Ottawa – 28 February 2018 – BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSX.V: BLM) is pleased to announce revenue of $7.6 million and net income of $101,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, ended December 31, 2017.
In light of its ongoing integration of services and products, BluMetric continues to focus on key markets and key clients to support its growth. The Mining, Government, Food & Beverage, Military, Industrial Wastewater, and Commercial/Land Development sectors are expanding, and the Company is active in all with steady successes this quarter.
BluMetric is in a good position to achieve organic growth with its established clients and substantial new growth in targeted sectors. Providing solutions that are both innovative and dependable for existing clients while using new technology to address emerging contaminants and secure new clients will drive the business forward.
“During the first quarter we began re-tasking the organization on two key initiatives,” said Dan Scroggins, Interim CEO and Senior Vice President, Research & Innovation of BluMetric. “First, we concentrated a substantial portion of our efforts in areas such as government and mining, where we have been successful in the past. Second, we refocused our remaining resources on sectors with the greatest growth potential: industrial, commercial, and food and beverage. Scott MacFabe, our new CEO as of March 1, 2018, will add strength to these initiatives and we feel that BluMetric now has the tools and is well-positioned for significant client-centred growth.”
