June 20, 2006

Vancouver, B.C. - Press Release

I.C.T.C. Holdings Corporation is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Angelo Capi as Managing Director, Europe. Mr. Capi comes to HERO with a wealth of knowledge in the dispenser and mixer business and will be a strong asset in assisting HERO to achieve their goals in the EU and surrounding countries.
For over 35 years, HERO has been producing and marketing airless paint sprayers. HERO began to market manual colourant dispensers in 1977, and for the past 10 years, has been a leader in this category. More recently, HERO has been producing mixers and shakers and has complimented the dispensing and mixing family of products with the acquisition of Highland Laboratories paint products division.
This move to establish HERO more prominently in Europe serves as evidence that HERO fully intends on strengthening their support and commitment to the European marketplace.
HERO Europe will be based in the industrial hub outside of Milan, Italy, which will serve as an effective distribution point to reach European clients with machines. This will reduce shipping costs and improve time to market to enable clients to manage more effectively their inventory requirements in these product groups.
