Active Control bolsters service excellence to ActiveMine(TM) customers with new executive position

    TSX-V: ACT

    John Steckley to lead high quality program delivery as Vice President,
    Account Management

    TORONTO, July 10 /CNW/ - Active Control Technology Inc. (TSX-V:ACT)
announced today that it has appointed John Steckley as the company's Vice
President, Account Management as part of an initiative to further enhance
service excellence and value delivery to ActiveMine(TM) customers.
    Mr. Steckley will head a new account management structure in which
Account Managers will be assigned to customers that have purchased or
installed ActiveMine, the premier wireless communications and locating system
for mines. The Account Managers will be responsible for high quality program
delivery to ensure service excellence, maximize customer value, and drive new
revenue opportunities for Active Control.
    The structure reflects the complexity, sophistication and large scale of
most mining companies that comprise ActiveMine's customer base. These
companies typically have multiple mines, often with both above-ground and
below-ground operations, in multiple states and even multiple countries.
    Mr. Steckley is uniquely qualified to lead the new account management
team. He has an extensive background in advanced technology construction,
deployment and project management. In his previous role as Active Control's
Vice President, Sales, he also acquired world-leading expertise in the
development and deployment of wireless mesh network solutions in mines.
    "Our new structure will ensure that each ActiveMine customer has an
advocate who is fully dedicated to their satisfaction," said Steve Barrett,
President and CEO, ACT. "Under John Steckley's leadership, the Account
Managers will have the capability to deliver added value not only to our
customers, but also to Active Control."
