Increase in Purchase Orders Results in Adding a Second Shift at Manufacturing Facility

TORONTO, May 4 /CNW/ - Innovative Composites International Inc. (IC:TSX-V) ("ICI" the "Company"), announced today that it has secured two new customers for its composite mobile storage containers. A purchase order for 20 containers was placed by a Canadian storage enterprise and a US-based moving-and-storage company purchased several containers to be placed in their fleet to be tested in real life conditions.

ICI's composite containers provide an affordable, durable and lightweight alternative to traditional steel container products allowing for significantly higher payloads and/or fuel savings. Another important feature is the ability to fold the composite containers quickly and without utilization of any machinery. A 53' tractor trailer can carry up to 24 folded containers compared to only two conventional ones. This allows moving and storage companies to utilize their vehicle fleets more efficiently and address the current shortage of trailers and drivers.

The production of the composite containers for the Canadian company will begin immediately and adds to the expanding list of confirmed purchase orders that ICI now has on its books. The US-based moving-and-storage company has started testing the ICI containers this week and is expected to complete evaluation and place possible follow-up orders in the near future. This customer is one of the 20 largest transportation companies in the US and brings the total number of ICI's active container customers to four.

"We continue to generate continuous revenue in the transportation industry, specifically expanding sales in composite containers, trailers and tonneau covers. As of today, over $450,000 worth of finished goods are scheduled to be shipped out in the next 8 weeks which further speaks to the acceptance of our products in our target markets," said ICI President and CEO Terry Ball. "It is very important for ICI to continue growing transportation industry revenue while we are working on securing anticipated large scale housing contracts," he added.

The recent increase in the number of purchase orders resulted in adding a second shift at the Sault Ste. Marie manufacturing facility. High unemployment in the area and the proximity to the Lake State University provides a good pool of qualified labour to staff required positions.
