SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, December 14, 2006…XPEL Technologies Corp. (TSXV: DAP.U) announced today the implementation of several enhancements to its industry-leading installation training program. Enhancements include the opening of a new 4,600 square foot facility to accommodate not only XPEL’s production and design needs, but also a state-of-the-art installation training environment to serve the growing volume of students. Additionally, XPEL’s basic training curriculum has been expanded from three to five full days, and now includes a customized on-site dealership training component for new car store employees.

Timothy A. Hartt, XPEL’s Senior Vice President, stated, “The move to our new facility was the next logical step to stay in front of the accelerating growth in the Paint Protection Film industry. Together with our upgraded 5-day curriculum, the new facility allows us the ability to train a greater number of students simultaneously, without compromising the quality and effectiveness of the knowledge transfer. Our students leave the training class with a more solid grasp of the installation process than ever before, which naturally translates into happier customers, a greater number of referrals, and repeat business.” Mr. Hartt also further commented, “Not only are we seeing growing interest for our classroom training, but also a great deal of interest from car dealerships who want us to be at their locations training installers for their particular brands of vehicles.”
