Integral Technologies creates ElectriPlast Corp. to manage commercialization, sales and marketing of the company's lines of conductive plastics.

Integral Technologies Inc. (Bellingham, Wash., USA), maker of the ElectriPlast line of electrically conductive resins, announced on Aug. 15 the formation of ElectriPlast Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Integral that will function as the operating entity responsible for the commercialization, sales and marketing of ElectriPlast, Integral's patented line of conductive plastics.

The newly formed entity, based in Philadelphia, Pa., USA, will be directed byHerbert Reedman, a former automotive retail executive and recently appointed member to Integral's board, who will act as president and CEO of the newly formed ElectriPlast Corp.

"This is a strategic and very positive move for Integral," states Bill Robinson, chairman and CEO of Integral. "We are seeing accelerated demand in electrically conductive resins and we want to take full advantage of our position in this emerging market." In making the announcement, Reedman will take full command and control of Integral's coveted line of conductive resins, which includes more than 80 blends and is said to be the most comprehensive line of conductive plastics in the industry.

The announcement of the new ElectriPlast Corp. follows Integral's most recent product launch of ElectriPlast EP-CF/66, a polyamide (PA66) and nickel-plated carbon fiber composite and the latest in the line of ElectriPlast conductive resins from Integral.
