Capstone Industries Begins Working With Asquith Corporation

DEERFIELD BEECH, FL--(Marketwire - August 30, 2007) - CHDT Corporation, a Florida corporation (OTCBB: CHDO), announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary Capstone Industries is working with Asquith Corporation.

Asquith Corporation, in business for over 50 years, is one of the top Manufacturer's Representative Agencies covering New England (and New York and Northern New Jersey for select accounts). Asquith covers the drug, grocery, hardware, specialty, club channels, serving some of the country's top accounts... such as BJ's, CVS, TJX companies, Bed Bath & Beyond, Linen-n-Things. Some of the Manufacturers Asquith represents are: ReSource, T-Fal/WearEver, Snapware, Ligna Furnature, Columbia Frame and Kid Station.

"Over the last 50 years, Asquith Corporation has represented many leading manufacturers in the house wares, seasonal and home improvement categories. We are very selective when taking on new companies to represent, no matter how many come our way. After seeing the current line of products, offered by Capstone, as well as the items that are coming down the road, we knew that Capstone was a manufacturer we wanted to represent. In the short time that we have been part of the Capstone Industries team, we have been impressed by the quality and innovation of the products as well as the support that we have received from everyone. Based on what we have seen thus far, the decision to partner up with this company has been a good one," said Scott Shrier, Principal of Asquith Corp.

The relationship with Asquith Corp. is part of Capstone Industries' efforts to establish distribution channels nationwide for the STP-branded products rolling out in September, as well as the company's Pathway booklights and Simply Comfort lines.

"We are excited to introduce our 3rd Sales Representative organization. Asquith will be an integral part of our sales and marketing team, for STP Tools, Simply Comfort, and Pathway booklights. We look forward to working with Scott and his staff along with all of our rep organizations nationwide," said Reid Goldstein, President of Capstone Industries.
