Aerial Specialists Inc-USA Acquires Parts Inventory of Wellington Equipment Corporation

Racine, WI: Aerial Specialists Inc-USA based in Racine, WI., announced that it has acquired the support parts inventory formerly owned by the Wellington Equipment Corp. of Milwaukee, WI. This acquired parts inventory supported Wellington's National Rental Fleet of equipment across the US. Wellington was a Nationally known supplier of aerial work platforms and construction equipment until it ceased operations in late July of 2002. This acquired service parts inventory supports such manufactured lines as: ECONOMY, GENIE, GROVE - MANLIFT, JLG, MARKLIFT, SIMON, SKYJACK, SKY-TRAK, SKYWITCH, SNORKEL, SQUARE - SHOOTER and TEREX.

Wellington's support parts inventory will supplement ASI's previously acquired $ .5 Million Simon - Skywitch acquisition. This previously acquired inventory supported a wide range of aerial work platforms manufactured by Simon and Skywitch including its scissors line to its Milwaukee WI, UK and IRE produced boom lift lines.

According to Company President Craig Ihde, "Our goal is to maintain steady, debt controlled growth through expansion of our aerial - access equipment support lines. Acquisitions like these fit well and complement the synergy of our previous purchases such as our Fabtek - Hyster purchase along with our "Racine Joystick Controller" line. Aerial Specialists continues to expand. We have shown our commitment to the industry by supporting over 75 manufactured lines of aerial/access equipment. Aerial Specialists Inc-USA is the "Largest Listing" aerial lift parts Company in the US and has compiled the "Largest Listing Cross Section Data-Base" for support of the aerial work platform industry."
