AmeraMex International Receives $4 Million Equipment Order

New Government Owned Port in Central America Orders Container Handlers

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - February 1, 2010) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to infrastructure construction, stevedoring and commercial construction, today announced that it has received a verbal commitment for refurbished container handling equipment totaling $4 million. The customer has inspected the equipment and, upon return to Central America, will process the deposit confirming the final order. The confirmation is expected to take place within seven business days.

"The current economy has created such a competitive environment that we do not want to announce the name or location of our customer," explained AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre. "The equipment is expected to be delivered within 60 days, just in time for the opening of the new port. We are pleased with the order and expect to be on target by the end of the first quarter to meet or surpass our 2008 revenue of $24 million."

Hamre continued, "While 2009 was a difficult year for many companies, including AmeraMex, we were able to develop strong relationships with synergistic companies here in the U.S., and expand our reach into several high-growth countries including Algeria, Ghana and Nigeria. We believe these relationships will generate the revenue to propel the company to the best year in its history. We expect to provide much awaited updates to our shareholders in the near future."

The equipment being shipped to Central America is part of a package of used container handling equipment AmeraMex purchased for refurbishment and resale.
