ZEN Graphene Solutions Ltd. (“ZEN” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:ZEN and OTC:ZENYF), a Canadian, nanotechnology company focused on next-gen healthcare solutions, today announces that it has delivered and generated revenue from its first shipment of ZENGuardTM antimicrobial coating to Trebor Rx (Trebor).
This first commercial shipment was enabled by a successful ramp up from bench scale production to pilot scale capacity, which currently exceeds the amount needed for 30 million masks per month. The company also reports that the engineering work on its industrial plant, with an estimated capacity to coat the equivalent of 800 million masks per month, is completed and now in the procurement stage. ZEN expects the build out and commissioning of the plant to be completed during the fourth quarter.
Greg Fenton, ZEN CEO commented: “The achievement of our first commercial sale of ZENGuardTM to our partner Trebor marks the beginning of what we expect to be a very compelling growth story for the prevention pillar of our health care portfolio in the months and years ahead. With Health Canada approval behind us, we are now focused on bringing our industrial production online to meet the global demand we expect for our gold standard anti-microbial face mask.”
