Brightec, Inc., Retains Splash Sales, Inc., to Represent PlayGlo™ in the Mid-Atlantic Region

SOUTH NATICK, MA--(Marketwire - September 22, 2009) - Brightec, Inc., (OTCBB: BRTE) creator of the world's first photographic quality glow-in-the-dark media, today announced that it has retained Splash Sales, Inc., ("Splash") of Baldwin, NY, to represent their PlayGlo™ line of glow-in-the-dark puzzles and stickers in the mid-Atlantic states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C.

The retention of Splash is part of a recent nationwide launch of PlayGlo puzzles and stickers by Brightec, Inc. "We are very excited to have such a well-established and respected manufacturer's rep firm to represent our product in this major marketplace," said Patrick Planche, Founder and President of Brightec. "Splash has an incredibly strong portfolio of street accounts, which is a perfect fit for PlayGlo products and we are looking forward to working with this experienced team to help get PlayGlo well positioned in the mid-Atlantic states," added Mr. Planche.

"It's always exciting to be a part of a launch when the product is a first of its kind," said Judy Greenberg, Vice President of Splash. "Sure, there are other glow-in-the-dark products out there but PlayGlo products redefine what it means to glow-in-the-dark. The concept of being able to see an entire image in the dark rather than just a green outline is truly innovative and adds incredible value to these unique puzzles and stickers. Add the benefit of being manufactured entirely in the USA along with a great price point -- and it's a product line that we can't wait to start selling to our customers."

Brightec's initial PlayGlo puzzle collection features six 11" x 15", 100 piece, animal-themed puzzles for children ages 6 and up, at a suggested retail price of $9.99. Also available under the PlayGlo brand, are glow-in-the-dark stickers using Brightec's unique media. Each of the four different sticker collections, with images that complement the puzzle line, comes with repositionable backing, meaning the stickers can be applied to almost any surface and then removed and relocated. The stickers have a suggested retail price of $2.99.

PlayGlo puzzles and stickers are available to qualified retailers. All PlayGlo products are manufactured in the USA.
