CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio, June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Nutek®, (www.nutekgreen.com) an environmentally-conscious consumer products company, is bullish when it comes to supporting both Ohio-based companies and Ohio soybean farmers to build its booming business.  Launching in 2007 with a vision of a sustainable America, Nutek introduced safe alternatives to petroleum-based and environmentally -- toxic cleaning and lubricating products.  Offering their green customers high-performance, biodegradable products in recyclable packaging, the company has had a meteoric rise to success.

Cathy Horton, Nutek CEO states, "We built our company in Ohio believing in the wealth of knowledge, expertise and the Midwest "Do It Right" work ethic that exists here.  When it comes to suppliers, starting with the soybeans we use in producing our formulations to the packaging, fulfillment, and advertising Nutek has found all the resources we need right in our own backyard. We take great pride in providing 65+ green jobs in an economy where job creation is of critical importance."

Nutek supply chain begins with the Ohio soybean consortium, Mercer Landmark. This valued vendor-partner relationship, in fact, has recently resulted in Nutek looking to supply its soybean oil exclusively from Ohio farmers. Mike Fry, Mercer Landmark CEO believes, "Ohio farmers take great pride in seeing their very own beans being used to create the high performance lubricants manufactured by Nutek.  We are thrilled to link arms with such an innovative company."

Moreover, in an effort to bring the farming community even closer to the company, Nutek CEO Cathy Horton, a farmer's daughter herself,  accepted an undisclosed investment of growth capital from the members of Mercer Landmark and by Heartland Agdeavor Inc. http://www.heartlandagdeavor.com.  Heartland's mission is to increase farm income through the development of value-added businesses that utilize farm commodities.  Heartland COO and Executive Director, Larry Thompson states: "Our farm owners seek to invest in companies like Nutek that support agriculture and sustainability.  The passion and commitment Nutek has shown to the Ohio farming community and its mission are exemplary and worthy of our mutual support."

Continuing the list of Ohio suppliers, Nutek gratefully acknowledges aluminum can supplier, Exal Corporation, Youngstown, OH, Custom Aerosol Packaging, Piqua, OH for filling¸ box producer Buckeye Container, Wooster, OH and Specialty Lubricants Corp, Macedonia, OH for packaging of Nutek brand wipes.
