer our products through multiple channels of the US Government. Its designation as a SDVOSB places Downeast Logistics within a group of highly sought after vendors to the US government. Odor-No-More has registered, and is in the process of registering, itself as well as its products with several procurement agencies of the US Government.
"Being a Service-Disabled owned business with a successful 13 year history selling to the government, Downeast Logistics is a great partner to help launch our award winning technology into the Government sector. We are excited about this new selling channel and the future opportunities in it for our medical products in development, and hope to expand sales of these new products to the private sector through our subsidiary Clyra Medical,” stated BioLargo’s president, Dennis Calvert.
Sherry Doherty, Principal of Downeast Logistics, adds, “The canister solidifier products received positive feedback from all of the military hospital product evaluations we conducted, as its odor control capabilities are unique in the marketplace. We are waiting for procurement response on several bids we have submitted, and are excited about the scope of opportunities for these product lines within the US government.”
