BLAINE, WA--(Marketwire - Jun 6, 2012) - Hollund Industrial Marine, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HIMR) ("Hollund" or the "Company") announced today that the company's Vice President, Sheldon Romain will lead Hollund's first team organized under the "Project Team Initiative," which launched this past May to maximize marketing efforts, boost production and accelerate market entry around the world.
"With Peter Meier's mandate to broaden and strengthen underwater forest and mining concessions and partnerships, we took immediate action in forming the U.S. Underwater Forest Project Development Team," stated Mr. Roman, Vice President of Hollund Industrial Marine, Inc. "While global opportunities for Hollund seem plentiful in places like China, South America and Africa, our market is on the apparent upswing in the U.S. and we intend to explore it fully"
Project Teams such as the U.S. Underwater Forest Project Development Team will appropriately manage Hollund's resources to effectively tap the strengths of its networks -- advancing strategic goals. Teams will build and expand underwater forest concessions in partnership with state, local governments and utilities. Strategic alliances will also be formed with those entities owning or managing underwater forests.
Hollund's U.S. Team brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the space. Management strongly believes that under the direction of Romain, the vast network and depth of services to be offered by Hollund's U.S. team could potentially benefit U.S. operators seeking to increase sales, greatly.
Having already begun to market in states like Florida and Montana, people close to the company believe that the U.S. Team will further accelerate Hollund's market entry. With states like Michigan, where permits to harvest submerged logs from the Great Lakes are being offered for the first time in 8 years, management is fairly confident that with the technology Hollund offers, the projected number of concessions -- in the U.S. alone -- will likely be met if not exceeded.
