AmeraMex International Receives $120,000 Order From West African Port

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to logistics (stevedoring), infrastructure construction, farming and mining companies, today announced the company has received a $120,000 purchase order for an empty container handler from a West African Port. The handler, used in the stacking and unstacking of empty shipping containers, is in inventory and will ship later this week.

"Business in the United States continues to be sluggish, but we are beginning to see business pick up as import and exports show signs of increasing in a number of African and Central and South American countries," commented AmeraMex CEO and President Lee Hamre. "We have a strong potential order backlog and expect to finalize a number of orders over the next few weeks from countries in Africa and South America. Other potential large projects in Africa continue to move through the approval cycle." 

Hamre went on to note that financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2010, will be available shortly, and a news release will be publically disseminated.
