Expo in

Press Release Body: Later this month, October 29-30, 2008 at the Reliant Center at
Reliant Park - Hall A2, the AmCon Contract Manufacturing Expo will be held. There
will be many engineers/buyers that visit from mid-size companies from Houston,
Austin, San Antonio and throughout the Southwest. Engineers and buyers attending an
AmCon Contract Manufacturing Expo can find one or multiple sources to take a project
from concept or prototype to finished product quickly and at competitive prices.
OEMs can find sources for engineering, design, prototypes, forming, fabricating,
machining, finishing, assembly and electronic manufacturing services all under one
roof. Whether looking for one part or production runs, attendees find multiple
sources from which to choose. AmCon offers attendees a unique opportunity to
investigate a variety of manufacturing options, both new and traditional, and find
the best processes and materials for specific applications. Attendees view actual
samples of products that have been produced for other OEMs in their industry and can
get quotes on current projects and compare quality, pricing, and lead times from
multiple vendors all in a few hours.

Recently profiled this event. In the feature article,
manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, profiled both Kati Olson, President, of
AmCon as well as several former attendees who noted this event is where job shops
and contract manufacturers can meet face-to-face with serious OEM buyers of custom
manufacturing services from the region.

Vantage Technology is the premier manufacturer of third-party certified electrical
connectors for use in hazardous environments. Cheryl Reid is the Purchasing Manager
and said of her AmCon experience, "It is a good place to meet regional suppliers and
to get ideas on what is available. I like to order from suppliers in my state when
possible, an AmCon regional manufacturing event helps. I also am always looking for
ISO certified machine shops, and they are easy to spot at the expo."

Stephen Ehrlich is Chief Mechanical Engineer for ACR Electronics. Ehrlich said of
his AmCon Expo experience, "The best benefit from attending these types of events is
seeing the latest offerings from the various companies and seeing what they can do
for my company. I usually attend the AmCon show with others...all being Engineers or

Only AmCon shows provide a "hands on" one-on-one education. Since the exhibits are

issues. To register for the Houston, Texas event go to:
