Press Release Summary: NexTechFAS has signed an exclusive sales and marketing
representation agreement with the John P. Kummer Group ("Kummer"), to actively
promote and market NexTechFAS technology and products throughout the European Union.

Press Release Body: AUSTIN, Texas - April 8, 2008 - NexTech Solutions, Inc. (Pink
Sheets: NXSL) and FAS Holdings Group, LLC, jointly doing business as "NexTechFAS",
are pleased to announce that the company has signed an exclusive sales and marketing
representation agreement with the John P. Kummer Group ("Kummer"), a specialized
equipment marketing representative in Europe for semiconductor and other industries.
Kummer, with offices in Germany, the UK, and France will actively promote and
market NexTechFAS technology and products throughout the European Union, creating a
strategic opportunity for the company within the European-dominated photovoltaic
(solar) market as well as OLED, flexible display and semiconductor applications.

With over 30 years in business, Kummer has marketed and distributed semiconductor
equipment and tools to the European Microelectronics Community for many large
industry leaders such as Orbot Instruments, Jordan Valley, Lasertec, KLA-Tencor and
many others. Through this agreement, Kummer will extend NexTechFAS's technologically
advanced extrusion coating and automated optical inspection solutions to the fast
emerging photovoltaic, flexible electronics and OLED markets in Europe.

"We believe NexTechFAS's technology could have a significant impact in reducing the
current cost of developing solar panels and potentially play a role in improving the
overall economics of producing photovoltaic energy. Given that last year the
European Union accounted for more than three-quarters of the world's total
photovoltaic market, Kummer's representation is key to our company's marketing
strategy for this industry," stated Miguel Friedrich, vice president of marketing
for NexTechFAS.

Europe is a very significant market to NexTechFAS because of its current leading
production volume in the photovoltaic market. Industry analysts expect the solar
market to grow to over $30 billion by 2012, according to BCC Research. Kummer is
expected to play a significant role in NexTechFAS's growth in this heavily
European-based market. Kummer will also be key to post-sale customer support and
servicing of NexTechFAS equipment in Europe.
