Blue Sky Partners - Innex Innovative Industries

INNEX INNOVATIVE INDUSTRIES – Over the last 5 years, INNEX has grown the Ceramic Technology business to solid double digits growth, quickly became ISO certified, sold off non profitable  contract machining business and shifted the focus to technology and Innovation. INNEX’s home grown technical material portfolio and advanced manufacturing will lead and transform  the Pharmaceutical, Battery and Pump  markets. Like AccuMED; Tom has positioned  INNEX to be a worldwide material leader. He fully expects INNEX to surpass the success of his first baby, AccuMED.

Although, first reluctant Tom really enjoyed  working deals with the premier Venture Capital firms Trillium Partners, Pine Street Capital, Hamilton Lane, Cephas Capital and many major banks. His financing experience and capital can fund future growth and Blue Sky Vision partners acquisitions.

Tom realized INNEX he needed a very seasoned executive vice president to run Operations, Business Development and New Technologies. After much time and searching recruited Michael Wagner a maverick who last employment position vaulted the company under Mike reign from 50 to several hundred employees resulting in the sale to a publicly traded company. He needs a guy like Mike who has no fear and is ready to tackle and change markets. Together they are unstoppable.

He is a market changing guy, his huge success of developing Breath O Preen material transformed the entire World Wide Sleep Apnea market to his material developed in Buffalo NY and provided Accumed in excess of 30 plus million dollars in revenue.

Now he has done it again. INNEX’s very exciting FDA compliant CEREEL and Advanced Ceramic portfolio to change world markets and position INNEX as a World leader in Pharmaceutical, Food industry, Battery and Pump Markets. Watch this company!
