Relocating UK Operations to Meet Growing Demand for GEM Steam Traps
Larger production facility will more than double throughput capacity.
OTTAWA, ONTARIO – November 13, 2023 – Thermal Energy International Inc. (“Thermal Energy” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: TMG, OTCQB: TMGEF), a provider of innovative energy efficiency and carbon emission reduction solutions to major corporations around the world, is excited to announce the relocation of its UK operations to a larger industrial unit on the outskirts of Bristol. The move comes as a strategic response to the remarkable growth in demand for the Company's proprietary GEM™ steam trap product, which has seen average monthly volumes increase more than 85% over the past year. Site adaptations have already commenced, and the move is expected to be completed in December.
“We have experienced tremendous growth in our GEM business and this new facility will help us accommodate the growing demand and continue to provide the exceptional quality and service our customers expect,” said William Crossland, Thermal Energy CEO. “The new production facility is 2.5X the size of our current manufacturing space and will allow us to not only more than double throughput capacity from current levels, but also provides space for new in-house equipment testing – further increasing efficiency and agility to meet customer lead-time requirements – and more space for research and development, helping us maintain our competitive advantage in the market. Finally, the new location offers improved logistics, enabling faster and more cost-effective transportation of materials and products.”
The growing demand for Thermal Energy’s GEM steam traps can be attributed to the increasing number of companies around the world committing to reducing their carbon emissions, compounded by the continually increasing cost of carbon and ongoing volatility in natural gas prices. Improving thermal energy efficiency is the fastest, cheapest, and easiest way to reduce industrial carbon emissions and GEM steam traps provide a high return on investment with a short, compelling payback.

This press release contains forward-looking statements relating to, and amongst other things, based on management’s expectations, estimates, and projections, the anticipated benefits of the new facility, the anticipated effectiveness of the Company’s products and services, the timing of revenues to be received by the Company, the anticipated effects of COVID-19 on the business, backlog, and revenue, and the expectation that orders in backlog will become revenue.
Information as to the amount of heat recovered, energy savings, and payback period associated with Thermal Energy International’s products are based on the Company’s own testing and average customer results to date. Statements relating to the order-intake, expected installation and revenue recognition for projects, statements about the anticipated effectiveness and lifespan of the Company’s products, statements about the expected environmental effects and cost savings associated with the Company’s products, and statements about the Company’s ability to cross-sell its products and sell to more sites are forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve several risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. Orders received in a fiscal year may not become revenue for the Company within such fiscal year. Many factors, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, could cause events and results to differ materially from those stated. Anticipated benefits from the new facility, the fulfilment of orders, installation of products, and activation of products could all be delayed for several reasons, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, which would result in anticipated revenues from such projects being delayed or in the most serious cases eliminated. Actions taken by the Company’s customers and factors inherent in the customer’s facilities but not anticipated by the Company can have a negative impact on the expected effectiveness and lifespan of the Company’s products and on the expected environmental effects and cost savings expected from the Company’s products. Any customer’s willingness to purchase additional products from the Company and whether orders in the Company’s backlog as described above will turn into revenue is dependent on many factors, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, including but not limited to the customer’s perceived needs and the continuing financial viability of the customer. The Company disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any such statements except as required by law. Readers are referred to the risk factors associated with the Company’s business as described in the Company’s most recent Management’s Discussion and Analysis available at www.sedarplus.ca.
