Yes, herewith yet another quick note before reading: The story below has great significance on the planning and forward progress of this company, it is indicative of the pattern of things. This press release, like many others to come, is what interested eyes will see as ElectriPlast® becomes a commercialized force, and we move forward.

When I read such press releases, here is what I see... I see that the feared "risk", once associated to this investment, has all but evaporated. For those not looking, this will become all that more apparent as the partnerships we know about, expand & grow stronger. As commercialization kick's off and takes hold, the world will learn more about ElectriPlast®, and with learning, we'll see the forging of additional and prominent partnerships. All of the pieces are now present and in-place. The supply chains are a ready fact thanks to JARCO, Nova Polymers, and Hanwa. In addition, the Asian market place is secure, and diversified due to our exclusive association with Hanwa. And with these relationships, and other multi-billion dollar relationships in play, the "risk" we once feared has effectively been addressed and mitigated at each turn.

So, yes, before now, this was a risky investment. But linked below is somthing that will shine a positive light on our current reality. The tides of swelling potential are visible, and the days of sitting on the side-lines, patiently watching and waiting, are rapidly coming to an end.

Do yourself a favor... Below are two recently published Informational Reports. The first is from "One Equity Research" released on: 16 March 2015. And the second is an update from our friends at "Seeking Alpha". Both of these are reports linked, and are a must read for anyone interested in either the associated ElectriPlast 'Larger Picture', and in the 'Possibilities Ahead'...

That's enough cheerleading -- The Fire is Lit, and A GLOBAL marketplace awaits. This press release is simply one of many waiting to greet the company's shareholders, so enjoy.

Integral Partner Chang Rim Eng Approaches

First Significant ElectriPlast Order

CANTON, Mich., March 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Integral Technologies, Inc. (ITKG) ("Integral"), an emerging light-weighting leader and its wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp., announced today that its Asian molding partner, Chang Rim Eng Inc. ("Chang Rim") has completed its testing and development of a motor casing for an Asian automotive customer. "There were modifications that were made to meet the customer's requirements late last year, consequently we needed to produce new samples, and perform additional testing to complete the validation process," stated Won-Hyun Kwon, Chang Rim's President. "We have fulfilled all the requirements and we expect a significant order."


In addition to its automotive motor casing and enclosure product, Chang Rim has aggressively pursued other shielding applications outside of the automotive industry. To support this effort, Chang Rim is implementing a manufacturing extrusion line for the development of a new extrusion process for applications that are currently under development. "Most of our partners implement ElectriPlast® via injection molding, but ElectriPlast can also be extruded. Extrusion provides an opportunity to pursue new applications that are not possible with injection molding," stated Doug Bathauer, Integral's CEO. "In addition to implementing an extrusion line, Chang Rim will be working with various resins, including PET, PVC and PC. We are excited about this direction as we continue to work with Chang Rim in their innovative use of ElectriPlast®."


Chang Rim is a specialty molder based in Daegu, South Korea focusing on high margin plastic injection molded products for a variety of industries including automotive, consumer and industrial products.

Integral Relocates North American ElectriPlast Manufacturing

Integral Creates Manufacturing Foundation for Growth

EVANSVILLE, Ind., March 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Integral Technologies, Inc.'s (OTC-BB: ITKG) wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp. announces the completion of the relocation of its North American manufacturing from Jasper to Evansville, Indiana to prepare the foundation for expected manufacturing growth. In conjunction with long time manufacturing partner Jasper Rubber Products, the manufacturing is now taking place at Nova Polymers facility in Evansville, IN.


The relocation of the current manufacturing from the Jasper Rubber Products facility to Nova Polymers began in the fall of 2014, and was completed early this year. In addition to relocating the line, additional capacity was added by dedicating existing Nova fixed assets to the ElectriPlast process which will increase capacity by ten times when fully implemented. Nova was selected because they provide the necessary infrastructure for scaling manufacturing capacity to meet the expected growth in customer volumes through 2020 and beyond.


Nova brings over thirty years of experience in the custom compounding of engineering resins. Nova manufacturing and engineering resources includes an on-site lab which is a critical component in providing the required mechanical testing for ElectriPlast. With Nova's additional resources, ElectriPlast's customers will experience improved availability, shorter turnaround times and strategic room for growth as the manufacturing facility will accommodate significant increases in capacity. As demand dictates, ElectriPlast and Nova plan to develop five acres of land, located adjacent to Nova, which has been set aside for future expansion.


"We're excited to be a part of ElectriPlast's expansion and we're looking forward to being a partner in its strategic growth," states Roger Chapman, owner and President of Nova Polymers. "The ElectriPlast technology, combined with our compounding experience and Jasper Rubber's ElectriPlast manufacturing experience, make for a real winning combination."


"Moving the manufacturing line to Nova in Evansville is a logical step for ElectriPlast," said Doug Mathias, President Jasper Rubber Products. "We've enjoyed a close working relationship with ElectriPlast, and we look forward to continuing that relationship as we use our manufacturing engineering and process manufacturing experience to assist them as they scale operations cost effectively."


"This move has been planned since early 2014, as we anticipated the demand for additional ElectriPlast production to support Delphi, BASF and other partners," said Doug Bathauer CEO, Integral Technologies. "Nova is an excellent partner for us as they provide room for growth and have decades of compounding experience and lab testing capabilities which meet customer requirements and will facilitate achievement of necessary unit cost objectives. Based on already implemented process improvements and future enhancements, we estimate that our manufacturing costs will be reduced by roughly 50%. Relocating ElectriPlast manufacturing to Evansville, the hub of the North American plastics industry, will provide us greater access and opportunities within the plastics community."


Integral and ElectriPlast expect to increasingly use Evansville as the center of operations going forward. The Company has added a manufacturing director as well as a manufacturing operator. Additional direct manufacturing resources associated with growth will be in Evansville, as well as other functional support individuals. As part of this overall strategy, the Company recently opened executive and administrative office facilities at the Nova location.

ElectriPlast: 4th Quarter, 2014 - Conference Call Review...



























A

Conference Call

Transcript

Take-a-way...

By: ProfitKing,
February 17, 2015

Who else listened in on, or participated in the recent Conference Call?? Last week, I had an opportunity to listen in (once the content was posted), and actually liked much of what was said... The logic in the description of how things worked had me agreeing for the most part, but, I had to relisten because I found myself liking what I wanted to hear, instead of listening to everything shared. Hopefully this post, thanks to Seeking Alpha transcripts and one of your fellow shareholders, can offer some clairity. PK sends…



Recently both a fellow shareholder, and Seeking Alpha shared a copy of the transcripts from the Integral Technologies Shareholder Conference Call, which was held earlier this month.

And at the new favorite, Seeking Alpha...

http://seekingalpha.com/article/2918406-integral-technologies-itkg-ceo-doug-bathauer-on-q4-2014-results-earnings-call-transcript


Within each, you will note that Mr. Bathauer actually promised tangible movement beginning in the next few weeks. One week has passed so far, and the stock is in the green...but this cannot be all. With a "$30 billion" conductive and shielding market assessed to be in play, based on:

• The production foundation surrounding ElectriPlast presently established...,

• Updates on ElectriPlast sales/marketing initiatives (as the snowball begins to roll down hill...), and

• That ever important, and expected News on ElectriPlast revenue, partnerships and those all emerging tangible applications --


Just where will the ITKG stock movement begin to slow once the action truly begins???


Note: As featured in the recording -- This conference contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the 1933 Securities Act and Section 21E of the 1934 Securities Exchange Act. These statements include, without limitation, predictions and guidance relating to the company’s future financial performance, and the research, development and commercialization of its technologies. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminologies such as, may, should, expects, plans, anticipates, believes, estimates, predicts, potential, continue, or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology.

ElectriPlast: Market Analyst See Stock's Price Potential Rise...




Analyst see stock's price potential

upwards of $1.25 in the near future…

Speculation rules the world; it is what the market place has always been based on…


To speculate is one way of casting one’s fortunes on the ever changing landscape of a growing stock market, but when that speculation is based on tangibles…hard analysis, based on hours of interviews, company visits, a review of the books and pointed meetings with clients and partners – well then speculation takes a hard turn toward the realm of solid possibility.


In this case, ElectriPlast (EP) has had two ardent followers, both of whom have chased through the closeted ghosts surrounding the ElectriPlast potential, and Integral Technologies (OTCBB: ITKG), the company which holds the reins on this intellectual property (IP). What they found is what many of you had already known. There is more than a germ of truth and validity behind this disruptive technology, and both its future, and the untapped potentials are explosive.


So, a little bit more about these followers. A number of them are journalist published by Seeking Alpha.com, a stock market news & financial analysis platform, which, like its namesake, seeks out strong candidates in varying marketing fields to cover. Somehow, we came on the radar of some of their journalist contributors’, and since then --apparently liking what they saw in the ElectriPlast story and in the character of those managing the corporate side of the business-- they made a special project of tracking and drafting articles on the Integral team and the EP IP’s progress into the multitude of markets. This will apparently continue as these markets begin to benefit from Integral’s marketing transition, and the EP’s product transition into the practical consumer realm.


Another market follower is an analyst from ZACK’s who has been spotlighting EP’s progress and potential for a while now. Recent analytical estimates (as observed here on the ZACKs website) see ITKG’s stock price striking upwards of the $1.25 point in the near future, with the possible potential for higher price targets in the future as more news is made on EP’s marketplace acceptance and its materials’ expansion into industrial and consumer goods becomes more pronounced.
