Plasticon International, Inc. CEO Looks Ahead to Successful 2007 in Interview

LEXINGTON, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 20, 2007 -- Plasticon International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PLNI) is pleased to announce that the Company's CEO, Jim Turek, has been featured in an interview this week on The interview focused on the burgeoning demand for Plasticon's products in the residential and commercial markets both domestically and abroad.

"We're now quoting jobs that we never had the opportunity to quote because, simply, people had not heard of the products or there were not enough people who were trained in how to apply them. We're now quoting developments with 1,750 homes where they want to use our Semco flooring exclusively," Mr. Turek stated in the interview with reporter Casey Rittenhouse.

The CEO noted that while the housing market may be down in some areas, commercial construction is on the rise and Plasticon's Rebar Support division will echo that increase. He also pointed to three milestones to watch for in the coming year from Plasticon, including the company's financials.

"They are obviously improving and we're very pleased with that, but more importantly than those figures are the new distribution chains we're picking up and the direction in which the company is heading internationally. Those three components are major developments that will be taking place and have a major effect on the Company this year."
