Air Industries Group (NYSE MKT: AIRI) ("Air Industries" or "the Company") announced today that its Chairman and CEO will ring the Opening Bell on the New York Stock Exchange on Friday, December 20, 2013.

Mr. Michael Taglich, Chairman of the Board of Air Industries, commented: "Ringing the opening bell is symbolic of the transformation of Air Industries Group from a small non-reporting Company into larger, more successful, fully reporting and listed Enterprise. It is fitting that we are doing this at the end of 2013 -- during which we filed our first 10-K with the SEC, completed two acquisitions, doubled our quarterly dividend payments to shareholders and moved our listing from the Bulletin Board to the prestigious NYSE MKT. I am looking forward to the continued development of Air Industries."

Mr. Peter Rettaliata, Chief Executive Officer of Air Industries, commented: "On June 12, 2013 we were successful in listing on the NYSE MKT. We are very proud that the New York Stock Exchange has honored Air Industries Group by selecting us to ring the bell opening trading."
