CENTERVILLE, MA – February 1, 2011 (Investorideas.com Newswire) - UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company's athletic distributor, New England Sports Sales ("NESSI"), a national distributor of hockey and related athletic equipment to college and professional hockey teams across the US and Canada, has been notified that they will be facilitating the shipment of ViraTech UV-400 air purifiers to the Hockey Canada practice and training facility in Calgary.
The WinSport Canada facility operates under the scope of Hockey Canada, the national body regulating the sport across Canada. Located in Calgary's Canada Olympic Park, the 500,000-square-foot structure currently includes three North American-size ice rinks designed for hockey, sledge hockey as well as figure skaters. The facility has already been dubbed a calling card for Calgary in continuing to attract world-class athletes to the city.
With this shipment, scheduled for delivery upon completion of the facility, UV Flu will become an official supplier to Hockey Canada, and will continue to build brand awareness within the sport by directly introducing the product to the athletes who will benefit the most by its use. Hockey Canada will be an excellent addition to the growing list of teams and facilities utilizing the product including the Boston Bruins, Pittsburgh Penguins, and several notable college organizations.
"We believe we have not even scratched the surface for the potential demand of this product in the professional and college athletic marketplace," commented Charles Gulteri, President of NESSI. "Hockey and basketball are major sports where every player is critical to the team and the constant travel and changing weather conditions during cold and flu season create fertile conditions for the spread of illness. The UV-400 will prevent the spread of many of these airborne illnesses for an incredibly low price and we believe teams cannot afford to be without them in their team areas. We plan on talking with the NHL, as well as college teams, to further educate them on the importance of this product," said Mr. Gulteri.
Further details regarding the Company's business, financial reports and agreements are filed as part of the Company's continuous public disclosure as a reporting issuer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") EDGAR database.
UV Flu Technologies is an innovative developer, manufacturer and distributor of bio technology products initially targeting the rapidly growing Indoor Air Quality ("IAQ") industry sector (over $7.7 billion in 2008).
