Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 7, 2021) - Universal PropTech Inc. (TSXV: UPI) (OTCQB: UPIPF) (FSE: 8LH) ("UPI" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that one of the Company's Indoor Air Quality ("IAQ") partners has received a significant Purchase Order ("Order") to provide IAQ equipment. The partner's Order is estimated to be valued between $6.5 and $10 Million. The Company will receive commissions in the range of approximately CAD $350,000 to CAD $500,000. The Company expects to receive payment of these commissions between Q4 2020 and Q1 2021.
Chris Hazelton, the CEO of Universal PropTech Inc. stated, "Indoor air quality solutions present a significant market opportunity for UPI as we navigate through this pandemic and support the reopening plans of government, businesses, schools and other institutions. This significant order represents their growing interest to invest in indoor air quality solutions to keep tenants, workers and students safe from COVID-19, the flu and other airborne pathogens."
Mr. Hazelton continued: "While we hope we are seeing the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, these past two years have demonstrated the critical need for investment in indoor air quality. It takes time for government to deploy allocated funding, and we are now seeing the dollars being deployed in this critical area. We are working with clients on return-to-work strategies across the spectrum integrating IAQ, building automation and mechanical services, and are looking at limiting disruption to commercial and personal lives due to airborne illnesses of today and the future."
"Our 2021 strategy is working, and our expansion of offerings into areas such as IAQ and our choices in technologies are already paying off," stated Frank Carnevale, Chief Growth Officer, Universal PropTech Inc. "We have begun discussions with distributors and dealers to support our choices of products, and we are eager to sign up new partners, over the coming weeks and months."
