Conforce International, Inc. (CFRI) Awarded Costa Container Lines Business

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 26, 2005 -- Conforce International, Inc. (OTC: CFRI) ("Conforce"), developers of the revolutionary EKO-FLOR, announced today that Costa Container Lines SpA of Italy ("Costa") has agreed to use the Conforce container terminal in Ontario for a significant portion of its business.

The significance of the Costa announcement is the immediate increase in volume for the Conforce Terminal. Currently, the Terminal handles less than 2% of Costa business; however, once the volume transfer is complete, the Terminal would be one of the top two facilities in Ontario handling Costa containers.

Costa Container Lines ("Costa") is a shipping company, headquartered in Genoa, Italy, that owns and operates 31 shipping vessels transporting over 300,000 containers annually. With 15 offices worldwide, Costa provides service to the Americas, The Mediterranean and the African continent. Costa prides itself on its many years of service excellence in transporting every type of container goods possible from coffee to cars, fruit to meat, and from machinery to plant engineering parts.

During a tour of the Conforce Terminal in September of this year, Senior Costa official, Mr. Manlio Ginocchio of the Costa head office in Genoa, Italy, commented that he was impressed with the facility and its commitment to service. When shown the new EKO-FLOR proto-type container, Mr. Ginocchio added that when field strength and reliability tests are completed, he looks forward to purchasing new containers equipped with EKO-FLOR. In addition to new product, Mr. Ginocchio was quoted as saying he "would also like to see a portion of the current Costa fleet retrofitted with the EKO-FLOR."

Although Conforce projections currently take into account only new product production, Mr. Marino Kulas, President and CEO of Conforce, said that the statement made by Mr. Ginocchio regarding the retrofitting of containers "has created a new opportunity for a revenue channel that we are currently reviewing very carefully."

Mr. Ginocchio went on to say that the EKO-FLOR composite would help reduce manufacturing costs as the rising cost of "wood is one of the main reasons for [container] purchase price increases in the last period." In-line with cost cutting, the Costa official pointed out that savings to the shipping lines will also be realized through reduced repair and cleaning costs, and that the "long life units will always be available for all purposes."

Conforce intends to launch EKO-FLOR within 6 months, when all internal and external testing on the product has been completed.
