TAIPEI, Taiwan, February 22, 2008 - Antig Technology (www.antig.com), a leading fuel cell stack and solutions company based out of Taiwan, announced today that Brent McKendry has been appointed Chief Executive Officer, succeeding Antig founder Bill Chen, who remains on Antig's Board of Directors.
McKendry brings with him more than 17 years of extensive experience in high tech growth industries and has an impressive track record of success with startup companies both in Taiwan and US. His prior experience included software developer Ulead Systems, internet postage company Stamps.com and Questerra, a data visualization company. McKendry originally comes from New Zealand and graduated from Victoria University, Wellington New Zealand. "Given his extensive experience working with early stage technology companies and the impressive track record in growing and expanding businesses, we are excited to have Brent join Antig's dedicated team. His deep expertise and leadership skills will allow us to accelerate our growth and help drive fuel cell commercialization." said Calvin Shu, Antig's Chairman of the Board.
"I am thrilled by the opportunity to lead an exciting and passionate team forward as we take fuel cell technologies to the broader market. Antig's proprietary H2PowerChipTM stack design represents a significant improvement over existing technologies and one that we are sure will lead to greater fuel cell adoption - something that will benefit all fuel cell companies and renew faith in the industry." Said McKendry.
McKendry added that "Antig's customers are system makers or companies looking to market and sell their own fuel cell systems. With manufacturing partnerships in Taiwan and China, we are able to help these companies more cost effectively bring fuel cell products to market. This is done by providing ready-made "white-box" solutions, or made to order custom solutions designed for a specific type of application. Antig can also help fuel cell companies lower costs by providing core stack technology as well as access to an entire fuel cell component supply chain."
Antig is currently working with number of partners who expect to release product to market in late 2008. Antig will unveil its complete 2008 fuel cell product lineup at "Hannover Messe" in Germany (April 21-25), Demonstration units will be on display at Fuel Cell Expo in Japan (February 27-29 , Booth # 5-2).
