In response to Rhode Island nightclub fire, American Mirco Industries, Inc. now globally distributes its fireproof soundproofing foam.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA April 1, 2004 – As litigation continues from the Rhode Island nightclub fire killing 100 people, American Micro Industries, Inc. announces global distribution of its 100% fireproof melamine soundproofing foam.

During a February 20, 2003 performance by the band Great White at The Station in West Warwick, Rhode Island, pyrotechnics were used, which resulted in a tragic fire claiming the lives of many patrons, as well as a member of the band.

To date, at least $1.7 million dollars in fines, as well as 200 charges of involuntary manslaughter have been levied against the club owners, as well as the company representing the band. Another direct result of the fire was fresh looks at fire codes.
