89 Days ago

New Process to Be Installed at All Five Manufacturing Facilities Prior to Summer Targets Increased Capacity to Ship Over $4M of Water Monthly.

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Mar 30, 2016) - The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (OTCQB: WTER) (the "Company"), developers of an innovative state of the art proprietary electrolysis beverage process packaged and sold in 500ml, 700ml, 1-liter, 3-liter and 1-gallon sizes under the trade name Alkaline88, today announced that a significant technical advancement to their proprietary electrolysis equipment has resulted in an ability to more than double the daily product output at their primary bottling facility in Arizona. 

The combined teamwork of the Company's chemical and engineering team led to a breakthrough manufacturing process which has dramatically improved production capacity. This technical advancement offers immediate scalability to meet growth projections for the Company's upcoming fiscal year. The increased capacity will allow the Company to aggressively pursue single serving 500ml, 700ml and 1 liter sales opportunities through its Direct Store Distributor (DSD) channel. The Company plans to install the new process at all five strategically located manufacturing facilities in time for the summer sales season. Once fully implemented, The Alkaline Water Company will have the capacity to ship over $4 million of water every month.

"The ingenuity of our technical team has provided us the opportunity to increase capacity both quickly and economically," stated Mr. Steven Nickolas, Company CEO and President. "Even more importantly, we achieved this new capacity without the addition of 'PH buffers' to our formulation, which appears to be a recent and increasingly common but unfortunate practice elsewhere in our sector. We are very proud of our product, so maintaining the integrity of our water while employing a superior technology to increase our overall capacity is a huge win for us. While we continuously aim to refine our processes and distribution methods, we believe this particular advancement will prove instrumental in meeting the growing consumer demand for Alkaline88. With the added capacity and increased sales, we look forward to continued growth and an incredible fiscal 2016 for our Company and Shareholders."
