Liquipel Expands Globally

Liquipel Opens New Territories in Australia, Brazil and China; Announces New Board Members, Advisors at Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2012) - Liquipel, the breakthrough company of CES 2012 and an Edison Awards 2012 top finalist, is excited to announce at the Mobile World Congress 2012 a licensing agreement with Australia's Vita Group, the expansion of operations to Brazil and China, and the addition of six new board members and advisors who bring with them decades of experience, expertise and knowledge. Using the latest advancements in nano-coating, Liquipel's patented equipment and patent-pending process creates a liquid-repellent coating that is 1,000 times thinner than a human hair but will last the life of the device. The process is virtually untraceable, non-toxic, and will not affect nor compromise the look, feel and performance of the device.

Liquipel will be at ShowStoppers and can be found at Hall 2.0, Booth 2B127.

"The growth of Liquipel since our debut in January at the Consumer Electronics Show has been nothing short of phenomenal," said founder and co-president Kevin Bacon. "We are thrilled to have such a stellar team of uniquely qualified individuals demonstrate their faith in Liquipel," said Danny McPhail, founder and co-president.

Liquipel is opening operations in Brazil and China and has appointed Vita Group, Australia's largest mobile communications specialist retailer, to provide its new, revolutionary mobile-phone waterproofing protection to mobile customers in Australia.
