IDAHO FALLS, Idaho, Aug. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- International Isotopes Inc. (OTCQB: INIS) (the "Company" or "INIS") announced that a group of buyers has acquired all the units of RadQual, LLC ("RadQual") not already held by INIS. The buying group is comprised of a group of affiliates of the Company, including the current Chairman of the Board, the former Chairman of the Board, and the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. This group has acquired approximately 75% of the member units of RadQual. INIS still retains its 25% ownership in RadQual.
Following this purchase, INIS has been voted by the new members to become the primary managing member of RadQual, and will be responsible for oversight of all business activities and management of RadQual. Messrs. Keith Allberg and Peter Ouimette had been the long-standing managers of RadQual prior to this acquisition and both have since resigned as managers.
Steve T. Laflin, President and CEO of INIS and new Managing Member of RadQual, said, "The most important message we want to send to our customers is that this transition of ownership will positively impact the RadQual product line and we will work to maintain our excellent customer service and product quality and pricing. In fact, after we complete our initial transition of basic business functions of RadQual we plan to actively examine an expansion of the RadQual product line and broaden our distribution reach. RadQual and the Benchmark line of products have a proven history of high quality and reasonable pricing and this change in management will not alter that."
Messrs. Keith Allberg and Peter Ouimette, the past majority owners and managers of RadQual in a prepared statement said, "We have greatly enjoyed our sixteen years of owning and managing RadQual and we're very proud of the great reputation the RadQual products have achieved in that time. INIS, has been the sole manufacturing facility for all RadQual products since the beginning and their contract manufacturing performance has been a key reason for our product success. RadQual has always taken pride in providing the best customer service in the industry and we are certain that INIS will continue that proud tradition after this management change is complete."
Steve T. Laflin further noted, "We will be reaching out to all of RadQual's customers and distributors to update everyone for all changes to points of contact and contact information for RadQual.
