InXpress USA Opens New Franchise in Oklahoma


Edmond, OK (PRWEB) June 07, 2013

The expansion of industry needs in Oklahoma has opened the doors to InXpress, a company that provides discount shipping prices for small to mid-sized businesses.

InXpress recently opened a new office in Edmond, Okla. which offers tailor-made courier and delivery solutions to area businesses.

Oklahoma has an economy that is growing, said Roger Lewis, owner of the new franchise. Small and medium size companies are taking advantage of the global customer to build their business. I know they need quality transportation for their commodity. Thats exciting as a new InXpress franchise owner. I can bring real bottom-line value to help these growing companies.

InXpress offers discounted shipping rates for smaller businesses in national and international markets that would otherwise only be available to corporations with large shipping needs. InXpress negotiates heavily discounted rates through the collective shipping needs of its clients. Collective shipping directly translates to lower shipping costs for customers.

InXpress helped over 100 area businesses cut shipping costs by 17 percent, or a total of $ 115,450, after opening a franchise in Washington, D.C. last year. InXpress boasts nearly perfect consistency in saving customers 10 percent or more over their existing courier rates. Entrepreneur Magazine ranked InXpress #240 in the 2013 Franchise 500 rankings, making it the only transportation reseller on the list.

The companys decision to expand to Okla. is in response to a steadily growing client base. As InXpress continues to thrive in the area, more businesses will have access to the competitive rates InXpress offers though reseller shipping. InXpress works with reputable carriers like DHL, the largest international carrier.

InXpress provides a unique service to small and mid-sized companies, said Dustin Hansen, CEO of InXpress USA. With collective buying power, an InXpress customer will instantly see savings in their shipping spending. Our local franchise owners are small or mid-sized businesses that help other small or mid-sized companies succeed.

InXpress currently has offices in Atlanta, Houston, Seattle and several other locations around the country. There are a total of 89 franchises in the United States and 76 franchises internationally.

Progress Being Made in Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits, According to D. Miller & Associates, PLLC


Houston, Texas (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

The law firm D. Miller & Associates, PLLC reports that progress is being made in the many vaginal mesh lawsuits against manufacturers of vaginal mesh implants across the United States, providing hope for those alleging personal injury caused by such devices. “A pretrial order shows agreement has been reached in regards to the application of the statute of limitations and delayed filing of transvaginal mesh lawsuit claims in the four multidistrict litigation cases pending in the Southern District of West Virginia*, notes vaginal mesh lawyer Darren Miller. “The progress being made in these cases provides hope to those who have filed or wish to file a transvaginal mesh lawsuit claim against the manufacturer of their mesh implant for failing to warn them of the potentially serious risks of the device,” he adds.

Miller says that the safety of pelvic mesh devices, which are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, has been a concern for the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) since a warning was issued by the agency in October 2008 (see: fda.gov/MedicalDevices/Safety/AlertsandNotices/PublicHealthNotifications/ucm061976.htm). He points out that, in a July 2011 safety communication, the FDA stated that serious complications for transvaginal repair are not rare. The FDA also stated in that communication that vaginal mesh might in fact put patients at a greater risk of serious complications, he adds (see: fda.gov/MedicalDevices/Safety/AlertsandNotices/ucm262435.htm). Thousands of cases alleging serious complications with this device have been, and continue to be, reported to the FDA, says Miller.

Women have filed suit against the manufacturers of these mesh implants, alleging the manufacturers were negligent in failing to warn consumers of the serious effects that may result from use of the device, the vaginal mesh attorney adds. These women contend they were were not made aware of the very serious complications which might arise from the vaginal mesh implants, or the risks they may have been exposing themselves to because of the mesh implants. For the harm and pain they possibly suffered as a result, they should be entitled to compensationand we are here to help them get that compensation.

Scorpion Design, LLC Participates in AAF Sporting Clays Tournament


Valencia, CA (PRWEB) June 04, 2013

On April 19, 2013, several members of the Scorpion Design, LLC team went to Simonton, Texas to participate in the first annual AAF Sporting Clays Tournament. Hosted by the Allied Advocates Foundation (AAF), the sporting clays tournament was held to benefit the Returning Heroes Home organization.

AAF was founded by five attorneys who sought to give back to the communitya vision that aligns with Scorpion Designs own belief in the importance of charity and the companys philanthropic efforts. Through the AAF, these five attorneys worked to raise money for local charities; they also sought to support the brave men and women who stand on the front lines, as well as the families who consistently support them.

They found such an opportunity with the Returning Heroes Home (RHH) Foundation, and gladly began to help with fundraising efforts to support such a good cause. Returning Heroes Home was founded in 2006 to help support soldiers rehabilitating at Fort Sam Houston. It is RHHs vision to create a home away from home for these soldiers, and give them a place of healing while they recover from injuries sustained at war.

In April of 2013, AAD held their first annual Clays on the Brazos, a charitable sporting clays tournament for the benefit of RHH. After hearing about the event, Scorpion Design gladly joined in the effortssigning up as both a Scoring and Gun Sponsor for the event. Not only was the web design and Internet marketing company a primary sponsor, they also participated in the shooting itself by sending a team to Texas for the event.

Personally, I was proud to be able to participate, said Scorpions Chief Legal Officer Michael Sauer. While I support all charitable causes, none are as important to me as giving back to veterans who fought for this countryespecially those who were injured and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. It was nice to be able to participate in this so they could get the help they need and know that we support and stand behind them.

With the support of Scorpion and the many other generous individuals and companies, the sporting clay tournament raised over $ 50,000 for the benefit of the RHH Foundation. Scorpion is proud to have been able to help participate and help support the RHH Foundation, and they look forward to sponsoring upcoming events for years to come. Through the efforts of Scorpions charitable branch Scorpion Cares, they hope to continue giving back to the local and national community to help support good causes such as this one.

We were honored to be asked to participate and sponsor the AAF Sporting Clays Tournament this year, said Scorpion VP of Sales Brandon Wheeler. We had so much fun meeting all fellow participants and sponsors who donated their time and resources to a good cause. We look forward to our continued relationship with the Allied Advocated Foundation and the Returning Heroes Home Organization long into the future.
