SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, February 23, 2005…XPEL Technologies Corp. (CNQ: XPEL.U) announced today the continued growth of its Dealer base for offering products throughout the United States and certain international markets. Since the beginning of January of this year, the Company has received 59 new dealer applications for representing X-Pel products throughout the marketplace. A majority of these applications have been submitted from U.S.-based entities; however, several have originated from the international markets of both Canada and Europe.
W. Rege Brunner, XPEL’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The reason for the continued growth in our Dealer base is that the XPEL message is being heard, which is simply, if an individual or company is serious about offering paint and headlight protection, there is only one team to join, and that is the XPEL Team. As we have stated in the past, the XPEL name is synonymous with industry-best designs, superior installation training, and extreme customer care. When you combine these corporate traits with the ever-increasing visibility of the XPEL name, there is no other viable option than to become a member of the XPEL family of dealers.”
