Toronto, Ontario – June 4, 2021- Universal PropTech Inc. (TSXV: UPI | OTCQB: UPIPF | FSE: 8LH) (“UPI” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that the company is expanding the distribution of Air Sniper products across Canada and exploring sales into the United States. The company and Air Alpine Innovation Research Inc. (“Air Sniper”) have agreed under a revised distribution agreement (“Agreement”) to expand the Company’s geographic reach, which now includes all of Canada and the United States. This revised distribution agreement comes as an update to its original agreement previously announced on February 1, 2021. The Company has agreed to convert its status as an exclusive Master Distributor for eastern Canada to a non-exclusive one covering both Canada and United States.
This amended Agreement will serve to both expand international markets for indoor air quality (“IAQ”) products and enable the Company to have additional options in IAQ equipment, one that enables the Company to sustain its trusted advisor status with customers.
The company is currently in the process of speaking with various interested entities for the sale and distribution of Air Sniper products, and the company expects to update stakeholders in the coming days.
The President and CEO of Universal PropTech Inc., Mr. Chris Hazelton, stated, “We are excited to begin the process of increasing our geographic footprint with Air Sniper and provide potential customers across Canada and the United States with indoor air quality solutions they can trust”. Mr. Hazelton further commented, “We have begun conversations with distribution and dealer partners seeking to provide customers with state-of-the-art MADE-IN-CANADA indoor air quality solutions”.
According to Grande View Research – “The global air purifier market size was valued at USD 10.67 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.0% from 2021 to 2028. The market is expected to be driven by rising airborne diseases and increasing pollution levels in urban areas. Moreover, growing health consciousness, improving standards of living, and rising disposable income are expected to fuel the market growth. The rising adoption of air pollution control equipment, especially in developing regions across the globe, is anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period. The rising awareness regarding a healthy lifestyle, especially among the urban youth, is expected to significantly contribute to the market growth”.
