Bourque Industries Announces Distribution Relationship With FORTIS US

Distributor Services International Network of Law Enforcement Agencies

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - May 22, 2012) - Bourque Industries (PINKSHEETS: BORK) today announced that the Company has signed a major distribution contract with Virginia-based FORTIS US. FORTIS directly services more than 100 law enforcement agencies, and a large international market through its two value-added resellers, serving local, state, and federal law enforcement.

Bourque's Kryon Terminator Armor will become the only hard armor line distributed by FORTIS, joining product offerings ranging from military spec firearms and related accessories to soft armor vests and plate carriers. The addition of Kryron Terminator Armor will allow FORTIS to meet most any law enforcement materiel requirement.

"We are very excited about being able to offer Kryron Terminator products to our customers, both dealers and agencies," said Chris Colio, owner of FORTIS. "Terminator Armor represents long-awaited innovation and change in the armor industry and we are proud to be able to provide it to those who protect our Country and families."

The signing of FORTIS is an initial step in Bourque's strategy of allying with well-qualified distributors who already do significant business with local and/or federal law enforcement. Using distributors as the primary sales conduit for Terminator Armor will allow Bourque to focus on testing, research, and new product development.

In the coming weeks, Terminator Armor will be available through FORTIS and its affiliated dealers, both at or by calling 800.598.8360. For more information about Kryron Terminator Armor and Boruque Industries, visit
