Published On 4/22/2008


San Antonio, Texas – April 22, 2008 – XPEL Technologies Corp. (TSXV: DAP.U) and Paintshield proudly announce their partnership with the Porsche Club of Great Britain. Their first joint event will be the Porsche Club Great Britain’s Le Mans 2008. XPEL supports the passion and dedication that club enthusiasts have for their automobiles and is devoted to ensuring clubs such as Porsche Club Great Britain have the best car protection products available. XPEL will continue to support car club partnerships and hopes to be a growing resource for clubs around the world.

“I am pleased to announce that Paintshield has joined our Business Partner Program. Paintshield, through XPEL Corporation, supplies and fits paint protection film to the Porsche model range and protects more Porsches worldwide than all of its competitors. In January I visited the Grantham, UK premises to see, first hand, the film that is fitted for both Porsche Cars GB and PCGB members. The results were impressive and I’m sure members will appreciate the protection afforded by Paintshield,” said Peter Skelton Chairman of Porsche Club Great Britain.

Paintshield’s Managing Director Tom Wakeford said, “This is the first club partnership in which the XPEL Corporation has been formally involved. We see this business partnership as a springboard to increasing partnership with the greater Porsche community globally. We have a longstanding relationship with both Porsche GB and Porsche North America and do more Porsches worldwide than all of the other players combined.”

“Closer cooperation between our customer base and product development assists greatly in ensuring that our products continue to meet the exacting standards of our clients,” explained XPEL Chief Executive Officer, Steven J. McAuley. Mr. McAuley further added, “I see this as being a useful facilitator in assisting us in rolling out our race programs as well.”
