SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, March 10, 2005…XPEL Technologies Corp. (CNQ: XPEL.U) announced today that Shadow Tinting Ltd. ( of Calgary, Canada, has exceeded 11,400 product cuts utilizing XPEL’s proprietary Design Access Program (“DAP”). XPEL’s DAP software utility allows Dealers to produce vehicle protection products in real-time, at their own shops or locations, utilizing both the Internet and a common piece of cutting equipment known as a plotter.

Nuno Ferreira, owner of Shadow Tinting Ltd., stated, “Make no mistake about it, the XPEL designs are a significant component to my overall success. I don’t have to spend time trying to create my own patterns or products, as XPEL has done that for me. Having XPEL there to do the heavy lifting in terms of design work has made me extremely efficient. Having perfect, computer-generated kits every time, allows me to focus on selling, installing and servicing my accounts. After all, I make my money on the installation and service side of this business, and not on the design side. Hands down, XPEL products are the best in the industry, and their designs are a great asset for my company.”

W. Rege Brunner, XPEL’s Chairman and CEO, stated, “Nuno Ferreira of Shadow Tinting is a great example of the opportunity that awaits all of our product dealers who diligently exercise best installation practices coupled with a superior customer service component. Mr. Ferreira’s product installations and customer service activities are often reported to us as being ‘top-flight,’ and his product sales prove that out.”

In addition to being a leading XPEL Dealer, Shadow Tinting Ltd. provides product installation training to other interested dealers and installers, and was recently designated as 3M Canada’s Training Facility of choice.

XPEL Technologies Corp. (, publicly traded on the Canadian Trading and Quotation System Exchange, is the worldwide leader in the electronic delivery of top automotive aftermarket products, utilizing the Internet as an integral component for its design, manufacturing, distribution and customer relationship strategies. The Company’s DAP software utility offers Dealers the industry’s most efficient and productive tool set for better serving customers with “best of breed” solutions in real-time. XPEL has clear advantages over the competition through its proprietary corporate framework consisting of an expansive library of installation-friendly window tint, paint and headlight protection products, coupled with a unique web-based remote manufacturing and distribution software, superior installation training curriculum and facilities, and established and growing sales distribution channels.
