Apprion Expands Reach Internationally -- Forms Apprion Brazil With Solutis Brazil

Brazilian Firm to Provide Industrial Applications and Networks to One of the World's Fastest Growing Economies

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) - Apprion today announced its first major expansion outside of North America with Brazilian industrial partner Solutis Technologias. Solutis provides integrated services in the areas of engineering, supply, construction, assembly and management of projects for Brazilian processing facilities specializing in oil and gas, petrochemical, ethanol and mining. Solutis provides Apprion's industrial wireless applications and networks to Brazil's leading industrial processing facilities. 

This partnership expands Apprion's reach into one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Brazil is one of the largest producers of ethanol in the world and is the largest exporter of the fuel. Brazil experienced the largest source of non-OPEC oil supply growth since 2008, driven by several large, offshore projects and increasing ethanol production. This growth will continue over the next few years and is expected to place Brazil as one of the top six producers of oil and gas and ethanol by the year 2015.

"With the growth of biofuel, petrochemicals, and oil and gas production, industrial wireless applications are clearly needed here in Brazil. Our customers have expressed the need to address the challenges that come with the expected extreme production expansion in the next few years," said Cesar Motta, CEO of Solutis Wireless Brazil. "By working with Apprion to deliver these much needed applications, oil and gas, petrochemical, ethanol and mining facilities will reap the benefits of improved productivity, efficiency, safety, and security that industrial wireless applications have to offer."

Solutis and Apprion have already launched efforts on a number of industrial implementations in Brazil and plan to expand their project base extensively in 2011. Solutis' market strategy includes indirect sales, working with specialized local partners, and direct sales -- a combination that will accelerate Solutis' position as a leading local supplier of wireless and industrial applications in Brazil and improve solution, products and services offerings to their customers.
