OAKVILLE, ON--(Marketwire - May 1, 2012) - Blackbird International Corporation (PINKSHEETS: BBRD) is most pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Insight Group Technologies Inc, has been chosen by Cooper Industries, one of North America's largest Industrial and Commercial Supplies conglomerates, and also of the oldest companies to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange, as their provider of warehouse optimization solutions.

Cooper have selected the DC Expert suite to benchmark, optimize and reconfigure the warehouse inventory slotting throughout their global warehousing and distribution network. The project commenced late last year with a pilot at the North Carolina facility and is now being rolled out over a two year plan to each of the 30+ distribution centers throughout the continental United States.

Brian Lui, Insight's DC Expert Product Manager, acknowledges "this is another notch under DC Expert's belt, to have a company of Cooper's size and scope utilize our solution suite to optimize their operations." The hope is that adoption of Insight's flagship software application can be rolled out to a further 100+ Cooper locations worldwide within the next 12 months.

In addition to the software sale and related support contract, Insight has proposed a professional services agreement to complete a comprehensive review of facility operations and distribution centers utilizing their expertise of our Supply Chain and Logistics in conjunction with the DC Expert software suite.

The proposal will be on a continuing basis and another example of the template that can be applied for many of the major operations that rely on BBRD/Insight's technology products and services within this market space.

''We should receive Cooper's response to our joint proposition imminently and we shall immediately advise our shareholders," states John Pedder, president.
