Shawn Lolling, AbTech Director of Engineering (August 26) joined from Culligan International with a focus on non-conventional media technologies - adds significant support and credibility to the Company’s sales effort and ultimately expedites the project proposal process.
Dipak P. Jogia, Board of Directors (February 2016) – Mr. Jogia is the Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Highmore Funds, an investment advisor to the Hugo Neu Corporation, the owner of approximately 13% of AbTech’s outstanding common stock.
“2016 was a rough year as we worked to transition the sales effort. During 2016, we expanded the Company’s capabilities and addressable markets, reestablished our presence at the most notable and heavily trafficked trade shows, reengaged in active marketing and social media presence, and began to open customer dialog and relationships that we anticipate could yield positive results in 2017,” commented Jeff Gutierrez, AbTech’s Vice President of Sales. “We firmly believe that as our distribution channels mature, economic conditions improve, and targeted market applications are validated and accepted, AbTech will be able to generate significant revenue growth.”
Revenue from traditional stormwater sales has been relatively consistent from AbTech’s customer base, which is predominately comprised of municipalities, airports and commercial entities, including construction companies. However, with the hiring of additional engineering leadership mid-year 2016 and the introduction of the heavy metals (“HM”) product line for the removal of heavy metals and ortho-phosphates, AbTech is anticipating sales growth in this market with an opportunity pipeline that is beginning to fill. In addition, AbTech has been working with multiple distributors focused on civil water projects and is exploring an opportunity to add Smart Sponge into pre-existing designs of other vendors for end of pipe applications.
