NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., Dec. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --AXION International
Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: AXIH), a leader in recycled plastic and plastic
composite technologies used to produce ECOTRAX® rail ties and STRUXURE®
building products, today announced that a major domestic transit line located
in the South Central region, has issued a purchase order for $925,000 of
AXION's ECOTRAX® composite rail ties made with 100% recycled plastic and
plastic composites.


ECOTRAX® composite rail ties were chosen by the existing customer to be used
for an annual spot replacement of rotted wooden ties. The decision to continue
the purchase and use of ECOTRAX® was a result of proven durability, time
efficiency, and lifecycle cost savings over traditional ties, particularly in
the various climates of the South Central region. The purchase order will be
issued to support two install projects, with the second phase purchase order
to be finalized by the first week of January.

"We continue to demonstrate that ECOTRAX® delivers great value to our
customers and the rail industry," stated Cory Burdick, AXION's ECOTRAX® Sales
Manager. "Rail operators are actively seeking alternatives to address the
increasingly expensive maintenance and replacement issues associated with
wooden ties and ECOTRAX® provides them with a solution on a global scale.
Over the last two years, we have expanded our business worldwide and continue
to produce a very consistent quality product which is being recognized by both
existing and new customers."
