19 January 2001

The Primix Corporation, manufacturer of the revolutionary "Primix Engineered Composite Railroad Tie", is pleased to announce today that it has hired Jack M. Payne as the company's new president. The president of Primix is responsible for such duties as domestic and international sales/marketing, business development, investor relations, and the day-to-day operations of the company. The president of Primix reports directly to the Chief Executive Officer and the Board of Directors. Marc Shea, CEO of Primix Corporation stated, "We could not have asked for a better addition to the Primix management team. Jack not only brings a great deal of experience from the railroad industry, but he has a background on the environmental side of this business that exemplifies the advantages of the Primix Tie. We expect Jack to be a tremendous advantage in capturing a good portion of the $14 billion worldwide railroad tie market as well as strengthening Primix's relationship with Mitsubishi due to his international experiences." In addition, Primix has been actively shipping sample ties to General Motors plant spur lines, Ralston Purina plant spur lines and is finishing production of sample ties that have been requested by Union Pacific.
