Profire Energy, Inc. Announces New Office in Texas

LINDON, UT and EDMONTON, AB--(Marketwire - Jan 30, 2012) - Profire Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: PFIE) announced the opening of an office in Houston, Texas. The office will facilitate sales, provide in-field technical support for existing and new clients and house inventory. Profire Energy currently services a number of integrated and exploration oil and gas companies in Texas.

Cameron Tidball, Profire Energy's Regional Sales Manager, commented, "Opening an office in Houston is a logical step in our growth and development plan, as Houston is a major hub for head offices of companies engaged in the oil and gas industry, including global companies such as ConocoPhillips and EOG Resources. We believe our presence in Houston will allow us to better capitalize on the region's growth potential for burner management systems (BMS) and other related products. Further, a Houston office will allow us to provide local attention and product support to existing and potential customers in this energy-rich state. We are confident the Profire 2100, our latest BMS controller, will thrive in Texas and throughout the United States."
