CHICO, CA — February 12, 2008 — AmeraMex International, Inc. (OTC: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to shipping, construction, logging and mining companies, today announced it has received a $1,250,000 order for forklifts from a logistics company located at the Port of Vancouver, WA.

“We are pleased to see continued growth and expansion within our logistics customer base,” commented AmeraMex CEO and President Lee Hamre. “With the seasonal demand for logging, construction and infrastructure equipment, our strategy to expand our marketing focus into the stevedoring industry has paid handsomely and allows us to better balance our revenue and cash flow throughout the year. We expect to increase sales through account penetration and offering an expanded product line for our logistics customer base.”
