Expo Holdings, Inc. Receives Order From Irwin Industrial Tools

NORTH WILKESBORO, NC--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - Expo Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: EXPH), through its wholly owned subsidiary D&D Displays, Inc. announces it has received commitment for over 250 shadow box displays from Tool Leader Irwin Industrial Tools.

According to J.D. Brown, Chairman and CEO of Expo Holdings, "As stated in earlier releases, we are pleased that our focus on industry leaders has yielded much success. August 20, 2007 we received an order from Irwin Industrial Tools, which is a new customer for Expo. This order exceeds $29,000. This order is not particularly large, but it gives us great insight into what to expect from this customer in the coming year. Potentially this is another customer who could reach our top 10 list in terms of sales. When retailers scramble to make sales gains in this volatile market, they could spend more on store displays and remerchandising efforts. We feel this is a particularly good time to be in the display business."

According to Irwin's website, "IRWIN Industrial Tools manufactures and distributes professional grade hand tools and power tool accessories worldwide for trade professionals who demand superior performance and durability on the job. IRWIN Industrial Tools' brand portfolio features user-preferred category leaders such as IRWIN®, Vise-Grip®, Marathon®, Quick-Grip®, Speedbor®, Strait-Line®, Unibit®, and Hanson®."
