"This facility is part of our overall strategy for establishing focused
factories closer to our key customers where we can deliver both surface
engineering and coating services," says Joe Haggerty, CEO of Ionbond. "The new
plant in Wilsonville is a mutual benefit for our customers and for Ionbond as
it reduces logistical costs and turnaround times of the components and
increases engineering collaboration on new products. All of our operations at
our Bend, Oregon facility have been transferred to this new facility. Over
time we expect this facility to serve not only decorative applications but
medical and aerospace customers in the Pacific Northwest region as well."

Ionbond wear protection and decorative coatings are used in a variety of
markets, taking benefit of their extreme high hardness, good adhesion to many
different base materials, and environmentally friendly deposition methods.

Darrell Lewis, Business Development Manager, adds "The PVD coatings that we
supply from this new facility improve the wear resistance of sporting goods
components and we can apply them in various metallic colors and the ever
popular black."

This new facility is part of the ongoing commitment of Ionbond to the US
market and will create a number of jobs in the area. Ionbond was able to
quickly establish this facility with the assistance of the state and local
governments. We look forward to servicing our customers from our new location.
