Fonon Corporation Announces Expansion into South American Market

Increased capital investment in industrial laser equipment expands footprint of Fonon brand Laser Photonics

LAKE MARY, FL, February 15, 2016 - Fonon Corporation (OTC: FNON) today announced its expansion into additional markets in South America, increasing its acceptance footprint across the continent and securing a number of strategic agreements in both Portuguese-speaking and Spanish-speaking markets.

The companys laser-based subtractive material processing products, presented under the Laser Photonics brand, were previously available in several Latin American markets; recent technology updates, combined with the brands longstanding reputation for durability, have led to multiple new customers in Brazil and Colombia.

Fonon, the parent company of Laser Photonics, is currently collaborating with large manufacturers, integrators, and distributors in the region. New sales in the region have mainly consisted of laser-based marking and engraving machines and the high-volume Drillmaster system, a specialized high-speed laser drill bit marking system which is maintenance-free and requires no consumables.

"Were pleased to announce multiple shipments to Latin America, and additional orders booked to Brazil and Colombia which will be fulfilled during Q1 of 2016," said Jay Schlegel, Vice President of Fonon. "It is encouraging to see that ongoing economic development, steady population growth and encouraging manufacturing outlook in these countries has translated to an increasing need for advanced manufacturing solutions."

"The entire South American region has been traditionally underserved in the laser marking, engraving, and cutting market," said Schlegel. "The high costs and limited functionality of last generations laser solutions has led to a deep need for the products at which we excel. Fonons advanced products offer laser material processing at a price point unmatched in the industry. We look forward to serving our customers success and growth across Latin America."

Laser Photonics products, offered exclusively by Fonon, are available now.
