CENTERVILLE, Mass., Jan. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT/UVFTD) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has commenced shipments of its Viratech UV-400 air purifier to its first retail furniture account, the largest store of its kind in New England. The order included 20 units to be used as demos, which will be mounted on kiosks, which are now in production. The full launch is scheduled for mid-February.
"This order is a significant event for UV Flu," said Jack Lennon, President of UV Flu. "We already have a second furniture chain that has expressed interest in carrying the product, once the kiosks become available. Ultimately, the Company expects the number of stores carrying the product will continue to grow into the hundreds, as production is able to meet expected demand."
"Furniture stores typically sell thousands of mattresses per year, primarily to people who want to sleep better. There are direct links between Indoor Air Pollution and sleep-related problems. There are also direct health-related links between respiratory issues, including asthma and allergies, cardiovascular issues, cancer, and even diabetes. People are spending a significant amount of time indoors, where air quality is essential in improving health, and the quality of sleep. Customers are willing to spend thousands of dollars on entertainment centers, bedroom sets, and nurseries, so key decision-makers in the major furniture chains are starting to realize, that by adding the UV-400 to the package, the stores can dramatically improve the health and well-being of their customers, as well as the overall satisfaction with their purchase," said Mr. Lennon. "There is no other product on the market today, that is more effective in helping people sleep more soundly, while keeping them healthy while they're indoors, than the Viratech UV-400."
Further details regarding the Company's business, acquisitions, 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.
