and ElectriPlast’s Connection
with next Generation Batteries...

Alright, herewith yet another quick note before reading the news of the week:
First of all, Integral has brought on board a new board member, a Washington DC lobbyist. At first glance it is easy to see an angle here, but at second glance, I decided to take a look at, and ask questions about, the caliber of our new associate, Mr. James Wise. Jim has been described as a very, very wise man by some of the ElectriPlast Blog's (EB) sources who know better. His relationships with both the halls of government power and industry are well founded. Yes he is a DC lobbyist, but, like lawyers, mechanics, and investors -- there are truly good ones and exceptionally bad (as in soulless) ones. Personal politics aside, Jim, as more than a few trusted sources confirmed, is one of the good ones. He works to promote change for the right reasons, on the right side of issues. So, his announcement to the board is largely the focus of this press release, and the comments above are my two cents on it before hand -- but as you read the announcement, keep in mind the words "Access" and "Connections" as both have a place in the larger strategic picture...
Secondly, there was news that highlighted an event scheduled to take place later in May 2015. This event is called "BATTCON 2015". It is a convention where Batteries will rule the day, and in an article by Baystreet.ca "BATTCON Could Catalyze ITKG After BASF Exhibits ElectriPlast at Plastics Conference"
Much of what is said within the Baystreet "BATTCON" article was previously mentioned in an 'EB' posting, but of course Baystreet's article offers new and insightful aspects. Rather than me spoon feeding this to you, instead, I will ask you go ahead and click the above link and stroll through their article. As a source of information, these folks have actually been there to kick the tires; review the books; visit with Integral's leadership in their offices, and visit with the engineers in Detroit. They have spoken with those companies which signed Letters of Intent (LOI), and are looking at this company, and the stories being generated, from a position of knowledge -- maybe, just maybe, they are doing a bit more than talking up the stock...maybe they are sharing a truth. That said, keep watching this blog, and more importantly, watch for news involving any of the four companies Integral is close to, and who are close to moving beyond a LOI with, Delphi, East Penn, BASF or Hanwah. PK sends...
Integral Technologies Adds James W. Wise to Advisory Board
Wise is the Managing Partner of PACE Companies, LLP, and for twenty-five years has represented clients to the Federal government and state governments in policy areas such as energy, transportation, and defense contracting. Wise will be invaluable in assisting the company in building further key partnerships and relationships in the public and private sectors. Bart Snell, Integral's CFO, works closely with the Advisory Board and serves as liaison so the initiatives of the Advisory Board are coordinated with the business and technology directions of ElectriPlast.
Jim Wise said, "The opportunities that the ElectriPlast technology brings to both the public and private sectors are limitless. We believe that the need of key industrial sectors to achieve greater energy efficiencies and enhanced functionality grows daily. ElectriPlast offers a unique combination of both light-weighting and conductivity that is real world proven. I am very excited to be a part of this cutting edge technology company that is bringing a great product to the marketplace at the right time."
Lightweighting is a large and rapidly growing market and conductive plastics has an important role to play within the lightweighting industry. ElectriPlast has made significant in-roads with the Automotive and Industrial markets, and will continue to expand these vertical markets with partner-centric applications.
"We are pleased with how the company is now positioned within the Automotive and Industrial sectors. There are large unaddressed needs in other vertical markets, specifically, Aerospace, Consumer, Power Storage, and related opportunities in the Department of Defense and the Intelligence markets," stated Integral CEO Doug Bathauer. "Jim will prove a valuable asset in further expanding these opportunities for us."
