AmeraMex International Ships $400,000 Order to the Port of San Francisco

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - January 28, 2008) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to shipping, construction, logging and mining companies, today announced it has shipped a $400,000 order containing break-bulk material handlers to the Port of San Francisco.

"We were pleased to complete a shipment of our new ergonomically designed break-bulk material handlers to a logistics support company located at the Port of San Francisco," commented AmeraMex President and CEO Lee Hamre. "Our EPA compliant break-bulk products reduce the manual labor of moving partial containers and pallets into storage or from one mode of transportation to another."

Logistics support companies represent a large market for AmeraMex, as imports are continuing to increase at a fast pace. Transferring cargo in an efficient and timely manner is a necessity at all cargo ports as time is money. The material handlers (large capacity fork lifts), manufactured by Taylor Machine Works and distributed by AmeraMex, streamline what has been a time consuming and labor intensive effort by enabling the stevedores or dock workers to move break-bulk materials safely and quickly.
