Mitec Telecom expands its China Operations



    MONTREAL, Feb. 14 /CNW Telbec/ - Mitec Telecom Inc. (TSX: MTM) is pleased
to announce that it has expanded its manufacturing capacity in China. The new
leased facility will increase Mitec's manufacturing plant to 38,000 square
feet compared with its current 20,000 square feet facility. It is expected to
be fully operational by April 1, 2008 and is located a few kilometers from
Mitec's current location in Suzhou, China. Suzhou's jurisdictional area is
home to many high-tech development enterprises and it is one of the most
prosperous cities in China.
    "Our new building will allow Mitec to further expand its production
capacity and give us greater ability to take advantage of lower manufacturing
costs associated with operating in China," said Dan Piergentili, Mitec's Chief
Executive Officer. "Having a larger facility fits well with our strategy to
grow global revenues, improve margins and continue to develop business
opportunities in the Asia Pacific market."
    "Mitec is one of the few Canadian companies that owns its own subsidiary
in China, as many corporations are in joint venture relationships with Chinese
entities", said Bruno Dumais, Mitec's Chief Financial Officer. "Having an
expanded operation in China will further benefit Mitec by helping to offset
the effects of the appreciating Canadian dollar."
