AmeraMex International Receives Equipment Orders Totaling $280,000 and Acquires Package of Used Equipment With Projected $8 Million Retail Value

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 23, 2011) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to logistics companies (stevedoring), infrastructure construction, and commercial farming and mining companies, announced that it has received equipment orders totaling $280,000. The refurbished equipment for the orders is in inventory and will ship this quarter to locations within the U.S. and to the Port of Iquique, Chile.

"There is a considerable demand from domestic and international customers for refurbished equipment and as we have mentioned in previous news releases, refurbished equipment carries better profit margins," said AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre. "With that said, we are pleased to announce that negotiations have been completed to acquire 400 used container handlers. The handlers will be completely refurbished and readied for sale in our Chico, California facilities. The handlers will be shipped each in groups of fifty to our facility over the next 12 to 16 months. The machines are expected to generate revenue in excess of $8 million.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for AmeraMex as it will generate a continuous revenue stream and, during a difficult economy, allow us to hire additional personal," added Hamre.
