PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, Oct. 8, 2010 -- NEFCO, Incorporated, a privately held company headquartered in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, is pleased to announce its new strategic alliance with Ecometec Gmbh of Munich, Germany.

Ecometec is a trading company marketing products to the oil, medical, water and wastewater industries. It will have responsibility for promoting NEFCO's engineered fiberglass products in the established markets of Bavaria and Austria, as well as the emerging markets of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Kosovo.

Earle Schaller, the President and Founder of NEFCO states, "Our basic strategy with Ecometec is to promote the use of fiberglass for wastewater treatment applications in general, but focusing on the NEFCO Stamford Density Current Baffle technology which improves plant performance. Many of the wastewater plants in the areas covered by Ecometec are located near the sea. In order to avoid corrosion from the salt air, these plants are required to employ an expensive, extremely high-grade of stainless steel for the component parts of their process equipment. We believe that the adoption of fiberglass as the material of choice wherever possible will provide considerable cost savings as well as greater durability."

NEFCO™ is the premier supplier of engineered fiberglass products to the North American water and wastewater treatment industries. It is the world leader is the design and development of Density Current Baffles for optimizing clarifier effluent quality. It also pioneered the design and development of unique Launder Cover Systems that inhibit algae growth and control odors in clarification tanks. In addition, NEFCO supplies a wide variety of fiberglass troughs, launders, weirs and scum baffles to both municipal and industrial treatment plants. NEFCO™ is known for its innovative concepts and quality products.
