ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Seawright Holdings, Inc. (OTC:SWRI) (BULLETIN BOARD: SWRI) today announced two new strategies to increase revenues for the Company and its shareholders, including selling excess water to major bottlers and becoming involved in the growing biofuels market.
First, Seawright intends to sell excess capacity from the more than 300 million gallons per year of natural spring water produced at its property in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley to existing, high volume bottled spring water manufacturers who would benefit from Seawright's strategic location in order to produce and distribute their brands more cost effectively in the Mid-Atlantic market. Seawright expects to provide spring water to these manufacturers under long term supply contracts.
Seawright completed several construction projects and equipment upgrades at its 144 acre property in preparation for business strategy. The volume of water produced by Seawright Springs would yield approximately 70 million cases of bottled water per year, translating to 1.6 billion 16.9 ounce bottles. The bottled water industry is a high growth, $14 billion market, with a significant portion located on the East Coast of the U.S. in close proximity to Seawright Springs,
Joel Sens, CEO of Seawright Holdings, said that "environmentally protected sources of high volume, high quality natural spring water in close proximity to major markets are extremely rare and valuable." He stressed that "as fuel prices climb and producers become more environmentally conscious, the transportation component has a much larger impact on price sensitive commodities such as bottled spring water. Being in close proximity to major markets has significantly increased the value of our natural spring asset."
Seawright has recently launched its own Seawright Springs brand bottled water in a distinctive package for the retail market. Seawright will continue to produce the "Seawright Springs Premium Natural Spring Water" brand. "We anticipate, however, that the bulk of our revenues will come from partnership arrangements with major bottlers who will buy the excess water capacity from Seawright Springs," Mr. Sens said.
Seawright's second new strategy partners its existing business approach of owning and controlling important assets with the emerging biofuels industry. Seawright is negotiating to acquire commodity producing assets in the emerging biofuels market. Technological advances in biofuel production have given renewed life to historically underutilized commodities such as waste vegetable oils and animal byproducts for use as renewable automotive and home heating fuels. "This is an exciting and potentially high growth market place and consistent with our strategy to expand our commodity producing asset holdings," Mr. Sens said. Seawright is also in discussions to acquire an interest in a bio-diesel manufacturing plant that will be capable of producing up to 7 million gallons per year of high quality bio-diesel fuel.
