Metalman Engineering has 20 years of experience in Precast manufacturing, property development, waste development and engineering projects. Metalman has established a network of experienced material handling dealerships throughout Ireland. Carryduff Forklifts, an established forklift dealership with over 22 years of experience, will be the Northern Ireland regional distributor for Airtrax.

Lift Truck Sales, based in Cork will cover four surrounding counties. Suirway Forklifts, based in Tipperary and with over 12 years of experience, will operate in four counties surrounding Tipperary.

Niall Griffin, director and principal of Metalman Engineering, stated, "We have just built a new production facility, showroom and offices based at the airport in Waterford, Ireland. This will be the showcase for Airtrax products including the SIDEWINDER and KING COBRA. We have a serious interest in the Airtrax products and anticipate strong nationwide demand and feel we will represent their products admirably."

Robert Watson, chief executive officer of Airtrax, stated, "Airtrax is fortunate to establish a relationship with a talented group of people that share our enthusiasm and commitment for Omni-Directional Technology. I am excited to work with Niall and his brother Padriag, and leverage their understanding of the industry and the strong fundamental base they have established in Ireland. Their new state-of-the-art facility is the ideal showcase for Airtrax products and the cornerstone of this new industrial complex that is owned and being developed by a division of Metalman Engineering. It was rewarding to see the Airtrax logo proudly displayed in this new facility. This is the start of a partnership that will explore all opportunities present in the Irish market and we feel that Ireland is the perfect starting point for future development."

Mr. Watson continued, "We remain committed to pursuing strategic partnerships and joint ventures that will enable Airtrax to better capitalize on the Company's technologies, lower cost of manufacturing, improving distribution channels and enhancing revenue growth. We anticipate receiving CE certification this month and plan to ship the first four SIDEWINDERS to Ireland in the first part of July."
