BRITE-STRIKE TACTICAL ILLUMINATION RECEIVES 3 NEW PATENTS
Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products Inc. announced today that two new patents on their APALS®; All Purpose Adhesive Light Strips and a third on their Flexaton BIL™ safety baton have been issued by the USPTO. “We are pleased to have these important patents issue. We announced three key patents issuing last June (2015), these three new patents along with our pending patents and trademarks give our company an IP portfolio that is unheard of for a company our size.” Glenn Bushee President and CEO stated.
“APALS® Light Strips represent a strong part of our growth strategy and issued utility patents, along with the fact that NSNs (national stock numbers) have been assigned, assure that Brite-Strike is the sole source provider to the Department of Defense (DOD,) and keep knock-off artists out of the market, ” Mr. Bushee stated. “The opportunity is not only with US and International military forces, but also has huge potential for a variety of consumer sectors,” Mr. Bushee said. “APALS® light strips, which provide LED light for up to 200 hours in a light strip no thicker than a credit card, have both steady on, strobe and off settings with a re-useable 3M® adhesive backing. APALS® Light strips are perfect for hunting, camping, fishing, boating, jogging, cycling as well as pet and child safety. APALS® are considered to be a next generation replacement for chemical light sticks, an estimated $60M business in the US, with both military and commercial applications. We believe the market for APALS® is somewhere between $85M to $125M annually. With strong patents in place, we will now be looking for OEM co-branded partnerships in all sectors that make sense starting at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas next week” Bushee stated.
“Our Flexaton BIL™ (baton integrated light) is another unique, patented product in our line-up” with growth potential in both domestic and overseas military and law enforcement markets” said Mr. Bushee.
