COVINGTON, Ky., Feb. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Valley Forge Composite Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: VLYF), developer of state-of-the-art detection systems, including the THOR LVX photonuclear detection system, today announced that it has engaged Hayden IR, a respected, national investor relations firm, to develop and implement a strategic investor relations program. Hayden IR will work with the management of Valley Forge in an effort to increase the Company's visibility and strengthen its relationships with the investment community.
"We are at an inflection point in the development and commercialization of our THOR LVX photo nuclear system, which is technology that significantly enhances the accuracy and speed of threat detection," commented Louis Brothers, president and chief executive officer of Valley Forge Composite. "Accordingly, we believe this is an ideal time to retain a national investor relations firm to ensure we are communicating effectively with current and potential shareholders and help us target additional investors who may be interested in the potential of our technology."
With offices in New York, Phoenix, Minneapolis and San Diego, Hayden IR provides a comprehensive range of investor relations services to a growing list of clients. For more than a decade, Hayden IR has been a recognized leader in driving market recognition and creating sustainable competitive advantages for more than 200 micro- and small-cap companies. Hayden delivers expertise and professionalism in such areas as investor management, relationship building, awareness campaigns, online presence and corporate identity.
Jeffrey Stanlis, a Partner in Hayden IR, commented, "Valley Forge has developed and is aggressively commercializing ground-breaking technology, capable of detecting explosives, IED's, landmines, fissile material, narcotics, targeted chemical and biological agents by comparing molecular composition to contraband composition in a database. Going far beyond imaging technology to provide a more accurate and efficient method of screening entry into secure areas and protecting citizens, this revolutionary concept represents a compelling opportunity for investors and we want potential and long-term investors to understand the full ramifications of this exciting value proposition and Valley Forge's corporate story. The Company's core business, based primarily on its momentum wheel line of products, provides a platform to launch the game-changing THOR LVX system. We believe investors will ultimately recognize that current valuations are based only on the legacy momentum wheel business, not giving any value to the exciting THOR LVX system. We believe this creates a compelling opportunity."About Valley ForgeValley Forge Composite Technologies, Inc., through its subsidiaries, develops, manufactures, and markets detection systems primarily in the United States.
