CHATTANOOGA, TN, November 7, 2005 -- After an intense international search for stormwater treatment system suppliers, the government of Hong Kong announced Saturday the selection of Chattanooga-based AquaShield International to participate in a feasibility study conducted jointly by the Departments of Environmental Protection and Drainage Services.

AquaShield management recently traveled to Hong Kong to assist in the implementation of the feasibility study, the successful completion of which could lead to installation of AquaShield™ stormwater treatment systems in multiple sites throughout Hong Kong.

"We are extremely pleased to have this opportunity to expand our international operations by serving the people of Hong Kong", stated AquaShield president Kelly Williamson. "We are also looking forward to leveraging this opportunity to expand our current efforts in both mainland China and Korea, and to the economic growth that these efforts will provide for both our company and the entire Chattanooga community."

In recognizing the company's efforts, Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield stated: "I am thrilled that AquaShield has been able to expand their presence and secure a significant contract with the government of Hong Kong. This demonstrates what I heard clearly in my recent trade mission to China, Japan and Korea- there is tremendous economic development potential for Chattanooga companies throughout Asia."
