Major New Client Win in Southern California
TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MagneGas Applied Technology Solutions, Inc. ("MagneGas" or the "Company") (MNGA), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental solutions industries, announced today that the City of San Diego has elected to use MagneGas as its metal cutting fuel of choice, marking the first major city contract for the adoption of our metal cutting fuels. The City of San Diego has historically used acetylene to maintain a wide range of equipment used for waste removal, maintenance and infrastructure support and as of this contract, the City will immediately begin adoption of MagneGas’ cleaner and safer fuel products. In addition, the San Diego Continuing Education Cultural Complex (“ECC”) has elected to begin using MagneGas for the training and recertification of welders in the southern California market.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to serve the City of San Diego and the San Diego Continuing Education Cultural Complex,” commented Scott Mahoney, Chief Executive Officer of MagneGas. “We have been steadily marketing our propriety metal cutting fuel for one year since acquiring Complete Welding of San Diego in January of last year.”
“We have been presenting our unique capabilities through periodic live demonstrations of our technology, and we have been patiently supporting the local market as we gained the trust and confidence of some of the largest consumers of metal cutting fuels in the southern California market. The City of San Diego’s decision to adopt our product is a major milestone in our growth efforts in California.”
Mr. Mahoney concluded, “We are also very proud of our new relationship with the San Diego Continuing Education Cultural Complex. This is one of the premier training and recertification centers for welders in southern California, and we’re proud to help shape this aspect of the curriculum going forward. This relationship will quickly serve as a powerful platform for promoting our products and building new client relationships across the southern part of the state. Being deeply involved in the educational aspect of this industry is strategically important because we have the responsibility to train the next generation of welders on the newest and safest technologies and have them carry it forward in their careers.”
