, May 26, 2022 /CNW/ - Nanalysis Scientific Corp.

The effective date of the executed contract is May 25, 2022 and it expires on May 31, 2028.
"We are pleased to have won this contract to support imaging and other security screening equipment at all airports across Canada," said Sean Krakiwsky, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Nanalysis.

KPrime has begun the phase in process for this project to airports across Canada, and the company anticipates the service coverage to be completed before the end of Q1, 2023.
Martin Corrigan, Vice President and CTO of CATSA states: "We look forward to working with KPrime as they assume the maintenance service responsibilities for our of large fleet of screening equipment across the country."
Kham Lin, Founder and President of KPrime and Managing Director of Nanalysis' Security Business, states: "We have been positioning KPrime to win this contract for several years but needed to be part of a larger organization to conduct business of this size. This contract win is one example of how Nanalysis + KPrime will enable larger business opportunities and value creation for shareholders. We currently provide service in airports and other security markets, and so we are well positioned to expand this business. This business also opens sales channels for Nanalysis' proprietary products going forward. Because of our experience with these types of service contracts, we are very confident in our ability to successfully implement and profitably manage this world-class project."
