Oryon Technologies’ Elastolite and its operating system, including electronics and harness, has been market tested and validated and is ready to be launched in support of its multiple market opportunities. To take advantage of what management considers are its multiple market opportunities, the Company intends to raise additional capital to support its growth strategy and its existing pipeline of opportunities. Even if successful in its capital formation efforts, the Company will still not be able to take advantage of all the opportunities that now present themselves.
The Company recognized during the commercialization process that Elastolite’s strength of being a platform technology for multiple applications in numerous industries can also be its weakness. Due to the immense size and divergent requirements of the multiple industries the Company can target, ORYN must focus and initially limit the applications and industries in which it can make the most immediate impact. In this manner Oryon Technologies can optimize its resources and more readily leverage the positive results it achieves.
The Company will initially focus its efforts on apparel, textiles, shoes and subsequently membrane switches. Oryon, therefore, will evaluate its current opportunities and select those customer applications which are presently within the Company’s core technical competence and that present themselves with both high level volume and profit potential. the Company believes opportunities are presently available in the apparel, safety-apparel, textile and membrane switch industries.
To the extent there is adequate available capital, the Company intends to:
• (i) to support its existing pipeline of opportunities in its target markets with additional application and technical transfer engineers and customer service personnel and
• (ii) to take advantage of new, but previously identified, market opportunities in apparel, textiles and shoes.
Once traction is achieved in its initial target markets, and planned development of new opportunities are completed, the Company will attempt to expand into other targeted opportunities that presently exist with lit molded product applications such as laptop keypads, remote controls, toys, lit cycling and biking helmets, lit cell phone cases and multiple automotive opportunities.
Subsequently, other opportunities in the following fields will be evaluated at a later date:
- point-of sale,
- outdoor displays,
- security systems,
- household furnishings,
- decorative floorings,
- various military applications, and
- molding in all of the above
