(OTCBB: QWTR) ("Quest" and/or "Quest Water" and or "Company"), an innovative water technology company, and developer of the AQUAtap™ Community Drinking Water Station and WEPS™ Water Extraction and Purification System, has signed a Contract Manufacturing Agreement with Tecnologia del Pacifico S.A. de C.V. for the fabrication and assembly of the AQUAtap™ water purification system in Baja California, Mexico. The agreement will allow Quest Water to immediately begin the manufacture of AQUAtap™ systems in Mexico for Angola, the Caribbean and Central America, and other markets worldwide.

"It was essential that we secure additional manufacturing capacity to immediately support our marketing efforts in Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America, and be in a strong position to produce mass quantities of our AQUAtap™ system," said John Balanko, Quest Water Global CEO & President. "Our management team has known the principals of Tecnologia del Pacifico for several years and we have toured the Mexican facility and have seen it in operation. We have been extremely impressed with the team of professionals at Tecnologia del Pacifico and are confident in their ability to build and assemble our AQUAtap™ systems quickly and with the highest quality standards possible. Tecnologia del Pacifico will give Quest Water's purchase orders top priority and ensure that high quantities of our community drinking water stations can be deployed efficiently to our customers in a cost-effective manner."
