AmeriChip International Commences Pilot Project for GM Powertrain and Launches New Website

PLYMOUTH, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 11, 2005 -- The Board of Directors of AmeriChip International Inc. (OTC BB: ACHI) announced that as a result of a presentation by management of the Company to senior engineers at GM Powertrain last week, the Company has been asked to immediately commence trials on the application of its Laser Assisted Chip Control technology on parts submitted by GM Powertrain, a division of General Motors.

Marc Walther, President and CEO, reports that a high-level engineering source at GM Powertrain was quoted as saying, "We are enthusiastic about the AmeriChip technology and their ability to solve our chip control problems. The GM Powertrain Group has committed to immediately sending parts to AmeriChip for evaluation."

Over the past month the Company has met with and made presentations to GM and five (5) Tier One suppliers to the automotive industry. As a result, the Company is currently conducting pilot projects for all five companies. This includes, but is not limited to, meeting with senior engineers to assess their individual needs, preparing CADCAM drawings, conducting feasibility studies and preparing quotations for both application and production of the LACC process. Parts delivered by various potential customers, including GM Powertrain, are currently on site at the AmeriChip laboratory located within its licensed facility at KSI Machine and Engineering and are being evaluated.
