About Made with Xara by: Mike Fortuna 2011 Susan has been with Etex Ltd since early 1988, originally as General Manager. When her father, D.J.Bondy, then  President, became ill in 1991, she took over the leadership of the company. She brought with her experience and  knowledge in such industries as home mortgaging and financing; grocery/food chain development; plastic, metal and  wood fabricating for the auto industry as well as her experience in woolen mill production and assisting at a Chartered  Accountant-s firm during her years spent in Aberdeen and Edinburgh, Scotland. Early on at Etex, she was honored to  work with the original inventor of the Electro- Gun Treatment System, who educated her in everything from it's original  concept, experimentation, prototypes, working model and ultimately into the professional pest management industry. In  her words, "I am proud to be involved in a company that supplies a green, IPM, solution to the traditional termite  treatments that are on the market. Our ongoing research, development and refinement of the Electro-Gun keeps it on  the leading edge and at the forefront of the chemical-alternative termite treatment systems available. This was  definitely a product ahead of it's time, however, continual pressure from environmental groups, the GREEN movement,  and added restrictions and regulations limiting chemicals and their usage with no end in sight, and the Electro-Gun  Treatment System fits into a pest management firm's array of tools as a viable alternative that can be used as a stand-  alone treatment or in combination of other methods. The Electro-Gun has become a product that consumers actually  ask for by name, so our level of commitment to maintain our high standards and quality product remains constant. We  will continue to expand and grow our market so that more consumers, if their need or preference is for little to no  chemical usage, will be afforded the opportunity of a non-chemical termite treatment system. We plan to fill that need  through the professional pest management companies. We are here to stay."  Susan (Bondy) Fortuna    President & C.E.O. Mike's education in law and chemistry combined with more than 38 years of experience as a plant manager and quality  control director for several large companies in the aerospace and chemical industries, is a perfect match with the Etex  strategic plans for growth. His abilities and experience established a record of positive bottom line impact for those  companies. Mike first offered his professional expertise to Etex on a consulting basis for five years, then in early 2009,  Etex brought him on board as C.O.O. His background, education, and business unit management record makes him  ideal as part of the Etex core team. Concerning the Electro-Gun, Mike says, "The Electro-Gun is designed to be an  effective treatment in areas where access is available. It was not designed to replace all other methods of control, but  rather to work in harmony with them. It is great at reducing time on callbacks where only a spot treatment is required.  And most importantly, in today's economy, is that it allows the pest control company to offer a green alternative that can  "get them in the door." The inspection may reveal that the infestation does not warrant the Electro-Gun's use. We feel  that at least the company has gotten in and now has the opportunity to take care of the problem for the customer. In  those cases where the Electro-Gun is used, customers are happy that they and their loved ones were not exposed to  anything perceived as harmful. Since we have had considerable success using the Electro-Gun on wood-boring insects  in Portugal, Tahiti, and Costa Rica, Fortuna also plans targeted expansion into other countries in Europe and South  America. "It's one of the most effective and environmentally-friendly tools out there for rounding out a complete termite  management program," he says, "and has really been well accepted by those who use it."    Michael Fortuna Chief Operations Officer Staff
