AmeraMex International Acquires Sierra Industrial Equipment

AmeraMex Pursues Aggressive Acquisition Strategy

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - July 16, 2007) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to port operations, construction, logging and mining companies, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Las Vegas, NV-based Sierra Industrial Equipment. The acquisition was made with a combination of cash and AmeraMex Common Stock. Additional details pertaining to the acquisition were not disclosed.

Sierra Industrial Equipment (SIE) rents, leases, and sells a variety of equipment to companies in Las Vegas and surrounding areas. In addition to an inventory of equipment, Sierra has a complete service and parts department specializing in the repair and servicing of AC, Baker, Barrett, Cat, Cark, Crown, Hyster, Komatsu, Mitsubishi, Nissan, TCM, Taillift, Toyota, Worldlift, and Yale equipment. SIE currently services over 80 accounts representing more than 300 pieces of equipment. Sierra has focused on the equipment service arena but is looking forward to growing their sales department with the addition of the AmeraMex product lines.

"We are pleased to become part of the AmeraMex International family," commented Sierra Industrial COO Rodney Womack. "Under the AmeraMex umbrella we will be able to provide our customers with an expanded inventory and a geographical reach to meet all of their equipment needs in the Las Vegas area and beyond. We have retained all of our employees and, over the next few months, expect to relocate to larger facilities to meet increasing demand for heavy equipment and service," added Womack.

"Sierra Industrial Equipment and AmeraMex have the same philosophy, the customer comes first," said AmeraMex CEO and President Lee Hamre. "Rod, who has been named to the AmeraMex board of directors, brings over 40 years of industry experience, an excellent sales and service team, and a stellar reputation within the industry. We look forward to significant growth within Sierra Industrial over the next twelve months."

"Sierra Industrial is our first acquisition as a public company," continued Hamre. "Our business plan outlines an aggressive acquisition strategy that will expand our inventory, geographical reach, and customer base. We have identified several excellent acquisition candidates and expect to complete two additional acquisitions within the next several months."
