Qualmark Files Lawsuit Against Data Physics Corporation for Trademark Infringement

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - January 10, 2008) - Qualmark Corporation (OTCBB: QMRK), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing), HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening) and electrodynamic systems, announced today that it has filed a lawsuit in United States District Court against Data Physics Corporation for, among other things, trademark infringement and unfair competition.

Qualmark complains that Data Physics is using, without authorization, the Qualmark trademarks LING and LING ELECTRONICS in connection with the advertising and sale of Data Physic's products and services, and is thus causing a likelihood of confusion in the marketplace.

Andy Drenick, President and Chief Executive Officer of Qualmark, states, "The LING and LING ELECTRONICS brand names and trademarks are well known in the marketplace and a valuable part of our business. Although we prefer to avoid litigation, we could not stand by and allow the public to be confused by Data Physics' unauthorized use of Qualmark's trademarks nor permit Qualmark's valuable business assets to be diminished."

Qualmark seeks an injunction precluding Data Physics from continuing to use its LING and LING ELECTRONICS trademarks, as well as unspecified damages. The case is pending in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado.

Qualmark Corporation, headquartered in Denver, Colorado, is the leader in designing, marketing, and manufacturing accelerated life-testing systems (HALT and HASS) providing the world's largest corporations with solutions that improve product reliability and allow them to get to market faster. The Company has installed more than 600 of its proprietary testing systems in 30 countries. The Company operates and partners with ten testing facilities worldwide.

The Company also offers electrodynamic vibration solutions through its subsidiary, Ling Electronics.

Ling Electronics, headquartered in West Haven, Connecticut, is the leader in supplying electrodynamic systems, components, and service to the worldwide vibration test equipment market.
