HomebuilderStocks.com Presents an Online Audio Interview With International Barrier Technology's President, Dr. Michael Huddy, Discussing Their New Facility, Improved Efficiencies and

Distribution Plans for Domestic and Global Expansion

POINT ROBERTS, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 7, 2005 -- www.HomebuilderStocks.com, a global investment research portal for the homebuilder industry, is pleased to present an audio interview with Dr. Michael Huddy, the President and Director of International Barrier Technology Inc. (OTC BB: IBTGF), a manufacturer of proprietary fire resistant building materials, in which he discusses the Company's new facility, improved distribution and plans for global expansion. As the Company nears completion of its 15,000-square-foot expansion to their facility, significant improvements in the automation of their manufacturing process are anticipated. These improvements, according to Dr. Huddy, "will lead to considerable reductions in labor costs per square foot, reduce material costs because the application will be much more uniform, considerably improving the waste factor, and capacity will go up to three times current levels."

As Dr. Huddy explains, in addition to growing their U.S. operations and building domestic opportunities, "Barrier's strategy entails the completion of the production technology within the new plant, in addition to ensuring that they have protection in place in terms of patents as well as solid technology and supply agreements, which in turn can be used as a format and base to attract interest from other companies in licensing their innovative technology."
