News Release


BELLINGHAM, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:ITKG) (“Integral”), an emerging leader in hybrid conductive plastics used to replace the metallic component currently used in EMI shielding and conductive devices, is pleased to announce the appointment of James Eagan as a member of its board of directors. In his new role, he will focus his efforts on commercializing Integral’s patented ElectriPlast™ material and transforming Integral into a company with global operations.

Before joining Integral, Eagan spent nearly 15 years as an executive in the satellite telecommunication industry and has extensive international management and business development experience. He was previously based in Seoul, Korea and Sydney, Australia. Eagan was responsible for establishing ORBCOMM Global, L.P.’s (“Global”) terrestrial infrastructure throughout Asia Pacific and setting up their regional franchise partnerships in Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Australia. In 2000, the economic downturn that affected much of the telecom industry forced Global into Chapter 11. Seeing an opportunity, James co-founded ORBCOMM LLC (“ORBCOMM”) and acquired all the assets from Global, including its 36 satellites, and continued to operate the ORBCOMM business, saving over 100 jobs in the Northern Virginia area. As ORBCOMM’s Chief Marketing Officer and Director, he was key in its restructuring and revitalization. In 2006, ORBCOMM completed an IPO valuing the company at over $400 million (NASDAQ: “ORBC”).

Previously, Eagan was with Lockheed Martin where he was responsible for international programs supporting the sale of naval weapons systems. Prior to that, he was a naval officer working in the Navy’s Aegis shipbuilding program.

Eagan attended the University of California, Los Angeles on a Navy ROTC scholarship and received his bachelor’s degree in economics, and an MBA from George Washington University.

Integral’s Chairman and CEO, William Robinson, said, “This is the start of an exciting year for us, and we are thrilled to welcome James to Integral. His experience in commercializing new technologies and partnering with multinationals and iconic brands, such as Panasonic, NEC, Hitachi, Caterpillar, Komatsu and Volvo Trucks, will help to further our plans in making ElectriPlast™ a globally accepted material, for use in every market segment that needs this technology, including automotive, consumer electronics and wireless product manufacturers.”

Integral Technologies

Integral Technologies is an emerging leader in the development and application of next-generation conductive plastic materials. The company currently has 52 issued US patents relating to the composition, manufacture and application of their ElectriPlast™ technology, and they continue to develop and protect new intellectual property.
