AmeraMex Awarded $1.7 Million Equipment Contract

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - September 19, 2007) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to stevedoring, construction, logging and mining companies, announced today that it was awarded a $1.7 million contract for break-bulk material handlers. The equipment, destined for a large U.S. port, will be delivered in 2007.

"The cargo-handling industry has experienced a high level of growth with over two billion tons of commerce moving through U.S. ports on a yearly basis," remarked AmeraMex CEO and President Lee Hamre. "Our new ergonomically designed break-bulk material handlers have a significant economic impact on the marine cargo handling industry as they reduce much of the manual work in handling onshore cargo."

Transferring cargo in an efficient and timely manner is a key factor at all cargo ports. AmeraMex material handlers (large capacity fork lifts) streamline what has been a time consuming and labor intensive effort by enabling the stevedores or longshoremen to securely move break-bulk materials (partial containers and pallets) into storage or from one mode of transport to another.
