July 8, 2014



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- "This has certainly been an excellent year for NanoMech," Chairman and CEO Jim Phillips said. "The company continues to gain momentum and it is the innovators who will help drive results, efficiencies and progress." Phillips also noted, "Our groundbreaking products dramatically improve performance, durability and sustainability, while significantly decreasing costs to manufacture."

Deborah Wince-Smith, CEO of the Council on Competitiveness (www.compete.org) and also a member of NanoMech's Board of Directors, praises NanoMech for their innovative work. "In a world of transformation, nothing matters more to the competitiveness of companies and countries than innovation and manufacturing prowess. The ability to develop and deploy the most cutting-edge tools and products to bolster U.S. advanced manufacturing will deliver outsized benefits to the U.S. industrial base. NanoMech is at the leading edge of a resurgent U.S. manufacturing capability rich with innovation. Prince Saud is also a Director of the Global Federation of Competitiveness Councils which is keenly interested in innovation, especially nanotechnology."

The Prince toured NanoMech's factory, laboratories and world headquarters in Springdale and met with Mr. Phillips and Dr. Ajay Malshe, NanoMech's CTO and Founder, to discuss opportunities involving NanoMech's revolutionary enhanced fossil fuel technology. A trip has been planned for Mr. Phillips and Dr. Malshe to visit key R&D facilities in Saudi Arabia.

Prince Saud also visited the Institute of Nanoscience and Engineering at the University of Arkansas. "The Institute of Nanoscience and Engineering is a major regional asset to The Region as nano engineering companies can utilize the vast array of scientific apparatuses and electron microscopes to help advance their technology and industry breakthrough products that increase America's global manufacturing competitiveness," Phillips said. NanoMech rents the Institute's scanning electron microscope for surface morphology, cross-sectional analysis and elemental analysis. It uses the Institute's transmission electron microscope for grain/crystal size analysis and elemental analysis, and its X-ray diffraction allows the firm to determine crystal structures/orientation for estimating crystalline.

As part of the visit to NanoMech, Prince Saud was provided a special tour of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art by Chairman and Founder Alice Walton. While on the museum tour, Prince Saud had the opportunity to also meet Walmart CEO Doug McMillon and members of the Crystal Bridges Board of Directors.

Prince Saud then visited with Governor Beebe and Phillips at the Capitol to talk about the economic impact companies like NanoMech have on the State's economy and how the innovations that are developed as a direct result of the work they are doing position the State as a leader in groundbreaking technology and international commerce. Governor Beebe had an engaging discussion with Prince Saud on the history of Saudi Arabia, its government, culture and business models.
