Published on 2004-07-20. Author : SpecialChem


FT. MYERS, Fla. -- NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: NEOM), announced that its NeoMedia Micro Paint Repair business unit has added five more licensees as part of a private label contract with a top Canadian auto aftermarket company.

NeoMedia said the sale was to Crackmaster Distributors Ltd. of St. Albert, Alberta, on behalf of its Chipmaster(TM) Auto Paint Systems subsidiary. Late last year Crackmaster entered into a private label agreement with CSI International, since acquired by and merged with NeoMedia, to help launch and boost sales of Chipmaster franchises in Canada.

"Private label sales are very important in micro repair industry, which is continuing to emerge as one of the fastest-growing sectors of the worldwide auto aftermarket," said Arthur Gilfus, the recently-named vice president of sales for NeoMedia Micro Paint. "Expanding sales to existing customers such as Crackmaster/Chipmaster, as well as adding new customers, is an integral component in our business plan."

Gilfus said NeoMedia Micro Paint has a "Train the Trainers" program, with Crackmaster/Chipmaster an active and successful participant.

'The Best in the Business'

Ivan Mayer, the entrepreneurial founder and president of both Crackmaster and Chipmaster, called the private label system created by NeoMedia Micro Paint "the best in the business. Owners of high-end vehicles requiring paint touch-ups for scratches, scuffs or even bumper damage can be confident when they come to our dealers and the NeoMedia system is used," he said. "With this system, we create a chemical adhesion rather than a mechanical adhesion, which is used by less-advanced body shops.

"Another very important factor is safety," said Mayer. "NeoMedia's system is environmentally sound, which helps makes body shops and paint bays at our Chipmaster franchises throughout Canada safer places in which to work."
