Press Release Summary: Pharmaceutical Agency SST Finds EVS Formula-based ERP Best

Press Release Body: SST's audited network of global suppliers provide gram to
commercial-scale production of APIs and FCIs, as well as custom synthesis. SST
Corporation was founded in New York City in 1948, as a brokerage house for heavy and
industrial chemical supply. It takes its name from the three founding partners -
Fred Schmitz, Arthur Schoenwaldt and Harry Turner. In 1950, the company shifted
direction and entered the burgeoning pharmaceutical market, as a supplier of active
pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). During those early days, SST sought out
relationships mainly with European-based API manufacturers, and developed its first
long-term partnership with Boehringer Mannheim, to distribute Quinine and Quinidine.

Throughout the 1950s, the firm rapidly expanded our relationships with suppliers in
Europe, adding several other major German manufacturers to our network. As the
growing pharmaceutical industry flourished, so did SST's partnerships; which soon
included top API manufacturers in Italy, Finland, and Spain. Eventually that list
lengthened to include companies in Israel, India, Japan, Korea, China and the United
States as well. By the early 1960s, SST was solidly established as a dependable and
knowledgeable agency connecting pharmaceutical, API and fine chemical sources
worldwide with manufacturers of generic and ethical pharmaceuticals and bulk
vitamins in the United States.

As the business grew, it became necessary to construct a larger facility to house
the company's expanded operations. In 1985, SST moved into a brand-new facility in
Clifton, New Jersey. In addition to housing the company headquarters, the facility
provides a huge, attached warehouse for storage and control of the chemicals
required for just-in-time delivery to customers. One of the most unique aspects of
the business is the capability to maintain substantial inventory and ship most of
the products we sell directly from our warehouse.

As the company continues to grow, they needed to find the best process manufacturing
technology solution and concluded that Escape Velocity Systems was best able to
address the unique formula-based requirements. Evan Garber, President of Escape
Velocity Systems ( recently announced that SST Corporation selected
the firm's process manufacturing software solution. Garber commented, "We are
delighted to provide the leading full-service pharmaceutical agency with the most
efficacious technology solution. SST represents world-class manufacturers of active
pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and fine chemicals and intermediates (FCIs.)

Escape Velocity Systems (EVS) was formed in 2001 to combine specific industry
knowledge related to process manufacturing, distribution, and ERP implementations
with cutting edge software development. The company focus is to create tools that
enable mid-market enterprises to achieve their goals, focusing on lean processes and
ROI. According Garber, "We realize that good ERP software is the hub of
information in any process manufacturing enterprise. Timely, reliable, and
centralized data are non-negotiable elements for businesses competing in the 21st

The term escape velocity refers to the speed that is necessary for an object to
overcome gravity and soar into space. EVS provides direct applications for
businesses looking for a catalyst, not just a software package. Process
manufacturers require the best software solution coupled with industry experience
that will accelerate the velocity with which they race towards their goals. The
gravity of status-quo opposes aggressive, cutting edge organizations as they strive
towards high quality and short lead time delivery while reducing inventories and
operating costs.
