Agreement marks the expansion of the good naturedTM brand into the U.S. market
June 9, 2016— (Vancouver, BC) Solegear Bioplastic Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “Solegear”) (TSX-V:SGB) has received an initial purchase order from All Source Security Container Mfg Corp. (“All Source”) for Solegear’s good naturedTM brand of plant-based office organization products.
All Source is North America’s leading manufacturer and distributor of commercial document security and destruction equipment and office accessories. The good naturedTM products will be made available to All Source’s commercial customers across North America.
“Both Solegear and All Source are experiencing rapidly increasing demand from leading companies for products and services that can reduce carbon emissions and increase the use of renewable resources,” said Paul Antoniadis, CEO of Solegear. This agreement with All Source to offer good naturedTM office organization products, along with their existing security and destruction products, provides Solegear with access into an established U.S. B2B customer base, particularly amongst Fortune 1000 brands. These companies are actively seeking ways to increase employee satisfaction, and employees are making it very clear that they expect healthier, safer workplaces that include comprehensive sustainability programs.”
“All Source is excited about the opportunity to partner with Solegear to promote and distribute their line of office products made from plant-based materials,” said Pete Pancel, CEO of All Source. “As a company, we pride ourselves on finding and delivering solutions for our customers through development of innovative and sustainable products. Working with Solegear, a company that has developed an innovative and renewable product line, aligns and complements our strategy. We look forward to growing our partnership, providing product solutions to our customers and improving sustainability in the work place.”
Powered by Solegear’s independently certified 85% plant-based bioplastic, good naturedTM office organization products specifically target the $12+ billion North American home and business organization market primarily dominated by traditional, fossil fuel-based plastics, which according to California’s leading Proposition 65, often contain chemicals of concern that are potentially harmful to the environment and human health.
