AVT Inc. (OTCPINK: AVTC) had robust stock volume Mar. 25, with 61,846 changing hands .
The Corona, Calif.-based high-tech vending machine maker with 1,000 machines already in the marketplace recently announced it plans to pursue the vending of legal marijuana.
Because AVT is already a seasoned vending machine company with a track record and a thorough understanding of all the legalities in labeling products, it believes it has a leg up on many newcomers that want to exploit the new legal marijuana vending sector.
Pursues Diversified Vending Opportunities
However, AVT also continues to pursue other innovative vending opportunities besides legal marijuana. On Mar. 24, the company announced that it had signed a manufacturing agreement with Opticwash, creators of the world's only self-service kiosk dedicated to the cleaning of eyewear and jewelry.
The Opticwash kiosk cleans and sanitizes eyeglasses, sunglasses and jewelry to perfection in a matter of moments.
The system uses Reverse Osmosis water, which is filtered to the point where it has no minerals or organics, and can attack and absorb dirt on contact. Additionally, an ultraviolet light source kills up to 99.9% of bacteria.
The Opticwash system began development in 2009 and has had great success during beta testing. The Army and Air Force Exchange Services (AAFES) participated in the beta testing with 7 kiosks in 3 different bases throughout Florida.
Opticwash kiosks have also proved successful in 5 shopping malls in Florida, the Wyndham visitor center at the Emerald Grande (2013 Hotel of the year), two marina ship stores, two Airport Fixed Based Operators (FBOs) and other locations.
On Mar. 25 AVTC's share price closed at $3.72, down 10 cents from its closing price of $3.82 the previous day.
