MIOX Corp. licenses manufacture of equipment to Japanese company
MIOX Corp. and New Scientific Prevention of Japan have signed a ten-year exclusive distribution and manufacturing license agreement for MIOX on-site disinfection systems in Japan.
March 10, 2004 -- MIOX Corp. and New Scientific Prevention (NSP) of Japan have signed a ten-year exclusive distribution and manufacturing license agreement for MIOX on-site disinfection systems in Japan.
NSP has been involved in successfully selling MIOX products in Japan for the past several years and has been responsible for working with the Japanese government to obtain their endorsement of the technology. To date there are over 80 MIOX equipment installations in Japan, disinfecting and protecting potable water systems and swimming pools.
Water treatment in Japan receives high consideration. Since the MIOX process requires only salt, water, and power to operate, it is rapidly gaining acceptance as a suitable replacement for hazardous chlorine gas or bulk bleach. The MIOX product line includes both mixed-oxidant and hypochlorite generators for water treatment.
The distribution and license agreement is part of a program to strengthen the presence of the MIOX product line in the Japanese market and to expand international sales for the corporation. The agreement will be commemorated in a ceremony in Japan the beginning of April 2004.
In attendance will be the presidents of the MIOX Corporation and NSP Corporation, along with personnel from the US Embassy in Japan and local dignitaries.
MIOX Corporation was awarded the prestigious President's "E" Award for Excellence in Exporting in 2001, and was 1 of only 9 companies in the U.S. to receive the award that year. The MIOX Corporation projects the first Japanese manufactured units will be available in 2005.
