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 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 output 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, and almost anything else we consume or come in contact with.

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, and 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. These companies are privately owned, local in nature, and total 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. In total the automation industry in the U.S. exceeds the $400 billion mark each year, 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 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.
