VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 22, 2013) - Pyng Medical Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PYT) (the "Company") today announced the completion of the manufacturing transfer of its highest volume product, FAST1, to Donatelle Plastics, Inc. (http://www.donatellemedical.com) of New Brighton, Minnesota, USA. Founded as a privately owned tool design and fabrication business in 1967, Donatelle has evolved into an FDA compliant, ISO-9001:2000 and -13485:2003 certified full-service medical device manufacturer that ships product worldwide. The Company has also begun to forge a technology partnership with Donatelle, with the goal of improving the efficiency of current products and bringing new products to market in the future. The Company is no longer performing manufacturing operations in Richmond, BC, Canada, but Richmond remains the Company's headquarters.
The Company today also announced that MDR Specialty Distribution Corp, of Newport News, Virginia, USA, has become its new North American Warehouse. This move was executed to reduce costs, enhance logistics of the entire supply-chain, and improve customer service. The company has already realized benefits in these areas since this transfer was finalized. Both MDR and Excelera Corp. (the Company's largest shareholder with approximately 17.7% of the Company's outstanding shares) are held under common ownership.
