"Company") (TSX: ARF; ARF.DB) is pleased to announce the launch of a new 
business unit structure. Armtec has realigned from its geographically focused 
regional structure to a product-based business unit structure to better 
leverage its strengths and prepare for the next phase of performance 
Effective today, Armtec will operate two core business units. The Precast 
Concrete Solutions unit will focus on concrete products and services ranging 
from structural components for bridges and parking garages to wall panels, 
noise barriers, utility vaults and landscaping products. Dennis Lattimore, 
President, Precast Concrete Solutions, recently joined the Company, bringing 
over 35 years of industry knowledge and experience. The Drainage Solutions 
unit will be responsible for Armtec's extensive range of structural steel, 
corrugated steel and plastic pipe products, Platon and stormwater detention 
systems. Kevin Young, President, Drainage Solutions, joined Armtec in 2008 and 
has been instrumental in driving the Turnaround Plan in the Central and 
Prairie regions. The Company will utilize a general manager structure and will 
maintain the current Shared Service Centre that streamlines health and safety, 
human resources, finance and information technology support services. 
"Following the success of Armtec's Turnaround Plan, this realignment enables 
the Company to better develop its position as an industry leader," said Mark 
Anderson, President and Chief Executive Officer. "In changing market 
conditions, a product-focused structure will allow us to be more agile and 
responsive to the needs of our customers and employees. Our new business unit 
model is designed to improve our focus on our core businesses, increase local 
accountability for results and strengthen our ability to compete locally, 
while still offering the full range of products and services across geographic 
markets. The new structure is the next step forward for Armtec that will 
provide the foundation for our future success."
