United Treatment Centers, Inc. Announces Definitive Joint Venture Agreement With Pump & Brush Finland Oy


8/13/2009 10:26:46 AM

ASTORIA, NY--(Marketwire - August 13, 2009) -

United Treatment Centers, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: UTRM) announced today the signing of a definitive joint venture agreement with Pump & Brush Finland Oy, which was a prerequisite to the market launch of an innovative and proprietary waterless toothbrush.

The Research and Development department of United Treatment Centers has completed testing and refining Pump & Brush Finland Oy's pump system to enhance functionality and reliability. Under the provisions of the contract, UTRM will enjoy exclusive rights of Pump & Brush Finland Oy's U.S. Pat. No. 5,918,995 and its foreign counterparts to manufacture and sell UTRM's manual waterless toothbrush. This license secures UTRM's global position to be the sole provider of a product that will revolutionize dental hygiene. Significantly, UTRM has a patent pending, which will strengthen the company's growing market footprint in the multibillion dollar oral Healthcare industry.

Globally, there are over two (2) billion people without access to sanitary water, and the market for a toothbrush that does not require potable water is huge. Dental hygiene has suffered because of this lack of access, despite the global charities' best efforts. Three (3) million people annually are victims of waterborne diseases. In developed countries, the water free toothbrush markets include the military, business and leisure travellers and outdoor sport enthusiasts.

Frank Ottaviani, President of United Treatment Centers, said, "The possibilities and potentials born from the coupling of Pump & Brush's proven technology, and a 15 year track record of over $100,000,000 in sales, and United Treatment Centers Innovative technology is staggering. The toothbrush industry has not seen many improvements for years. We are confident that the changes we are bringing to market will be explosive and that Aquafree will soon be a familiar household name."

Mr. JP Puurunen of Pump & Brush added, "Both our companies are excited about this joint venture and are looking forward to presenting the Aquafree toothbrush to market in the very near future."

For more information on UTRM's Aquafree Product line, please call 1-877-AQUAFREE (1-877-278-2373) and leave off the last "E" for our Environment.

UTRM is a Wyoming-based company, with business operations that promote a revolutionary, patent pending oral care product which will change the way people perform their daily dental hygiene task -- brushing teeth. UTRM will oversee out-sourced production of a patent pending consumer product focused on the $4 billion United States oral care market segment comprised of toothbrushes and toothpaste. The Waterless Tooth Brush is unique with significant advantages over existing and traditional toothbrushes: it cleans and prevents cavities 35% better than traditional toothpaste because it uses liquid dentifrice, so toothpaste is no longer required to brush, allowing the user to brush virtually anywhere at any time with no water needed.
