Nanosys, Inc. today
announced that it hosted US Representative Zoe Lofgren of the 16th California
Congressional district, San Jose, for a tour of its nanotechnology plant. Nanosys
is poised to make an economic impact on Silicon Valley by expanding its manufacturing
and R and D. Representative Lofgren focused her attention on Nanosys projects
leading to energy independence and more jobs in the region.
On display for Rep. Lofgren were products the company is gearing up to launch
in several major categories. Rep. Lofgren reviewed products ranging from bright
new cell phone displays with near perfect color gamut, more efficient batteries,
and advanced bandages for wounded soldiers which are all made with Nanosys'
architected, process ready components.
"I'm confident that we can turn this economic downturn into an opportunity
by investing in our national infrastructure and in our emerging green economy,"
said Rep. Lofgren. "America's greatest resource has always been its unique
innovative spirit. It's this innovative spirit that will guide us to a stronger
and greener economy, and I was delighted to see it in action at Nanosys."
"We're fortunate to have such a strong technology advocate as Representative
Lofgren in our backyard," said Jason Hartlove, Nanosys chief executive
officer. "We look forward to being part of the economic recovery of Silicon
Valley with our advanced technology product offerings."
