NanoMech Acquires Canadian Nano Technologies


Canano provides custom engineered nanopowders designed to solve unique problems, adding value to products that cross multiple industries including electronic equipment, farming, solar energy, and aerospace. The company was set up to develop and commercialize applications of pure steel nanopowders. Using a proprietary fuel condensation procedure partly based on research performed at Lanl, NanoMech will produce a wide range of high quality nanoparticles. NanoMech procedure is unique and offers considerable improvements over nanoparticle production/collection processes.

NanoMech is a leading designer and producer of nanoparticle-based coating deposit systems and protective coatings.

Jim Phillips, Chairman and Chief Executive of NanoMech, stated, “We Are excited relating to this acquisition as it brings novel nanomaterial production capacity and new knowledge occupations into our engineering portfolio, creating important synergies that can help our current products and people under development. It also accelerates our entry into new markets depending on nano-scale alternatives such as farming electronic equipment, along with the aerospace business. Thus, we’re constructing two nano-reactors in our manufacturing plant in Springdale instantly which will provide advanced nanopowders to clients across the world.”

Richard Tacker, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Canano stated, “Our customers have seen the value our custom-designed nanopowders provide to their commodities, and as a result the need for our stuff is growing fast. By joining NanoMech we can make the most of their excellent management team, produce expertise, and scale up their production ability to serve existing and future clients.”

Dr. Ajay P. Malshe, NanoMech’s Founder, Executive VP and CTO, included, “By combining unique nanomaterial synthesis capabilities with our ability to make nano-engineered additives, coatings and composites, we will enhance our current product offerings and direct to new product breakthroughs.”

The nanopowder technology programs can include progress methods of enhancing: nutrient replacement fertilizers and environmentally safe pesticides and conductive inks for printed circuit boards, RFID’s, photovoltaic printed solar panels, solar connectors, area coatings, new era ballistics, RF shielding, self-cleaning surfaces, solar heaters, condensers , silicon wafers, solid rocket fuels, and primers.
