New markets open up for Novik - Initial orders for Puerto Rico and Japan



    ST-AUGUSTIN-DE-DESMAURES, QC, April 30 /CNW Telbec/ - Novik Inc.    
(TSX-V: NVK) announced today that it has received an initial order for its
Noviclay(R) high barrel clay tile replica roofing system. The order, which was
negotiated by our new agent in the Caribbean, is estimated at nearly $220,000
and will be delivered in early summer. President Michel Gaudreau is pleased
with the recognition of this product's quality and durability, since it has
passed all of the climatic tests that are customary in this part of the globe
where hurricanes and the sun are omnipresent. This project is a first step in
a new market for the company and will certainly contribute to the pursuit of
Novik's growth objectives.
    In addition, following joint efforts with JAPAN CERAMICS, a major
Japanese distributor, the new Novislate(R) roof tile system has taken all of
the steps to meet Japanese standards for roofing products. "Japan is a country
where standards are strictly observed. We have taken an important step by
obtaining this certification. Pilot installations were tested in 2006, which
will now allow our distributor to launch the merchandising of this product
throughout this country, which is a very promising potential market for Novik
for years to come," according to Mr. Michel Gaudreau.
    International sales have grown 170% since 2005. Novik already exports
nearly 70 percent of its production output to foreign markets. Novik is
optimistic about the potential of opening up distribution of all of its
products to these two markets.
