Press Release Body: (Albion, Michigan) - January 23, 2008. The Jackson Area
Manufacturers Association (JAMA) in Jackson, Michigan recently announced that Caster
Concepts, Inc. (CCI), Albion, has been voted their Manufacturer of the Year Award.
The award is given in recognition of both success within the industry and
contributions to the success of the broader Jackson County Community. According to
Bill Rayl, Executive Director of JAMA, \"this year, there was tremendous competition
for the award. Some entrepreneurs start a business in their basement. Others see the
opportunity for growth in an existing company-to change the company, to make it
better, more successful. Such is the case with Caster Concepts, Inc.\"

He went on to say, \"Founded in 1988, Caster Concepts was something of a \"one-trick
pony\" -- CCI made large industrial casters and wheels and they did it well. But Bill
Dobbins, who left a thriving medical practice several years ago, has built a larger,
more technologically-focused company by implementing new management, manufacturing,
inspection, testing and delivery processes, and he added to the company\'s
capabilities through internal diversification and acquisition of other companies.\"
Today, the Caster Concepts family of companies includes Caster Concepts Inc.,
Reaction Industries, The Machine Center, Fabricating Concepts and Triple-E.

Under Dr. Dobbins\' leadership, the family of CCI companies continues to grow and add
capabilities that strategically help the company compete on a global basis. In fact,
according to many customers, distributors and other affiliated with CCI, the company
has an in-house R&D facility and engineering team to rival those of some premiere
research universities.

CCI President William Dobbins stated that \"this award is an important measure of our
commitment to the growth of our firm, and to our many global customers within the
motion control industry served by CCI. I am especially pleased to accept the award
in recognition of the hard work and talents of our growing base of employees. Thanks
to JAMA for recognizing the hard work this talented employee team has made to ensure
the continued growth of Caster Concepts and our position among manufacturing firms
within Jackson County Michigan.\"
