MITY Enterprises, Inc. Introduces Portable Dance Floor Line

OREM, UT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 25, 2006 -- MITY Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: MITY), designer, manufacturer, and marketer of institutional furniture, announced that Mity-Lite, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary, has obtained an exclusive patent license agreement from Magnattach, Inc. to manufacture, market and sell the Magnattach® portable dance floor line. Product may now be ordered for immediate delivery.

Magnattach setup or breakdown is approximately ten times faster than other portable floors. To achieve this time and labor savings, Magnattach features an ultra high strength, self-locking magnet-to-steel wedge system that instantly locks each panel securely in place. Additionally, Magnattach is lighter weight, of a higher quality, and easier to use than other floors.

"The unique design and patented magnetic wedge lock system make Magnattach the reference standard in quality and ease of use -- offering huge labor savings," stated Rodney Polen, president of Magnattach, Inc. and inventor of the Magnattach portable dance floor system. "Facility managers are stunned that a 20'x20' dance floor, for example, can be set up in approximately 8 minutes. Upon demonstration, they watch in amazement and typically comment 'I have to have it.'"

"We're very pleased with the customer response we've had so far, and are excited to bring this exceptional product to market," remarked Bradley T Nielson, president and CEO of Mity-Lite, Inc. "Our goal is to excel in providing products that fill immediate customer needs.
