Marking Methods Announces San Diego Office

Serving County's Military, Commercial Industries

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 13, 2006 -- Marking Methods, Inc., an industry leader in the field of permanent identification for commercial and consumer products, recently announced the opening of its North County branch office located at 1305 Simpson Way, Suite E, in Escondido. Headquartered in Alhambra, California, the new office will provide Laser marking and engraving, Dot Peen marking, and Electro-Chemical Etch marking services to San Diego's military, shipyards, and aircraft manufacturing related businesses.

Marking Methods, a closely held corporation since 1954, expanded into San Diego County from Los Angeles County in late 2004 to provide easier access to a growing southern California market. "Just about every item manufactured requires some form of identification," said Charlie Nichols, president of Marking Methods. "We're pleased to provide a service that benefits a broad range of San Diego industrial, commercial and consumer industries, from aircraft and aerospace, medical and dental manufacturers, to sporting goods." Permanent marking allows parts made from metals, plastics and other materials to be easily traced and branded, and prevents unauthorized duplication.

One of marking's most common applications is for meeting government requirements. The Department of Defense recently mandated that most items over $5,000 sold to the government must have an Item Unique Identification (IUID) code for validation. Unlike many of its competitors, Marking Methods has the capability to meet this growing demand using laser, Dot Peen, and Electro-chemical marking equipment.
