CERRITOS, CA, Feb. 19 /CNW/ - Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc. is pleased
to announce that it has received several new orders in the Military, Aerospace
and Automotive Divisions. The total value of these orders is approximately
$680,000 US. Driving this growth is an anticipated 30 percent increase in the
Company's Aerospace sales over 2007 and several significant opportunities in
the Military Division. The Company is also in discussion with existing
customers on additional military programs, the details of which will be
released as the contract discussions are finalized. One of these Military
orders is of particular significance in that it places Omni-Lite at the
forefront of a new development for the US Military. "These orders further
stress the significance of the Aerospace and Military markets to Omni-Lite. In
2007, approximately 42 percent of sales were in the Military area and about
26 percent were in the Aerospace Division. The importance of both of these
areas is expected to rise in 2008," stated Allen E. Maxin, Vice-President of
The Company is also pleased to announce that revenue in Q4 of 2007
increased to $1,830,000, an increase of approximately 119% from revenue in Q4
of 2006. "The performance of the Company in 2007 met all of our financial and
production expectations with the number on components being produced
increasing from approximately 47 million in 2006 to almost 75 million in
2007," stated Timothy Wang, CFO. "In particular, the increase in revenue in
the fourth quarter was impressive in that it occurred at a time when the
economy was slowing and many firms were seeing slow or no growth."
To meet the many opportunities that the Company sees in the future, the
management presented a Vision 2015 strategy to the Board of Directors at a
board meeting in California on February 11, 2008. This plan provides for a new
60,000-70,000 square foot facility and additional support systems for
engineering design, tooling development, automated inspection and packaging.
This facility would complement the 38 cold forging systems that will be in
place by mid 2009.
An additional cold forging system ordered approximately 21 months ago is
scheduled to arrive at the end of February. The largest and most expensive
machine ordered by the Company is now expected to be delivered in May 2008.
This larger machine is to be utilized on a military research and development
