About Kelso Technologies
Kelso is a railroad equipment supplier that designs, produces and sells a new generation of innovative products designed to improve the safe containment and pressure management of hazardous materials ("HAZMAT") during rail or road transport. Products include a series of external constant force spring pressure relief valves and a new revolutionary manway system trademarked as the "Kelso Klincher™".
These products are initially designed for use on applications on railroad tank cars but are currently being modified for use in other markets that include roadway trucking. All products are patent protected. Their primary design function is to reduce human errors and injuries and minimize environmental harm due to non-accidental release events that may occur during the transport of HAZMAT.
Kelso's ultimate goal is to have its products categorized as "best available technology" that can be utilized on a wide range of HAZMAT and non-hazardous applications that will lead to the capture of a large share of the market for these products. Management is confident that based on the recent acceptance and rapid adoption of our products by OEM customers in the railroad industry that we have created a product catalogue on which to grow and sustain a successful multi-million dollar business on behalf of the shareholders of Kelso Technologies.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
