- Increasing our presence and reach in the U.S., Danavation secures installations for two independently-owned locations within the Ace Hardware brand umbrella

Toronto, Ontario, April 7, 2022 – Danavation Technologies Corp. (CSE:DVN, OTCQB: DVNCF) (“Danavation” or the “Company“), a Canadian-based Internet of Things (IoT) technology company and provider of micro e-paper displays, is pleased to announce further expansion into the U.S. market with the Company’s first installation of Digital Smart Labels™ in the state of South Carolina, and a second installation in California. Building on our initial installation with an Ace Hardware in Indiana announced in December of 2021, we are very pleased to extend this relationship with two new installations for independently-owned Ace Hardware stores.
Our continued success with the Ace Hardware brand is a testament to the value realized by deploying our Digital Smart Labels™ while also demonstrating Danavation’s ability to foster trusted relationships across the U.S. Predicated on success of the two installations, there is opportunity for the owners to expand to additional stores within their respective portfolios, which collectively represents a total of four potential locations. We anticipate completing the installations by fall of 2022.
Ace Hardware is a community-minded organization with over 5,000 stores around the world, independently owned and operated by local Ace retail entrepreneurs. Ace stores come in all shapes and sizes based on the needs of each individual neighborhood, from small, urban stores to large rural stores and everything in between. Danavation’s Digital Smart Labels™ and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution are ideal to help automate in-store operations and drive improved margins by enhancing staff efficiency and reducing costs associated with inaccurate shelf pricing.
Bob Heuser, owner of three Ace Hardware branded locations in South Carolina said, “Working with the Danavation team has been efficient and effective. We are extremely pleased with Danavation’s ability to design and deliver custom labels, and seamlessly integrate with our POS provider, Epicor. I’m confident this installation will be a game-changer for my customers, staff and bottom line.”
“Further expansion into a new market in South Carolina while increasing our footprint in California proves the success of our ongoing U.S. sales efforts. Our ability to attract interest from a variety of retailers and other verticals here in North America and around the world is a testament to the strength of Danavation’s underlying business model,” said John Ricci, CEO of Danavation. “Danavation is very pleased with the success of our ongoing U.S. sales efforts and proud of our team’s ability to continue building on existing relationships with retailers operating under the Ace Hardware brand.”
