XPEL Designated as 3M-Certified Training Facility

SAN ANTONIO--(CCNMatthews - Mar 1, 2005) -

- One of Four in the United States -

- Additional Certified Facilities are X-Pel™ Product Dealers -

XPEL Technologies Corp. (CNQ:XPEL.U) announced today that its Training
Facilities have been certified by 3M for providing the highest level of
Paint Protection Film installation instruction in the industry.
Individuals who complete all of the designated training requirements at
XPEL facilities have the opportunity to be listed on 3M's website as
'certified' Paint Protection Film installers. Of the three additional
3M-certified facilities, two are XPEL-related; one is an X-Pel™
Distributor in Colorado, and the other is an X-Pel™ Design Access
Program ("DAP") Dealer in Maryland.

Timothy A. Hartt, XPEL's Senior Vice President, stated, "It is a real
testament to our training curriculum that three of the four '3M
Certified' facilities in the U.S. are XPEL-related. We understand the
importance of proper product installations, so naturally we place as
much emphasis on training as we do our product design activities. The
reason for this is we want X-Pel™ Dealers to be the best they can be.
When you couple great-fitting products with superior installations, you
make customers for life, and that is what XPEL and its Dealers are all
about."

XPEL Technologies Corp. (www.xpel.com), publicly traded on the Canadian
Trading and Quotation System Exchange, is the worldwide leader in the
electronic delivery of top automotive aftermarket products, utilizing
the Internet as an integral component for its design, manufacturing,
distribution and customer relationship strategies. The Company's DAP
software utility offers Dealers the industry's most efficient and
productive tool set for better serving customers with "best of breed"
solutions in real-time. XPEL has clear advantages over the competition
through its proprietary corporate framework consisting of an expansive
library of installation-friendly window tint, paint and headlight
protection products, coupled with a unique web-based remote
manufacturing and distribution software, superior installation training
curriculum and facilities, and established and growing sales
distribution channels.

The CNQ has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the
adequacy and accuracy of this information.
