End-to-end transport Solution for Medical therapies and Products Relying on Cold Chain: Secure, Traceable, Reusable

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Southern California based Mergers and Acquisitions firm ProNova Partners has been commissioned to facilitate investment in or the sale of a patented, groundbreaking packaging technology. The technology facilitates a secure, traceable, and reusable end-to-end transport solution for expensive medical therapies and products that rely on the cold chain.

17-year-old Mergers and Acquisitions firm, ProNova Partners, has announced their commission to facilitate the manufacture and sale of a patented, portable refrigerator and freezer that provides remote tracking, monitoring and Chain-of-Custody for therapeutics and vaccines.

It protects temperature sensitive medical therapeutics such as COVID-19 Vaccines and Biological and Cellular Therapies including controlled substances that are being distributed and need to be stored at remote, last mile locations. It can be used for Clinical Trials, Home Infusion, Compounding Pharmacies delivering to the home, Academic Research Laboratories and Consumer applications.

"This new technology will save lives in both developed and emerging countries," announced Rick Carlson CEO and founder of ProNova Partners. "We are proud to be a part of bringing this to the world market."

ProNova Partners has assisted expansion or sale of some 400 firms in its history, in multiple areas of the marketplace. "We are very gratified to be able to lend a hand in the movement of great technology such as this into the market."

The technology has resulted in the smallest, most portable "cold chain" system available, with the longest autonomy time between recharges (>96hrs). It has been built for durability and reliability by the best thermal engineers on the planet. Designed for both transport in an airline cabin or as air cargo freight, it is an all-in-one solution that provides security, real-time alerts, and traceability for temperature sensitive medical products. The system has controlled room temperature, plus refrigerated and frozen set points. It has dual heat and cool modes and is based on a military grade, micro refrigeration compressor.

"This system enables better health care delivery by making the cold chain possible in places where there is limited to no cold chain or electrical infrastructure," concluded Carlson. "By utilizing less than 2 W/Hr, it can easily be recharged with a small solar panel."

This Startup Wants to Get People Talking Again!

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A new Arizona company, JabberYak, is on a mission to engage people with common interests using their ice breakers products, including customized T-Shirts, event badges, name tags, and office name plates designed to ignite meaningful, face-to-face communication without relying on personal devices.

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting more than 40 million adults*. During the pandemic, about four in ten adults in the U.S. reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder. As things start to open post-pandemic, many people are experiencing even more anxiety when thinking about getting back into a social routine after isolating for so long. (*Citation: see link below.)

One area that is most concerning to people is the socialization that comes with returning to the office or events. Many professionals haven't seen their coworkers in over a year and those that are new to the company will be meeting their peers in person for the first time. When you are in the office, you're expected to connect with new people, and it can be difficult to navigate the flow of conversation.

JabberYak is founded by two Scottsdale-based women. Gail Levinthal is a former event planner who immigrated from South Africa in the 1990s, and Shideh Doerr is an entrepreneur and first generation Persian American. The two women developed JabberYak after seeing how difficult it was for those around them to connect with others, especially in large group settings such as corporate and singles events, holiday parties and even family reunions. While on a cruise with her family, Levinthal noticed how many people stopped to talk to her son because of the college shirt he was wearing. She saw that people were more willing to connect if they had a common interest.

The duo connected with serial entrepreneur and investor, Mack Baniameri and launched the JabberYak products in June 2021.

"The pandemic disrupted our lives in such a way that going back to a pre-covid routine can be intimidating," said Gail Levinthal, co-founder and CEO of JabberYak. "It's natural to feel anxious about the world opening up again, but with the right tools in place, the transition can be smooth and seamless. Knowing the interests of the people around you before the first word is even spoken can ease social anxiety and lead to more quality, meaningful conversations."

JabberYak's platform enables individuals to select their top seven personal interests that give insight into who they are. The selected interests then get printed on customized items that can be worn to work, meetings, events and displayed in the office. JabberYak products ultimately create a fun atmosphere, eases social interaction, build relationships, and improve the level of engagement with conference attendees, co-workers or customers.

JabberYak also offers an analytics dashboard to organizers prior to an event, providing valuable insight into who will be attending.

Print’s Not Over – It’s Just Getting a New Lease on Life

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Is print cool or old school? According to the Productivity Network LLC, a Chicago-based print production company, it's a little of both and that's a good thing. In business for one year, the team at the Productivity Network is positive that print's not just sexy, it's downright hot.

Co-owners, Erika Pflederer and Michael Wade, believe that while digital continues to reign, print is far from over. That's why they've extended their hand to those who want to add or re-introduce print into their mix.

"The past year has taught us many things," Pflederer says. "Among those lessons learned are: anything is possible, people are increasingly growing tech-weary, business models are rapidly changing and more and more consumers crave nostalgia. It's these factors and more that point to a comeback for print. It's time for print to shine again."

In fact, Pflederer and Wade were so confident that they bet their careers on it and launched the Productivity Network in September 2020. To date, it's landed some impressive accounts including a well-known packaged goods company and multiple financial businesses.

The co-owners intentionally designed their business to be virtual which provides them the flexibility to work with anyone, anywhere. And being veterans of the print ad business, they have a wealth of resources at their fingertips.

Its model is low overhead, killer service, attention to detail, top talent and the ability to scale up and down as needed.

"We can quickly pivot to meet demand," she says.

Since launching their business, Pflederer and Wade have worked on a variety of print campaigns ranging from billboards and transit signage to bus wraps and business presentations.

"Of course, we do digital work too. We're not that crazy," Pflederer shares. "It's just that we believe print has to be accessible to those who want it and we really know how to do it. There are not many in-house print production services out there anymore and we serve to fill that niche. We work directly with brands too."

Pflederer, who grew up working in her dad's print shop, makes it a point to ask people to think about print.

"Just look around. Go into a shop. Get on a train. Drive on the interstate. Open your mail. Dig into that swag bag. We're surrounded by print. Sometimes people don't even realize they need print until they think about it. 'Oh yeah,' they say. It's not going away and we're here to help," she says.

About Productivity Network

The Productivity Network provides high-end print production services typically found at large advertising agency studios. It can meet a variety of production needs ranging from print to digital and can efficiently and professionally handle ever-changing production needs. Prior to launching Productivity Network, Pflederer and Wade worked for multiple major advertising agencies and for countless top-name brands. They've successfully executed and delivered national and international print campaigns and now they're excited to pass on that expertise and passion directly to their clients.

ITS Looks to A Green Future by Cutting Down on Plastic Packaging

ROCK HILL, S.C. -- For over 30 years, Industrial Test Systems, Inc. (ITS) has been a leading innovator of instruments and chemistries designed to test water quality. The company continues to push industry boundaries by shifting its packaging process and reducing its carbon footprint.

Known among many things for their easy-to-use test strips, ITS has long since packaged their products using blister-style packaging. This packaging style is not only bulky, but it creates unnecessary plastic waste. Despite this, several companies continue to implement blister packaging. ITS however, in an effort to decrease their carbon footprint, has moved away from industry standards and has made strides to produce products focused on sustainability.

ITS recently unveiled a new line of eco-friendly packets. These "pocket packets" use no plastic and opt instead for paper that is light and recyclable. Their packet like design is especially noteworthy as it holds up to 30 water quality tests in a packet that easily fits into the palm of your hand and is no thicker than a few sheets of paper.

This year also brought changes to many of the company's other long-running products. Several products were slimmed down and moved away from plastic blistering in efforts to reduce plastic waste. Amongst these were the Safe Well Check™ and the Safe Tap Check™ Kit for water quality testing designed to measure the major parameters in city and well water.

As the company moves forward, there is excitement to see where their next push towards sustainability takes them.

For more information on any of the products offered by ITS, please contact a knowledgeable ITS Product Manager by calling (803) 329-9712 or toll-free at 1-800-861-9712.

Additional information and product details may also be accessed on the web at https://sensafe.com/, or by sending an inquiry via email to its@sensafe.com

About Industrial Test Systems, Inc.

For 30 years, Industrial Test Systems, Inc. has been a leading manufacturer of instruments and chemistries designed to test water quality within the municipal water treatment, food & beverage, trucking & automotive, pond & aquarium, pool & spa, educational and medical diagnostics industries. ITS is the developer of over 100 tests and proprietary chemistries (many of which have been ETV/EPA performance-verified), including the first and only EPA approved test strip.

International Paper Company – Richmond Container in Richmond, VA Receives Their Sixth ‘Star’ Designation Under the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry’s Voluntary Protection Program

RICHMOND, Va. -- Commissioner C. Ray Davenport announced today that the International Paper Company - Richmond Container in Richmond, Virginia, has been re-approved as a STAR Worksite under Virginia's Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP), the program's highest level of recognition. The facility was honored with their sixth Certificate of Recognition issued on 11/30/2020.

"The management and employees of this facility have exemplified true leadership in the area of occupational safety and health, and I commend them for embracing the cooperative spirit of VPP," said Commissioner Davenport. "I congratulate International Paper Company-Richmond Container on the occasion of their recertification as a VPP STAR Worksite."

International Paper Company's commitment to providing a safe and healthy workplace for its employees is demonstrated by its very low injury and illness rates. The facility has a total three-year average for the TCIR (Total Case Incident Rate for injuries and illnesses) of 2.2 compared with a Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) national rate of 2.5 for this industry, representing a TCIR rate 12% lower than the national average for the industry. The DART rate (Days Away, Restricted, or Transferred injury and illness cases) is 0.3, compared with the 0.7 national rate, which is 57% below the national average for the industry.

As part of the recognition for achieving STAR status under VPP, the worksite is entitled to fly the VPP "STAR Worksite" flag. The site is the only VPP STAR site in Virginia and currently one of 49 for International Paper Company in the United States. VPP includes two levels of participation, Merit and STAR, with STAR being the highest. Similar voluntary protection programs are conducted in other states across the country.

The process for reaching STAR status is very extensive. Since the inception of VPP in 1996, only 68 STAR worksites have been recognized, and only 37 Virginia companies currently retain the STAR/Merit designation. International Paper Company has set a standard of excellence that is second to none.

In Virginia VPP STAR, a cooperative relationship is formed between the VOSH program, the employer, and employees which include the agreement of company leaders to operate exceptional safety and health management systems that meet a rigorous set of occupational safety and health criteria. Participation in the program is voluntary and involves employees in all aspects of the company's safety and health management systems. Requirements include an application, submission of written safety and health policies and procedures, demonstration of successful implementation of programs through injury and illness rates that are below the national average, and an intensive weeklong inspection by a team of VPP experts.

Businesses that participate in VPP substantially improve safety and health protections for employees. VPP STAR sites regularly report decreased bottom line costs associated with reduced injury and illness rates and improved productivity and employee morale. Reducing private sector employer costs associated with injuries, illnesses, and fatal accidents enhances a company's economic viability and competitiveness, and increases available capital for reinvestment, expansion, and new hiring.

DOLI operates six recognition programs. These include:

- Virginia STAR is a cooperative relationship between the VOSH program, the employer, and the employees that include the agreement of company leaders to operate exceptional safety and health management systems that meet a rigorous set of occupational safety and health criteria. Participating employers agree to voluntarily participate in the program and to directly involve employees in all aspects of the company's safety and health management systems. Requirements include an extensive application process, submission of written safety and health policies and procedures, demonstration of successful implementation of those programs through injury and illness rates that are below the national average for the employer's industry, and an intensive weeklong inspection by a team of VPP experts.

- Virginia BEST (Building Excellence in Safety, Health and Training) is a strategic partnership between the DOLI and the Associated General Contractors of Virginia (AGCVA) that recognizes AGCVA members who voluntarily implement highly effective safety and health management systems to benefit construction workers and reduce or eliminate injuries, illnesses, and fatalities on construction sites in Virginia.

- Virginia BUILT is a new strategic partnership between the DOLI and the Associated Builders and Contractors of Virginia (ABCVA) and is designed to encourage and recognize ABC-VA members who voluntarily implement highly effective safety and health management systems to benefit construction workers and reduce or eliminate injuries, illnesses, and fatalities on construction sites in Virginia. The Virginia BUILT program incorporates the ABC STEP program (Safety Training Evaluation Process) as the gateway to participation in Virginia BUILT.

- Virginia CHALLENGE is a formal three stage recognition program that dramatically improves safety and health at the worksite and prepares the company to apply for Virginia STAR recognition.

- VOSH-VADOC CHALLENGE is a strategic partnership between the DOLI and the Virginia Department of Corrections (VADOC) to recognize safety and health excellence at correctional facilities around the Commonwealth. Three stages of participation in VADOC Challenge prepare a site to apply for Virginia STAR recognition. Virginia has the only two correctional facilities in the nation to have received VPP STAR status, Augusta and Lunenburg Correctional Centers. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the DOLI office closest to you at www.doli.virginia.gov or contact Milford Stern, VPP Manager, (540) 562-3580, ext. 123, or Milford.Stern@doli.virginia.gov.

- The Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) recognizes businesses of 250 employees or fewer and is administered by the DOLI Consultative Services Division. Contact Tracy Michaud, Consultation Program Manager, (804) 786-8707 or tracy.michaud@doli.virginia.gov.

DOLI also offers free On-Site Consultation Services to help employers better understand and voluntarily comply with VOSH standards. Priority is given to high hazard workplaces with 250 or fewer employees and all services are offered to employers at no cost. These services helps employers identify and correct potential safety and health hazards by conducting walk-through surveys, abatement advice, on-site training, and program assistance to develop safety and health programs. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the DOLI office at https://www.doli.virginia.gov/about/doli-offices-statewide/ or Tracy Michaud, Consultation Program Manager, (804) 786-8707, or tracy.michaud@doli.virginia.gov.

The Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) program is financed in part by a grant from the U. S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), under §23(g) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The Virginia State Plan is funded by a grant of $4,332,400 federal funds, which constitutes 50% of the State Plan budget excluding any state overmatch funds. Zero percent, or $0.00 of the State Plan budget, is financed through nongovernmental sources.

The Virginia On-Site Consultation Cooperative Agreement program is financed in part by a grant from the U. S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), under §21(d) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The Virginia Consultation program is funded by a grant of $1,189,200 federal funds, which constitutes 90% of the Virginia Consultation program budget excluding any state overmatch funds. Zero percent, or $0.00 of the Virginia Consultation budget, is financed through nongovernmental sources.

"We are so proud of what Packform has achieved through adversity. We have been able to help customers and organizations when they needed help the most.
