Partnership Includes Automotive, Recreational Vehicle and Marine Markets Worldwide

(Irving, Texas–April 26, 2016)     AutoBodyGuard, Inc., a division of Dent Zone Companies, Inc., has announced a newly formed partnership with Zavada Scientific for exclusive rights to Zavada’s organic odor elimination technology for the automotive, recreational vehicle and marine, as well as powersports, markets worldwide.

“The addition of Zavada’s odor eliminator is aligned with our vision for the AutoBodyGuard portfolio,” said John Martin, President of AutoBodyGuard, Inc. “This proprietary technology, governed under US Trade Secret Laws, distinguishes us as the only provider in the vehicle protection marketplace capable of eliminating organic odors through an environmentally safe and eco-friendly solution.”

Zavada’s Noble Ion™ Technology removes odors by breaking down the chemical bonds and the compounds that cause them, eliminating organic odors at the source. Common competitor products use enzymes, which react to bacteria, or use odor neutralizers or fragrances, which mask the odor for a limited period of time.  Over time, as enzymes die out or neutralizers dissipate, the odor returns. Zavada’s technology disrupts the production of the bacteria, which is typically the source of the organic odor, and prevents it from returning.

AutoBodyGuard’s Organic Odor Eliminator with Noble Ion™ Technology has been integrated into the line’s Interior Protection program that provides coverage for the carpet, fabric, leather and vinyl surfaces of vehicles. The product is free from harsh chemicals and does not contain toxic ammonia components frequently found in anti-bacterial products. It is eco-friendly as well as safe for children and pets.

“We are pleased to partner with AutoBodyGuard to offer dealers greater profits through innovative F&I solutions,” said John Veenstra, Chief Innovation Officer for Zavada Scientific.  “We selected AutoBodyGuard because of the history, reputation and relationships that Dent Zone Companies, its parent company, has created in the automotive F&I industry over the past twenty-five years.”

“This exciting addition to the AutoBodyGuard product line addresses an everyday problem that all drivers experience,” said John Martin. “Our Organic Odor Eliminator provides a tangible, new benefit for dealers to provide to their customers that has never been offered before.”

AutoBodyGuard offers full body automotive protection products that range from interior and exterior appearance protection to tire and wheel protection, windshield and dent protection. AutoBodyGuard plans to add its Organic Odor Eliminator to future products for the recreational vehicle, marine and powersports markets.
