-One of Four in the United States-
-Additional Certified Facilities are X-Pel Product Dealers-

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, March 1, 2005…XPEL Technologies Corp. (CNQ: XPEL.U) announced today that its Training Facilities have been certified by 3M for providing the highest level of Paint Protection Film installation instruction in the industry. Individuals who complete all of the designated training requirements at XPEL facilities have the opportunity to be listed on 3M’s website as certified Paint Protection Film installers. Of the three additional ‘3M-Certified’ facilities, two are XPEL-related; one is an X-Pel Distributor in Colorado, and the other is an X-Pel Design Access Program (“DAP”) Dealer in Maryland.

Timothy A. Hartt, XPEL’s Senior Vice President, stated, “It is a real testament to our training curriculum that three of the four ‘3M Certified’ facilities in the U.S. are XPEL-related. We understand the importance of proper product installations, so naturally we place as much emphasis on training as we do our product design activities. The reason for this is we want X-Pel Dealers to be the best they can be. When you couple great-fitting products with superior installations, you make customers for life, and that is what XPEL and its Dealers are all about.”

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.
