JBI, Inc. Executes Area Development Agreement (ADA) With AS PTO, LLC for 45 Sites in Florida
NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, Feb. 12, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JBI, Inc. (the "Company") (OTCBB: JBII) is pleased to announce that on February 12, 2010, JBI consummated an Area Development Agreement (ADA) for 45 P2O sites in the State of Florida with a newly formed entity (AS PTO, LLC) controlled by Al Sousa of Largo, Florida.
Mr. Sousa is a seasoned executive with extensive business experience in both the public and private sectors and has been involved in a wide variety of matters including operational management of multiple entities including acquisitions, marketing, financing and governmental affairs.
In his position with a large publicly held company, he planned and implemented a start-up venture with multiple business units and annualized revenues nearly $150 million. His division had seven business segments in sixteen states with approximately 2,800 employees.
The Company expects that Mr. Sousa's company will begin to quickly cultivate supply chains and sites for the installation of P2O sites throughout Florida concentrating first on large metropolitan areas and expanding outwards. The "Green" aspects of the P2O process is expected to solve problems in the area of plastic waste disposal as well as generate much needed oil for commercial use. Public-Private partnerships are expected and local, state and Federal credits are available for rapid deployment and cost effective development.
JBI, Inc. is transitioning to become a global technology leader whose purpose is to mine data from JBI's large information archive, find under-productive entities to inject our superior proprietary technologies into, and benefit from increased productivity and profitability, beginning with Plastic2Oil. JBI has also acquired the following operations:
JAVACO, Inc. ("Javaco") is part of the Supplier Diversity Network, WBENC. JAVACO, Inc. currently distributes over 100 lines of equipment from fiber optic transmitters to RF connectors. To further enhance business in the United States, new distribution lines are frequently being added including a line of home theater and audio video products. Javaco will operate and manage the Company's Plastic2Oil sites in Mexico.
Pak-It, LLC ("Pak-It"): Using the patented Pak-It(TM) delivery system (liquid cleaner in a water soluble sachet) Pak-It can deliver glass cleaner, disinfectant, multi-purpose, and many more cleaning products (42 products currently) shipped in tiny packages of condensed cleaner (inside a 'dry' 1 quart container). This delivery method is "green" since it's fully biodegradable and saves thousands of dollars in shipping. The user simply adds water to the container without measuring or cutting the Pak-It. Large retailers and many national Building Service Contractors already using the product have documented significant cost savings from shipping, training, inventory control and space.
Accordingly, our revenue sources presently include (i) income from reading archived tapes (including microfiche) from clients such as NASA, (ii) income from the recently acquired JAVACO, Inc., (iii) income from the sale of Pak-It products, and bulk chemical facility which we realize beginning October 1, 2009, and (iv) from the anticipated commencement of operations in the first quarter of 2010 with Plastic2Oil, a process and service that converts plastic to fuel oil.
