Plasticon International, Inc.'s Wholly Owned Subsidiary, SEMCO Manufacturing, Trains Additional Staff for Midwest Region

LEXINGTON, KY--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) - Plasticon International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PLNIQ) announced today that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, SEMCO Manufacturing, has hired and trained additional employees to work in the Midwest region of the United States. The additional staff is located in the Lexington, KY area and will be contracted out to work on jobs across the Midwest.

The additional staff has attended full courses of training on all of SEMCO's products, such as SEMCO's innovative X-Bond system. The X-Bond system is a waterproof, lightweight, cementatious product that can resurface virtually any surface and offers a durable and environmentally responsible creative design capability. This superior bonding system adheres directly to any existing surface. X-Bond can be safely applied in confined areas over existing surfaces, minimizing waste disposal. SEMCO's product line is noted for its incredible durability, which is why its products are not only extensively used indoors, but also on heavily trafficked outdoor walkways, in extreme outdoor weather conditions, in chlorinated pool water and on rugged exteriors. SEMCO Manufacturing has offices in the U.S., Japan, China, Singapore, and Australia.

"We're very pleased to be adding new employees to our wholly owned subsidiary, SEMCO Manufacturing. The crew will begin working on three new projects in Lexington, KY, which will include residential and commercial locations. We will provide additional information as construction begins on the projects in Lexington, KY," stated Jim Turek, CEO and President of Plasticon International, Inc.
