New Century Companies, Inc. Reports $3.2 Million in New Machine-Tool Orders

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2007 -- New Century Companies, Inc. (OTCBB: NCNC), a leading manufacturer and re-manufacturer of machine tools, today reported that it has received new orders totaling $3.2 million, to be recognized by the end of the second quarter.

The orders are for six computer-numerically-controlled (CNC) vertical turning centers (VTCs) and one large CNC horizontal lathe. The VTCs are being purchased by manufacturers and machine shops in Ohio, Wisconsin, Texas and Connecticut, and will be used to produce components for jet engines, oil and gas pumps and wind-energy systems. The horizontal lathe is being sold to a Southern California aerospace firm to be used in the manufacture of rocket nose cones.

David Duquette, President and CEO of New Century Companies, commented, "This new group of orders shows New Century's wide reach both geographically and across economic sectors. We're seeing continued nationwide demand for our VTCs and other products, and the list of industries we serve is correspondingly broad. The latest orders span both alternative and conventional energy production, defense and civilian aerospace. In recent months we have also sold VTCs to firms in commercial construction, mining, rail transportation and semiconductor manufacturing. This diverse mix of customers positions New Century well for the coming year and beyond in an economy that, while slowing somewhat, still contains sectors of high growth and high demand."
