VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – (June 22, 2017) – Mission Ready Services Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:MRS) is pleased to report strengthened production and sales volumes for the current quarter with Q2 2017 revenues projected to be approximately $1.8MM, an increase exceeding 65% over the same period in 2016. These revenues represent the combined sales from the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries – PTF Manufacturing (“PTFM”), Wild Things USA (“Wild Things”), and 10-20 Services (“10-20”) – and will be reflected in the Company’s 2nd quarter financial results due August 29, 2017.
“We are very pleased with the growth we are seeing during what is typically the slowest quarter of the year in terms of sales and revenue generation,” states Jeff Schwartz, President & CEO of Mission Ready Services Inc.
Manufactured in-house at the Company’s 22,000 square foot facility in Jacksboro, Tennessee, PTFM delivered $425,000 in B-Cool Concealed Carriers to White Horse R&D, Inc. (“White Horse”) in addition to the fulfillment of multiple additional purchase orders over the most recent 11 weeks. The $7.98MM commitment for the B-Cool concealed carriers to be delivered over a 36-month period was first announced in a February 8, 2017 news release. Production at PTFM is in full swing fulfilling purchase orders and delivering the quality-assured products per client specifications and on schedule. Additionally, while generating sales revenues for the quarter of approximately $865,000, Wild Things began transitioning its products to be manufactured in-house at PTFM as part of the ongoing integration initiatives.
Mr. Schwartz continues, “At PTFM, rapid prototyping, custom design and manufacturing is what we do, and we do it well. Our process from concept to delivery – the B-Cool concealed carrier being a prime example – is highly scalable and gives us a competitive edge in capturing a significant volume of the market share within the vast and growing personal protective equipment industry. Our team – design, production, sales & administration – is comprised of some of the best and most experienced professionals in the industry who will be instrumental in helping us reach our growth targets both short and long term.”
