Supermetal Promotes Jean-Francois Blouin to General Manager

SAINT-ROMUALD, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 4, 2008) - Andre Bouchard, President and General Manager of Supermetal Structures Inc., is pleased to announce the return of Jean-Francois Blouin, Eng., to the St-Romuald head office and his nomination as General Manager of Supermetal Structures, effective March 10.

Despite his youth - he will be 30 this summer - Jean-Francois Blouin has been one of the main architects of Supermetal's Alberta breakthrough. With his 18-month tenure in Edmonton, the company reached unprecedented success in sales and client satisfaction in Western Canada. It was recently awarded the contract to fabricate and erect the structural steel for the United Horsemen of Alberta's Racing Entertainment Centre near Calgary, as well as four buildings at the Epcor/TransAlta-owned, Keephills 3 coal-fired generating facility.

'The arrival of Jean-Francois will greatly reinforce the executive management team at the right time, in the middle of a period of rapid growth,' Bouchard stated. 'This nomination is also fully in line with our historic tradition of passing the company reins from one generation of leaders to another.'

Knowing the Alberta market better than anyone else, Blouin is well placed to support the Western Division from a distance and help it achieve its objectives. As well, his new position will have him supervising all contracts in North America and overseeing business development in general.

'There are very few companies nowadays like Supermetal, where the owners are also the daily managers,' Bouchard points out. 'By staying true to our core values, we are ensuring a bright future for everyone in a Company dedicated to delivering high quality service and capable of establishing personalized rapport with clients.'

Supermetal Structures is a long-established Canadian-owned company with facilities in Quebec and Alberta and clients all across North America. Renowned for its premium service, Supermetal employs 400 people and specializes in the fabrication and erection of structural steel for industrial and commercial projects.
