Toronto – December 7, 2007
K2 Pure Solutions is furthering plans to introduce its inherently safe bleach technology solution into the California market. Having already announced a site for the development of its vertically integrated, state-of-the-art sodium hypochlorite facility in southern California; K2 Pure Solutions is actively negotiating for a site in Northern California, and expects to make a definitive announcement in Q1 of 2008.
Howard Brodie, K2 Pure Solutions CEO says “The certain development of K2’s northern California plant, coupled with our developing southern California facility will put us in a excellent position to meet the remarkable sodium hypochlorite, caustic soda and hydrochloric acid demand of the great state of California; all while supplying these products without having to ship dangerous chlorine, thereby benefiting the safety and security of the people of California.”
To facilitate the development of the California market, K2 Pure Solutions is pleased to announce the appointment of two veterans of the chlor-alkali industry. Mr. Richard Anthony has been named as the Director of Engineering for California and comes to K2 Pure from Occidental Chemical and Eltech Systems where he functioned as a Process Engineer and Project Manager. While Mr. Imtiaz Khan with over 28 years experience in plant erection and commissioning with companies such as the Clorox Corporation and Cellchem, has been named as Plant Manager of one of K2 Pure’s California plants. Both Mr. Anthony and Mr. Khan were also key members of the team responsible for the successful start-up of BleachTech LLC’s Seville, Ohio plant.
Howard Brodie goes on to say that “the appointment of two chlor-alkali industry veterans like Rick and Imtiaz will go a long way in helping K2 Pure prepare itself for a strong, sustainable business in serving the people, industry and government of California”.
