NanoMech's James Phillips and Ajay Malshe participated earlier this week in the inaugural Materials Genome Initiative event held in Washington, D.C. 

Based in Fayetteville, NanoMech designs and manufactures nanoparticle coatings, additives and coating application systems for the heavy manufacturing, defense, energy and automotive industries. Phillips is the firm's CEO and Malshe its chief technology officer.

The Materials Genome Initiative is part of an effort by the Obama Administration's effort to reduce the cost and time of creating new materials in such industries as energy, aerospace, transportation, body armor and smart manufacturing, and to create jobs in those industries.

"We were delighted that NanoMech and their CEO Jim Phillips and CTO Ajay Malshe could be with us for this announcement and participate in our breakout strategy meetings," said Cyrus Wadia, assistant director for clean energy and materials research and development with the U.S. Office of Science and Technology Policy.
