ElectriPlast™: The ElectriPlast Blog Welcomes Herb Reedman

[Editor's Note:  Originally, the theme of this article was the need for Integral to hire account representatives to negotiate with the many companies who have signed Integral non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).  Although there are in excess of 350 NDAs, for a variety of reasons, there has been little follow-up by Integral.  This is already changing thanks to Herb Reedman's appointment.  Keep an eye on him, folks.  He is the real deal.]

An Auto Industry Visionary and Recognized Leader

When CEO William S. Robinson announced the appointment of Herbert C. Reedman, Jr. to the Integral Technologies Board of Directors a month ago, few could have imagined the immediate impact this dynamic entrepreneur would have on our company.  Based on his recent Company Corner interview, Herb has "hit the ground running."  For starters, as Robinson stated, "Herb will focus his attention on the awareness, marketing, branding and sales of ElectriPlast™."

Really, Bill?  Is there anything else you want Herb to do?  After all, his portfolio covers most of Integral's range of activities.  Awareness: Tell the world who we are and what we have to sell.  Marketing: Get Integral Technologies' name out there in as many venues (print, broadcast and Internet) as possible.  (Don't forget the Goodyear Blimp at the college football games!)  Branding: Raise consumer awareness of ElectriPlast™ making it a household word, if possible.  Sales: Bring home the bacon, baby! That's what this has been about since day one.  Since receiving his portfolio from Bill Robinson, Herb has already taken a number of initiatives that auger well for the future of Integral and all who are invested in her.

What About that Backlog of NDAs?

Since the advent of ElectriPlast™, Integral has signed an increasing number of NDAs with scores of manufacturers in the automotive, consumer electronics, communications, military, medical device and other sectors.  Some of them read about ElectriPlast™ on-line or in trade journals and inquired it, but they had to sign an NDA before serious discussions ensued.  Others, skeptical about claims that conductive plastic can not only do the work of some metals, but do it better in a number of cases, asked for test samples (now they must pay), but the obligatory NDA came first.  No matter what the prospective relationship between the parties, an NDA was required.  Now there are far more NDAs than ElectriPlast™ patents.  At last count, 350-plus such agreements had been signed to protect the rights of Integral and our potential clients.

Great!  Now what?  For starters, those 350 NDAs aren't worth the paper they're printed on unless someone from Integral follows up with the signatories; however, given staffing limitations at Integral, there has been very little follow up.  But even newly-minted MBA graduates know that follow up negotiations and salesmanship are necessary to move beyond the NDA stage and to the point of a purchase order.  Until Herb Reedman and his staff came along, whatever follow up that occurred had been conducted by Mo Zeidan and his team of specialists.

Let the Experts Handle the NDAs

As NDAs continued to mount, the staff at Integral remained fairly static, not that they had the time or the credentials to serve as account managers anyway.  Then, miracle of miracles, we found Herb Reedman, the missing piece of the Integral equation.  He has the resources, the network and the industry contacts to help move us beyond the penny stock level.  According to his interview, he has dedicated himself as well as six of his staff from Vantage4, his automotive marketing and consulting firm in Fort Washington, PA, to the success of Integral Technologies.  And that, folks, is what you call commitment.

Moreover, Herb is establishing the Integral Technologies National Sales Office in his Vantage4 marketing and consulting firm, the Philadelphia Center, as he calls it.  At last, someone is showing some leadership by focusing on that mountain of 350 NDAs and getting us out of our current circular pattern.  Reedman and company are experts at marketing, sales and consulting, and have the capability to move the NDA signatories to the contract stage.  Without question, Reedman's resources, networks and contacts can make this badboy happen.

One last observation, if I may be permitted: Herb Reedman was one of the best in his sector.

He was a successful businessman for four decades, a recognized leader in his industry, and an innovator and thinker who was in the vanguard of his group such that his wise counsel was sought by many of his peers.  Clearly, after building and running a multimillion dollar business, I submit that Herb Reedman isn't one to rest on his laurels.  That being the case, might I suggest, from a succession planning perspective, that Herb could easily take over the helm of this ship and make Bill Robinson and the rest of us very wealthy shareholders.

So, a hearty shout out from the ElectriPlast Blog and welcome to Integral Technologies, Herb Reedman!  We have been waiting for you for a very long time.

With business credentials that will help Integral move to the next level.

ElectriPlast: In the News with Something New...

Integral Technologies, Inc. (ITKG) Launches Revolutionary New Electrically Conductive Hybrid Plastic Based on the Company’s ElectriPlast Technology

Integral Technologies, the leading developer of hybridized plastics which are electrically conductive and used for a vast array of electronic devices or other industrial/consumer products, reported today the immediate availability of a new version of the Company’s flagship ElectriPlast™ technology, called ElectriPlast-CF66.

This newly engineered composite material has been developed to specifically meet the exacting requirements of electromagnetic shielding, thermal and mechanical demands in applications like aerospace, automotive and marine. Designed to be a cost-effective electromagnetic shielding solution for engine compartments and other harsh environments, EP-CF66 is composed primarily of polyamide 66 and nickel-plated carbon fiber, resulting in a remarkably superior material that is half the weight of extant/competing conductive plastics industry-wide.

CEO of ITKG, Bill Robinson, clearly knows he has a winning product on his hands and explained that the revolutionary EP-CF66 is really the result of extensive R&D, collaboration and tons of hours spent working closely with the Company’s OEM clients. Robinson pointed to the improved durability and material strength achieved in EP-CF66 without compromising the conductivity, explaining that it is a salient technology which instantly sets itself apart from and ahead of other electrically conductive hybrid plastics.

The Company’s intention was to carve out a sizeable chunk of the market of Tier One suppliers, in conjunction with whom EP-CF66 was developed, so as to broaden the Company’s already sizeable footprint in the sector. Looking at the physical and performance characteristics of EP-CF66, it is not hard to feel like that intention has been successfully fulfilled and with resounding triumph. Whether we are talking high mechanical strength or overall integrity with regard to resisting corrosion from fluids, EP-CF66 is a robust composite that also can endure high frequency vibrations without breaking down.

Parts molded with EP-CF66 have even beaten aluminum for conductivity in certain frequencies and at less than half the weight, truly a remarkable product which has broadened ITKG’s portfolio of technologies substantially and dovetails nicely with the other offerings in the Company’s ever-expanding line of ElectriPlast composites.

CTO of ITKG, Mo Zeidan, also pointed to the vast customer testing that went into the development of EP-CF66 and how the positive feedback received on the material’s mechanical properties, light weight and conductivity is a solid testimony of quality.

EP-CF66 serves a huge market which is looking for ways to make products cheaper, lighter and more robust while meeting stricter regulations on fuel standards, greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption. EP-CF66 has already been named among the “Best of What’s New” in technology products from esteemed publications like Popular Science and was labeled as a “Best Innovation” by the Innovations International CES.

The Company’s huge patent and IP library has also been underscored by MDB Capital as “One of the 50 Best & Brightest Companies”, leading to a huge amount of buzz surrounding the Company as this new offering hits the market.
