Prestige Telecom Grows Engineering Capacity in Laval

BAIE-D'URFÉ, QC, Sept. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Prestige Telecom Inc. ("Prestige" or "the Company") (TSX-V:PR), is pleased to announce that in order to support the continuing growth of its Outside Plant Engineering operations, it has opened an office at 3452, boul. Industriel in Laval, Quebec. The 9,500 sq ft facility accommodates 75 engineers and technicians working on outside plant designs for telecommunications and cable customers in Quebec.

"This facility, which is located near the Montmorency metro station, expands our capabilities which are currently in place at our Baie d'Urfe location and allows us to attract the additional resources we require from across the greater Montreal region", said Denis Marquis P.Eng., Regional Manager - Outside Plant Engineering. "To better serve our customers and their diverse projects across all regions of Quebec, it is crucial to operate out of a centralized location like this one" he added.

"The demand for our Outside Plant Engineering services is increasing as our customers continue to look for outsourcing opportunities, in order to control their costs and allow for workload flexibility. This location in Laval, which we are leasing from Gestion Planidev Inc., is an ideal location for both employee and customer access and provides us a cost effective location to address the growth we are experiencing in our Engineering business", added Pierre Yves Methot, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Prestige Telecom Inc.
