Conforce International Announces Appointment of New Board Member

TORONTO--(Marketwire - December 10, 2010) - Conforce International, Inc. ("Conforce" or "Company") (OTCBB: CFRI) is pleased to announce the appointment of Pieter Jacob Eekel to the Board of Directors. Mr. Eekel has over 40 years experience in the shipping container industry and most recently held the position of Senior Technical Manager for Maersk Line, the largest shipping line in the world.

Mr. Eekel, who holds a Masters Degree in Nautical Engineering, began his distinguished career in 1969 as a sea-going engineer with the Dutch shipping line Maatschappij Nederland, which in 1970 became Nedlloyd Lines and ultimately P&O Nedlloyd in 1997. He was then promoted to Technical Manager where he was responsible for the strategic procurement of new build standard and reefer containers for an alliance of international shipping lines. In 2006, following the purchase of P&O Nedlloyd by the Danish shipping conglomerate Maersk Line, he was promoted to Senior Technical Manager responsible for all container equipment and new builds worldwide. While with Maersk, his responsibilities included the preparation and analysis of container production facilities, implementation of new build container specifications, structuring investment proposals in connection with new build opportunities, and research and procurement of all new container technologies, materials and equipment.

Regarding his appointment to the Conforce Board of Directors, Mr. Eekel commented that, "When I was first introduced to Conforce in 2006, I was researching container light-weighting and environmental technologies. EKO-FLORprovided an opportunity to achieve these two critical and complex objectives. As a director of Conforce, I plan on supporting the Company's strategic objective of standardizing the container industry with EKO-FLOR."

Conforce Chairman and CEO Marino Kulas added that, "Pieter is very well known and highly regarded throughout the industry by both the container manufacturers and the shipping lines. His vast technical expertise has made him the preeminent authority in all aspects of container new builds. To have him serve on the Conforce Board is truly an honor and a privilege. Pieter's addition to Conforce will undoubtedly accelerate our strategic vision pertaining to the establishment of EKO-FLOR production capacity in China."

The Company expects to announce additional Board appointments in the coming months.

About Conforce International

Management of the Company has been in the shipping container and highway trailer business for over 25 years. The Company has developed an innovative composite flooring system, EKO-FLOR, engineered to replace the outmoded hardwood flooring currently employed by the transportation industry. The Company is targeting its initial sales efforts on the container and trailer industries which have been aggressively seeking a viable replacement for apitong tropical hardwood and laminated oak flooring, respectively. EKO-FLOR is significantly lighter, stronger and more durable than wood. The product possesses superior quality and performance characteristics including complete resistance to stains, odors, absorption of oil or liquid chemicals, microbial and insect attack. EKO-FLOR will not corrode, delaminate or absorb water. The solution is cost-effective, has a reduced carbon footprint and is environmentally responsible. In 2009, Conforce and Bayer, a leading global material sciences conglomerate, became project partners for the purposes of commercializing EKO-FLOR. The product has been certified by the American Bureau of Shipping, Lloyd's Register and Bureau Veritas for use in ocean-going containers worldwide and recently passed TTMA RP-37 certification for use in North American highway trailers. The Company has commenced customer evaluations of its product with top-tier shipping lines and highway trailer manufacturers. For more information, please visit
