SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 13, 2012) - Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned operating subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH) (PINKSHEETS: GRDH), announced today that it has engaged an Arizona-based consultant to provide guidance in its pursuit of international distributors in the western hemisphere. The company has attended security industry conferences ASIS and ISC-West in 2011 and 2012, attracting prospective distributors from across the globe.
Guardian 8 CEO Steve Cochennet commented, "The international response to our Pro V2 product offering has been spectacular. We have received interest from seventeen countries in Central and South America alone." Public documents released by the company indicate that the international market presents a $20 Billion sales opportunity. Guardian 8 cited the need for multi-lingual skills and local market knowledge as the reason for hiring the consultant.
A significant development for Guardian 8 was the assignment of an export classification of "EAR 99" which provides the company with vastly simplified export requirements as compared to other non-lethal weapons categories. Cochennet added, "Our export clearance is only part of the equation and we recognize the need to support our prospective distributors seeking import clearance in their native country. That support begins now."
Guardian 8 is developing a personal defense product that emphasizes a 'layered defense' approach to protection. The company received its second nomination for "Security's Best" from ASIS and finalists are expected to be announced in September 2012.
