CLEVELAND, Nov. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innovest Global Inc. (OTC Markets: IVST) (the “Company” or “Innovest”), a conglomerate with operations in commercial and industrial products and services, biotechnology, and construction & building materials, is excited to announce that Chagrin Safety Supply (CSS), an Innovest Global Company, just closed a four-year contract extension providing safety supplies to the University Hospital and Case Medical Center administration buildings in Cleveland, Ohio. This contract will further boost revenue for Innovest’s Commercial & Industrial Division and creates a stepping stone for additional business in 2019. CSS revenue for 2018 exceeds 2017 revenue, and has benefited from larger contracts, including the recently announced six-figure order of HAZMAT boots delivered to the United States Navy.
For Innovest’s acquired companies, 2018 has been marked by high-revenue contracts with large and very notable clients. Increased revenue after acquisition is a result of both successful integration into the Innovest business model, and Innovest being very appealing as a vendor to large clients.
University Hospitals are ranked number 2 in Ohio and consistently rank in the Top 50 nationally, according to the organization ‘U.S. News’ which evaluates each hospital in up to 16 medical specialties. In most specialties, the top 50 hospitals nationally are numerically ranked and the University Hospitals Cleveland are ranked in the top 50 in almost all categories.
“Case Medical Center is a great client and I’m thrilled that since coming under the Innovest umbrella, they added two more facilities in addition to the buildings we already service. This contract represents the confidence and satisfaction of our supply agreement and I’m pleased that they have extended our relationship four years,” said Chagrin Safety Supply president, Bill Oler.
“The fact that University Hospitals and in particular, Case Medical Center trust us to maintain the new standards set by OSHA in 2015 for workplace first aid requirements illustrates the credibility of our Safety Group. The burden and liability is on the employer to identify workplace hazards and they trust our team to maintain these high standards. It's exciting that our commitment to excellence is rewarded, and that they have expanded the contract and renewed for a four year term,” said Dan Martin, Chief Executive Officer of Innovest. “Bill Oler and his team continue to set the bar high, and we would not have grown at such a tremendous rate in 2018 without them. They are highly regarded professionals with decades of experience, and it shows.”
