Plasticon International Explores Injection Mold Industry

LEXINGTON, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Dec 07, 2006 -- Plasticon International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PLNI) announced today that representatives of the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Pro Mold, Inc., have recently visited injection mold facilities in the Peoples Republic of China. This visit is part of Pro Mold's continuing efforts to offer products that are competitively priced and produced with a shorter production cycle in an effort to provide superior service to customers.

The Company believes that sales revenue in the die and injection mold industry has been expanding at an average annual rate of some 20 percent in recent years in China. The country grossed about 7.52 billion U.S. dollars in domestic sales of die and injection molds last year, up some 25 percent from a year ago. Customs statistics also show that China exported 740 million U.S. dollars worth of die and injection mold products last year, comparing 490 million U.S. dollars in 2004.

"We believe that to maintain and increase business, we need to be able to provide injection mold solutions off-shore. China's technical ability has improved, while short production lead times, allow products to enter the marketplace in a very short time span," stated Jim Turek, CEO and President of Plasticon International, Inc.

Plasticon International, Inc. recently announced that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Pro Mold has implemented a cost reduction program set in place by the management team at Pro Mold. The cost reduction plan may result in anticipated annual savings of approximately $500,000 a year under current projections.

    Don't get me wrong, i'm all happy for our Chinese friends, but, I'm not looking forward to loosing 20% of our work per year, for number of years. It's bad enough as it is.
