AmeraMex International Ships $3 Million Order to Stevedoring Company

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - July 11, 2007) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to stevedoring, construction, logging and mining companies, announced today that it has completed the shipment of six THDC-975 Loaded Container Handlers to a large, well known stevedoring company with 20 offices nationwide. The name of the company was not disclosed for competitive reasons.

Stevedoring companies use container handlers for the loading and unloading of goods onto and off of ships. AmeraMex has supplied ergonomically designed loaded container handlers with minimum effort pilot controls and decreased noise level. The handlers provide the stevedores with heavy load handling capabilities through the use of a three-speed modulated powershift transmission and a rugged high-strength all-weld chassis and frame. The handlers have a rated capacity of 90,000 pounds in the first and second tiers and 80,000 pounds in the third and fourth tiers. Each handler arrives with full support data and a 12-month or 2,000 hours warranty. All new equipment shipped by AmeraMex after January 2007 is tier III compliant as required by the EPA.

"The sales and marketing investments made to penetrate the stevedore industry are beginning to pay off handsomely," commented AmeraMex CEO and President Lee Hamre. "During the first six months of 2007, sales into the stevedore industry generated approximately 50 percent of our revenue. We expect to announce several new contracts with stevedore companies over the next several weeks. These domestic and multi-national companies are providing stevedoring services to ports located on the East and West Coast of the United States."

According to AmeraMex's CFO Warren Murphy, the company expects to release shortly its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2006 and the six-month period ended June 30, 2007.
