Harris & Harris Group Portfolio Company, HZO, Announces Partnerships With Dell and Motorola

NEW YORK, July 31, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harris & Harris Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:TINY), an investor in transformative companies enabled by disruptive science, notes that its portfolio company, HZO, a leader in liquid protection technology for printed circuit board assemblies and electronics, has announced partnerships with both Dell and Motorola.

HZO and Dell have partnered to protect Dell's new Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet designed for on-the-go users who require reliability and performance in the field. The new HZO protected Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet has a wide range of uses that includes emergency response, industrial work and the military. The muscular Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet has been tested to the extreme and carries an IP65 rating, meaning it is protected against both dust and water.

HZO and Motorola have partnered to integrate both water and sweat protection into the new Moto Surround wireless earbuds. With the inclusion of HZO protection, consumers can use their Moto Surround earbuds in more places without worry of damage. The Moto Surround earbuds carry a rating of IP57, which means they are protected from dust and can withstand immersion in fresh water for up to 30 minutes.

“These two recent partnerships, in combination with other unannounced partnerships that HZO has established over the past year, demonstrate the progress HZO is currently making in the marketplace,” says Douglas W. Jamison, CEO of Harris & Harris Group. “As more electronic devices become mobile and as the internet of things (IoT) gains traction, HZO’s technology solutions are being adopted rapidly. HZO permits the protection of electronics from liquid and corrosive environments.”
