Sanitec Industries Not Distracted by 'Frivolous' Litigation; Medical waste firm continues operations under voluntary Chapter 11

Sanitec Industries, Inc. (www.sanitecindustries.com) today announced its environmentally sound medical waste treatment services will continue without disruption while it vigorously defends itself against what it believes to be unwarranted and frivolous litigation by a Texas firm.

As an element of that defense, the Sun Valley, CA-based company earlier today filed for voluntarily Chapter 11 protection pending the outcome of this litigation. Sanitec Industries is confident its business will continue to thrive while this matter is quickly and equitably resolved

According to Sanitec Industries' president, Jim Harkess, "The filing is in the best interest of our customers, creditors and shareholders by allowing us to focus on our business and avoiding the continued distraction of protracted litigation."
