POMPANO BEACH, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- Cyclone Power Technologies (OTCQB: CYPW) developer of the all-fuel, clean-tech Cyclone Engine, announced that it has received support from key local and federal political leaders in Ohio for the Company's plans to advance its engine production operations, including the possible expansion of a factory and hiring of engineers and manufacturing experts in that state. The meetings were held in Carroll, Ohio, at the site of one of Cyclone's manufacturing partners, Precision CNC (www.Precision-CNC.com).
Cyclone is currently working with several major partners, including the U.S. Army - Tank and Automotive Research Development & Engineering Command (TARDEC) and Ohio State University's Center for Automotive Research (CAR), to transition certain of its engine models from prototype to production. These are compact, efficient engines capable of utilizing virtually any fuel or raw heat source to produce shaft power to run electric generators and mobile applications. Among the many uses for this technology include micro-grid waste-to-power generators and portable power units for emergency response and defense customers.
Among the options that may be available to Cyclone include job creation incentives, property tax credits, and economic development bonds for the purchase of equipment and facilities. The meetings were attended by Economic Development Director for Fairfield County Bob Clark, Fairfield County Commissioner David Levacy, Columbus 2020 Project Manager Katie Hamilton, and U.S. Representative Steve Stivers (OH-15).
Rep. Stivers, whose district encompasses Precision CNC's facility, commented: "I thank Cyclone and Precision CNC for showing me the incredible work both companies are doing to develop clean energy technologies that can support the diversification of our energy resources, and create dozens of engineering and production jobs here in Ohio. Small businesses like Cyclone and Precision CNC are the engines for economic growth in the United States by creating real value through research and manufacturing. I support their ingenuity and efforts."
Christopher Nelson, President of Cyclone, stated: "We thank local leaders and Congressman Stivers for their strong support of our mission to transition Cyclone engines into production. This is a challenging process for any small business, but with the assistance of leaders who are determined to promote research and development, and encourage business growth, our chances for success are greatly enhanced. We are very appreciative to Fairfield County for its early support of these plans."
