ATCO Frontec Awarded First United Nations Contract

Providing Support Services to the United Nations Mission in Kosovo

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 30, 2007) - ATCO Frontec has been awarded its first-ever contract with the United Nations to provide camp support and food services to the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK).

ATCO Frontec is delivering support services at several camps in Kosovo, used by members of international military police units serving with the mission. Work began last month.

"We have demonstrated our abilities in providing service to deployed operations in challenging environments overseas," said Harry Wilmot, President, ATCO Frontec. "ATCO Frontec will continue to pursue new business in this sector and our growing customer base proves our capabilities."

ATCO Frontec has gained extensive experience and expertise in the provision of support services to military operations. In 2000, the company was the first private company to be awarded a contract from the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) to provide these services to Canada's military - a long-term peacekeeping operation in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The contract lasted three years, during which time ATCO Frontec consistently earned superior performance ratings from the Canadian Forces for the delivery of outstanding support services. Since that inaugural contract in this industry, ATCO Frontec has been chosen by various organizations to provide support to military operations, large-scale training exercises, and disaster relief projects in remote locations around the world.

ATCO Frontec currently provides advanced information systems technological support to the NATO and European Union Stabilization Force at several locations in Bosnia, site support services to the Swedish Armed Forces in Kosovo, and also delivers camp support services, equipment maintenance, and engineering support to NATO troops at the Kabul Afghanistan International Airport.

ATCO Frontec provides site support services and facilities management to the defence, transportation, telecommunications and resource sectors. ATCO Group is a worldwide organization of companies with more than 7,000 people actively engaged in Utilities, Power Generation and Global Enterprises.
