Halcyon Products, Inc. Shifts FireGround Compass® Manufacturing and Production Operations to Cleveland, Ohio Magnet Facility

Centralized Manufacturing and Production Allows for Higher Efficiency and Quality Control

CHAGRIN FALLS, OH--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - Halcyon Products, Inc., provider of high-quality, innovative products that serve safety and emergency responders, announces the transfer of their FireGround Compass® manufacturing and production facility to downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The opening of this new location not only supports the local Cleveland economy, but allows for improved quality control and efficiency in production of this lifesaving tool.

Halcyon's new production facility is located in the MAGNET Incubator which is affiliated with the State of Ohio's Thomas Edison Program. The large manufacturing space provided by MAGNET will permit increased production, and compresses the time required for the FireGround Compass® to reach the emergency responder market place. In addition, the new facility greatly accommodates the company's future growth plans.

The FireGround Compass®, designed by Halcyon Products, is an innovative, simple-to-use location device that assists first responders to determine their position relative to an exit from a building or an Incident Command Post. It also allows first responders to establish their bearings in smoky or dark conditions thereby leading them to safety. The Department of Homeland Security's TechSolutions Program recently announced the Halcyon FireGround Compass® as the first product designed by a first responder, to have surpassed the entire TechSolutions development path and operational testing regulations.

Mr. John Moore, President and CEO of Halcyon Products, Inc., states, "The new Cleveland manufacturing facility for the FireGround Compass® provides the company with complete control over the production process from start to finish -- thereby assuring the highest levels of quality control. The additional resources provided from the Magnet facility will also allow our manufacturing system to expand as the company continues to add new products designed for the first responder markets."

Wayne Zeman, MAGNET's Vice President of Venture Development and director of its incubator programs, states, "We're thrilled to have Halcyon as part of our incubation family. We think they've got an outstanding product and expect that our high quality services will help them be a huge success."
