National Automation Services, Inc. Announces More Contracts Secured by Intecon Controls, Inc.

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 13, 2008) - National Automation Services, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NASV) (, a public holding company for regional automation control companies, today announced the latest series of contracts secured by Intecon Controls in Tempe, Arizona, a wholly owned subsidiary of NAS. Intecon has secured in excess of $600,000.00 in awarded contracts since January of this year.

The Company's substantial progress in developing and growing the current operations, with new and larger contracts being awarded, is evident from the current backlog of projects, which will generate revenues for the Company well into 2010. The synergies between two of the Company's subsidiaries, Intuitive Systems Solutions, Inc. and Intecon Controls, Inc., have been extremely encouraging and very productive. The sharing of information, resources, and customer contacts has fostered new business which would not have been possible as stand-alone companies.

Mr. Dayv Marlow, V.P. of Intecon Controls, stated, "We are very pleased with our progress of contributing to the success of NAS and building a nationwide provider of automation and controls services. Our recent contract awards are focused on the water and wastewater industry which has unlimited potential for Intecon. Municipal infrastructures such as these are well behind the growth curve in the region in which Intecon operates, and we have the expertise to support the rapid development strategies that lay ahead. One of our most recent contracts, which was with PERC Inc., who manufactures sequential batch reactors for wastewater applications, is a prime example."

Mr. Marlow continued: "Since we have joined NAS, many more doors have opened to us including possible work at Skyharbor Airport here in Phoenix. As NAS completes more acquisitions, we see more doors opening with each by being able to service a wider array of vertical markets and customers. We are excited to say the least!"

NAS is making a much BIGGER ONE out of SMALLER ONES

From Hand Production to Automation

Before the Industrial Revolution, virtually all goods were made by hand. With the Industrial boom of the 1900s, the automation and controls industry was born to improve the quality and reduce the costs of tedious, repetitive tasks in the industrial plants.

Immediately after World War II, computers were born, almost entirely for scientific purposes. By the early '60s, computers began to make their way rapidly into process control and production. Automated assembly lines took on more and more tasks, allowing for an increasing number of automated processes and adjustments. By eliminating tedious tasks usually performed by hand, the owners of a plant realized higher quality and more through put which improved not only quality, but competitiveness as well.

Today's Markets

Automation touches our lives without notice, from the food we eat, to the clothes we wear, to the building materials we use, i.e. food, clothing, and shelter, and almost everything else of which we consume or come in contact with uses automation.

Accordingly, the markets of National Automation Services, Inc. are vast. They include waste/water treatment, airport security systems, bottling plants, power plants, metals, mining, breweries, food processing, tire making, textiles, plastics, i.e. virtually all production activities.

Although there are a handful of very large automation and controls companies, the industry is highly fragmented with about 286 companies of modest size in the U.S., privately owned, and local in nature, and totalling approximately $32 billion in annual gross sales.

A handful of larger automation companies dominate the market as they offer national as well as worldwide support for the Corporate and Government Clients they serve. Overall the automation industry in the U.S. alone tops the $400 billion mark each year which is largely serviced by this handful of firms.

Where We Are Going

NAS intends to build a nationwide company through acquisitions and internal growth in this fragmented market. We believe that our growing company will retain healthy margins and produce attractive increases in earnings per share during the period of this Plan. Our estimate is that we will immediately produce cost savings of 12-15% on each acquisition, thereby driving consolidated EBITDA and earnings per share. Furthermore, NAS, by utilizing the expertise of the group, the sharing of national contracts and proven revenue enhancement techniques, has the goal of doubling the gross sales of each acquisition in the first 12 months of the date of each acquisition.

The Company currently focuses on:

Industrial Automation and Control. NAS has an experienced staff of electrical and control engineers, as well as project managers, with experience in industrial automation and controls. The Company's business is currently focused in Nevada, Arizona and Utah, but it intends to expand through internal growth and acquisitions throughout the U.S. during 2007 and 2008.

Automation Manufacturing. The Company is a certified Underwriters Laboratories Panel fabrication facility. This nationally recognized regulatory body provides NAS with significant marketplace credibility for custom control panel assembly and fabrication to its clients.
