AmeraMex Receives $250,000 Order From Franklin Construction

New Front End Loaders Meet EPA Tier 3 Emissions Requirements

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - September 24, 2007) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to construction, stevedoring, logging and mining companies, announced today that it received an order valued at approximately $250,000 from Franklin Construction, a Chico, CA-based construction firm. Franklin, with customers in California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Idaho and Arizona, specializes in heavy highway construction, excavation and grading, road construction and reconstruction, chipseals and asphalt maintenance.

"Our decision to purchase from AmeraMex was based on their professionalism, service response and product reputation," commented Franklin Construction President Rod Winkle. "We have received fast, dependable service from our local AmeraMex office, and they carry a full inventory of parts and have a top-notch maintenance operation, which reduces equipment downtime. Machines manufactured by Terex have proven to be strong, dependable, and well designed for our construction projects. And," added Winkle, "we were able to purchase the new Terex front-end loader at a very competitive price, when compared to that of other manufacturers. We look forward to a long working relationship with AmeraMex International."

"AmeraMex is focused on assisting its customers to meet the EPA Tier 3 emissions regulations -- which are now being phased in for off-road equipment, and to provide the safest equipment available," said AmeraMex CEO and President Lee Hamre.

The Terex Model 500 Front End Loader is designed to increase productivity, as it runs faster and is built to lift and dump heavier loads. Heavy equipment operators will appreciate the ergonomically designed cab, which is equipped with a new cushioned adjustable seat, a telescoping steering wheel, a heat and air-conditioning system, and floor-to-roof windows for increased visibility and safety.
