KIMBERLY, Wis., Feb. 21, 2011 – Aurizon Ultrasonics, LLC has been selected as one of Wisconsin Entrepreneur’s Network’s (WEN)Innovation 25 companies, making it eligible for additional resources and assistance in applying for federal grants through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.
“We are very pleased to have been selected as an Innovation 25 company, and we look forward to working with the experienced staff at WEN to put together high-quality grant applications for government research funding,” said Aurizon Ultrasonics CEO Paul McCann.
“Our initial work in this program is targeted on research in the Ultrasonically-assisted Diesel Fuel Injection (USDFI) initiatives at Aurizon Ultrasonics,” said McCann. “Our aim is to continue targeting our investment in USDFI technology development toward research applications where our nozzle can solve problems which agencies like the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Army have identified in their 2010/2011 Phase I solicitations.”
Aurizon Ultrasonics and other Innovation 25 companies will receive hands-on assistance from WEN’s statewide system of service providers offering a comprehensive set of public services targeted at entrepreneurs in technology-based manufacturing. The network includes chambers of commerce, county-based economic development corporations, community-based organizations, technical colleges, Small Business Development Centers, women’s centers, and other organizations.
WEN is funded in part by the Wisconsin Department of Commerce and managed by the University of Wisconsin-Extension’s Division of Entrepreneurship and Economic Development.
“The expertise available through this program will help us continue our dedication to advancing our ultrasonic technology from concept to commercialization so we can deliver differentiated, customized ultrasonic solutions for industrial processes and applications,” said Bob Cool, Aurizon Ultrasonics Executive Vice President. “We see the SBIR program as another way to get our technology platforms included in solving real problems in the marketplace.”
