UV Flu Technologies appoints board member

Glenn Bushee joins the air quality specialist which is nearing launch of UV-400 air purifier

Glenn Bushee has joined the board of UV Flu Technologies. He is currently president of Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products and for the past 20 years has held senior management positions at Brite-Strike, 3P North America and Sunbeam Corp.

For a number of years, Bushee lived in China to oversee all facets of production and formed a network of industry contacts and familiarity with several manufacturing concerns of significant interest to UV Flu. While he was president of 3P North America, for example, Bushee designed and sold Comfort Mist UV air purifiers, which sold almost US$20m of product annually.

UV Flu says it anticipates commercial availability of the updated ViraTech UV-400 shortly. The latest production run of the air purifier combines patented UV bacteria killing technology, which has been cleared by the US FDA for use as a medical device, with a newly developed catalytic UV technology, and also incorporates an activated carbon screen.

“We believe the UV-400, with these new product improvements combined with its patented UV technology, is the most effective, bacteria-killing air purifier in the world today,” said Jack Lennon, president of UV Flu Technologies.

“We have worked diligently with our engineers in China to improve the effectiveness of our product, and provide even more value for our customers. We are getting requests for information on a daily basis from countries all over the world, particularly from hospitals.”
