Resin Systems Provides Business Update

    CALGARY, Aug. 1 /CNW/ - Resin Systems Inc. ("RS") (RS - TSX / RSSYF -
OTCBB), a technology innovator that develops advanced composite material
products for infrastructure markets, announced today that it applied to the
Ontario Superior Court of Justice and was granted an order appointing BDO
Dunwoody LLP as interim receiver of its RStandard(TM) utility pole contract
manufacturer, Global Composite Manufacturing Inc. ("GCM").
    RS applied for the appointment of an interim receiver pursuant to section
47.1 of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act as a result of GCM's default under
the amended and restated manufacturing and licensing agreement ("MLA"). The
Company made the application to ensure the continued production of its
RStandard utility poles.
    RS anticipates that the assumption of operations by the interim receiver
will not cause a material disruption to the production and delivery of
RStandard utility poles to its customers. RS staff is fully familiar with the
operations of the plant and will assist the interim receiver as required in
order to continue the production of the utility poles in accordance with the
    "We want to assure our customers and shareholders that our utility poles
are going to continue to be manufactured in volumes to meet market demand,"
said Paul Giannelia, president and chief executive officer of RS. "While we
are disappointed that GCM failed to obtain their planned funding, our
manufacturing expertise is more advanced than ever and we are focused on
moving forward to grow our business."
