Business Description

Industry: Chemicals » Specialty Chemicals
Compare:NEU, SCL, VAL, POL, CYT » details
Flexible Solutions International, Inc. is a Nevada corporation. On May 12, 1998, the Company merged Flexible Solutions, Ltd., a British Columbia corporation, into Flexible Solutions International, Inc. In connection with this merger, it issued 7,000,000 shares of common stock to the former shareholders of Flexible Solutions Ltd. in exchange for all of the outstanding shares of Flexible Solutions Ltd. The Company operates through two wholly-owned subsidiaries: Flexible Solutions Ltd., and NanoChem Solutions Inc. Flexible Solutions and its subsidiaries develop, manufacture and market specialty chemicals which slow the evaporation of water. The Company's primary product, HEAT$AVR, is marketed for use in swimming pools and spas where its use, by slowing the evaporation of water, allows the water to retain a higher temperature for a longer period of time and thereby reduces the energy required to maintain the desired temperature of the water in the pool. Another product, WATER$AVR, is marketed for water conservation in irrigation canals, aquaculture, and reservoirs where its use slows water loss due to evaporation. The Company also manufactures and sells products which automatically dispense HEAT$AVR into commercial size swimming pools or spas at the rate of one ounce per 400 sq. ft. of water surface per day. The Company has 18 non-exclusive distributorships in Canada and the United States for the sale of bulk HEAT$AVR (without the ECO$AVR dispenser) and exclusive distributorships in Australia, Chile, Korea, Argentina, Taiwan, Romania and Western Europe. The Company's TPA products has direct competition with Lanxess AG (spun out of Bayer AG), a German manufacturer of TPAs. The Company's products are covered by a variety of governmental regulations in all countries where it sells these products. These regulations cover packaging, labeling, and product safety.
