NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --AXION International
Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: AXIH), a leader in recycled plastic and plastic
composite technologies used to produce ECOTRAX® rail ties/sleepers and
STRUXURE® building products, today announced a second purchase order from an
international freight line for its ECOTRAX® 100% recycled plastic rail ties.


ECOTRAX® will be used for a specialty application for replacement of wood
timbers on bridges. The first order had been installed in specialty
application areas such as turnout switch-sets and transoms including ties
installed on open bridges. The two orders combined total approximately

"The positive and consistent reception for our ECOTRAX® rail ties has been
apparent, and this second order from a major international freight line was a
great win for the Company," stated Cory Burdick, AXION's ECOTRAX® Sales
Manager. "We have been able to increase existing orders due to our ability to
successfully and economically address the growing concern for replacing wood
ties as they reach the end of their useful life prematurely due to rot,
erosions and other factors. Our ties have proven their ability to withstand
harsh environments and in fact, have excelled in areas where the environment
tends to degrade traditional wooden ties. We are very excited that we have not
only proven superior product performance but have also made tremendous
progress in diversifying our global customer base."

ECOTRAX® composite rail ties are made from AXION's patented, 100%-recycled
plastic formulation. Because they are inert, ECOTRAX® rail ties will not rot
or absorb moisture, and they are impervious to insect infestation. Setting the
industry standard for composite rail ties, ECOTRAX® rail ties meet and exceed
all American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association
specifications and are continuously tested at third-party laboratories and in
track. ECOTRAX® rail ties feature long life cycles and excel in the harshest
conditions, making them a cost-effective choice in road crossings, switches
and turnouts, open-deck bridges, and freight line tracks.
