MagneGas Appoints Internal Manufacturer's Rep to Further Promote Fuel Sales

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - August 25, 2009) - MagneGas Corporation ("MagneGas" or the "Company") (OTCBB: MNGA), a producer of a metal working fuel and natural gas alternative made from liquid waste, announced today that it now has the infrastructure in place to support existing and future partner sales efforts in Florida with the appointment of its first internal manufacturer's rep.

On June 16th, MagneGas announced that it had entered into a fuel distribution agreement with Florida-based Crumpton Welding Supply ("Crumpton"). On that date MagneGas President Richard Connelly stated, "MagneGas will partner with Crumpton's inside sales team to personally demonstrate the value of our product to each customer." The appointment of Michael Cokas as the Company's first manufacturer's rep is a move consistent with that plan, and one that demonstrates the Company's commitment to quickly addressing the $680 MM metal working market(1).

Mr. Cokas will work as an independent contractor and his primary purpose will be to drive sales through joint sales calls with the Crumpton inside and outside sales teams. In addition, he will support sales efforts throughout the state of Florida, leading sales calls, product consultations and new user training to promote MagneGas™ outside the Tampa area.

"We are excited to add Michael Cokas to the MagneGas team, and we feel that this is yet another demonstration of our ability to execute on our strategic to-market plan," stated MagneGas President Richard Connelly. "Mike is a seasoned industry professional, with 12 years of welding experience, a business degree and strong field sales track record. With his addition we can make our partner suppliers all the more effective, and continue to build MagneGas™ brand recognition in the Florida metal working market. Moreover, the experience we gain in this local effort will serve as the blueprint for our subsequent regional and national rollout."
