The Company also announced that its subsidiary, Braille Battery, won the Global Media Award for Best Product at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) convention in Las Vegas for its GreenLite G20 lithium starting battery.

As quoted in the press release:

“This year has been one of remarkable achievements for Grafoid and our staff, our science and especially our advances towards graphene’s commercialization,” said Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer Gary Economo.

“We were deeply honoured to have been nominated as New Business of the Year by the Kingston Chamber of Commerce, and now, even more so after winning this prestigious award,” Mr. Economo said.

The business award was the first of two significant achievements. Grafoid’s subsidiary, Braille Battery, Inc. of Sarasota, Florida won the Global Media Award for Best Product at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) convention in Las Vegas for its GreenLite G20 lithium starting battery.

Braille Battery, acquired by Grafoid to develop a first-to-market high performance graphene li-ion automotive battery, developed the first lithium starter battery. It continues to be the global market leader in ultra-lightweight high performance batteries for the racing industry.

It was Braille’s fourth consecutive SEMA win in the Best New Product category because of the company’s ongoing development of new products for street and track.
