Implementing Our Strategy of Acquiring New Domestic Manufacturing Capabilities has been Validated with this Significant Purchase Order
Expects Incremental Sales Over the Near Term of up to Approximately $8 Million from Projects Currently Being Expedited Through the Model Room Phase
Applied UV, Inc. (NasdaqCM: AUVI) (“Applied UV” or the “Company”), a pathogen elimination technology company that applies the power of narrow-range ultraviolet light (“UVC”) for surface areas and catalytic bioconversion technology for air purification to destroy pathogens safely, thoroughly and automatically, announces that its wholly-owned subsidiary, MunnWorks, received a purchase order for approximately $1.5 million for domestic production of furniture and mirrors for installation at a luxury resort located in Orlando, Florida.
Max Munn, President and Director of Applied UV and MunnWorks, stated, “This order further validates our strategic decision to acquire domestic production to mitigate risks related to supply chain and import tariffs. Our domestic production capabilities were a key differentiator in securing this win. We are increasingly encouraged by the additional opportunities we are pursuing with a number of hotel operators for installations across the United States. We have a number of active projects in our recently acquired 100,000 square foot facility in the 'model room' phase with well-known, luxury hotel franchises that amount to approximately $8 million in incremental sales from new clients in the coming months, in addition to ordinary recurring sales.”
John F. Andrews, Applied UV's Chief Executive Officer, commented, “This win also provides us with a compelling opportunity to leverage the synergies between our Hospitality and Disinfection segments. Hotel operators are vigilant in their commitment to providing a safe and sterilized environment for their guests. Our wholly-owned subsidiary, SteriLumen, will be providing proprietary Airocide™ air sterilization systems on a test basis in conjunction with the new furnishings. We are confident the hotel operators will quickly understand the value our proprietary, photo-catalytic oxidation technology can provide to the hotel guest experience.”
