XLERATOR(R) High-Speed, Energy-Efficient Hand Dryer is Awarded the Made in USA Seal of Certification XLERATOR(R) Helps Facilities in the Government and Private Sectors Reduce Waste, Qualify for LEED Credits and Save Money

EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. & DELRAY BEACH, Fla., May 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Made in USA Certified, Inc., the leader in independent, third party assurance verification for genuine Made in USA products, is proud to announce that the XLERATOR(R) line of high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryers have been granted the Made in USA Certified Seal of Certification.

The American made XLERATOR(R) is the only hand dryer that is MADE IN USA CERTIFIED(TM), working in compliance with the Buy American provision of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), which ensures that stimulus money continues to support American innovation and manufacturing while restoring and renovating federal facilities into high-performance, green buildings. It also meets the federal government's funding guidelines for K-12 schools, including modernization, renovation, and repairs consistent with a recognized green building rating system.

Eight years after its official launch, the XLERATOR(R) hand dryer by Excel Dryer, Inc. has established itself as the new industry standard by which other dryers are measured. Unlike conventional hand dryers' lengthy 30 to 45 second drying time, the XLERATOR(R) completely dries hands 3 times faster (in 10-15 seconds) and uses 80% less energy than conventional hand dryers. XLERATOR(R) also delivers a 95% cost savings when compared to paper towels, eliminates maintenance and waste, while creating a more hygienic restroom environment. A recent peer reviewed ISO 14040 Life Cycle Assessment of XLERATOR(R) confirmed it reduces the carbon footprint of hand drying by 50-70% when compared to both traditional hand dryers and 100% recycled paper towels.

Currently, XLERATOR(R) is installed in a variety of busy, high traffic government restrooms, including high-profile federal destinations such as the United States Green Building Council's headquarters in Washington D.C.(1), several facilities in the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Coast Guard and numerous Federal Prisons. XLERATOR(R) is also the official hand dryer specification of U.S. Navy vessels and are currently installed in the USS Nimitz, USS Fitzgerald and USS Lincoln.

DeMatteo stated, "Recently XLERATOR(R) hand dryers were installed at our Delray Beach corporate headquarters and everyone appreciates the quick, high-speed results of these dryers.
