Innovative Composites Announces Agreement with RedLeaf Homes to Enter
the Rural and Northern Canadian Housing Market
- RedLeaf targets US$5M in sales in the first 18 months of the contract -
TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Innovative Composites International Inc. ("ICI" or the "Company"), (TSXV: IC) (OTCQX: ICIZF, a producer of patented protected composite products targeting the multi-billion dollar prefabricated modular housing and transportation markets, announced today that it has signed an agreement with RedLeaf
Homes Ltd. ("RLH") granting RedLeaf the right to distribute ICI
prefabricated homes and shelters within northern and rural Canada,
primarily to mining operations, First Nations and other rural
communities. RLH will maintain exclusivity subject to a minimum of
US$5 million in annual revenue.
"We strongly believe that our EcoScape™ modular homes provide the most
cost effective and sustainable, quality housing for the northern and
rural regions across Canada," said ICI's President and CEO Terry Ball.
"Superior insulation, speed of assembly, rot and mold resistance and
enhanced durability are attributes that are very important for this
market. Our EcoScapeTM system offers all that at a very reasonable price point. Leveraging
RedLeaf's experience and established sales channels should allow us to
gain a strong and positive presence in these communities across
Canada. We are very excited about these opportunities, and look
forward to working with RedLeaf Homes to bring these to fruition. "
"We're focused on providing high-quality moderately priced housing
solutions for northern and rural people in Canada," said Andrew Libera,
President of RedLeaf Homes Ltd. "Today the market is served largely by
out-of-date building solutions that result in a tremendous amount of
environmental and monetary waste over the life of a home. These
problems are magnified when you account for the location of many of
these rural home sites. ICI's EcoScape™ modular housing is the perfect
solution for the harsh environment of rural Canada. From shipping to
completion, we are saving time, money and energy every step of the
way. We're excited to be working with the Innovative Composites team.
We feel this is the right thing to do for the people and the planet."

First Nations and other rural communities for the past 12 years selling
multi-million dollar volumes of buildings across Canada. RLH has
already identified a site and secured the required permits for a model
home to be built in Northern Ontario within 90 days. The location of
that show home will allow RLH principals to tour First Nations decision
makers and mining company operations executives through the fully
