Schuman Nautic Air of Stevensville, Md., reached an exclusive distributor agreement with Vortech International Ltd.

Vortech will locate and appoint dealers throughout Europe to sell and install the patent-pending Nautic Air inline air-purification system. The system uses a combination of ultraviolet light and titanium dioxide to produce hydroxyl radicals, which reduce mold, bacteria, viruses and other volatile organic compounds in the air.

"There is a heavy demand from European boat and yacht owners for a product to help eliminate air contaminants aboard their vessels," said Heath Schuman, president of Schuman Nautic Air, in a statement. "As the exclusive Florida distributor, Vortech has already sold and installed many nautic air units, and I am confident they will repeat their success overseas."
