Press release from the issuing company

Hod-Hasharon, Israel, March 8, 2007 - Advanced Vision Technology (AVT), a leader in automatic inspection solutions for packaging, label and folding-carton printing applications, received a multi-unit order of seven automatic inspection systems from packaging conglomerate Polystar Group Inc., headquartered in Montréal, Canada. These systems are to join the previous eight AVT automatic inspection systems already in use by Polystar. The Polystar Group manages six packaging companies and nine printing/converting facilities, serving high-profile customers such as JCPenney, Scott Paper, McCain, Springs, Cascades and others. “We have a long term partnership with AVT that goes back to 2001,” said Hershey Friedman, Polystar Group founder and President. “Initially we evaluated AVT’s PrintVision/Jupiter inspection system on-site, and were impressed with the defect detection abilities and the add-on modules, such as the in-line barcode variation solution. We've been reordering systems from AVT ever since. Over the years, we’ve been experiencing major waste reduction and quality enhancement as a result of using AVT’s systems. We find that AVT's commitment to on-going improvement helps us to maintain our investment and enables us to improve our competitive edge in the market.” “We're particularly proud of this long-term relationship,” added Lance Shumaker, President of AVT Inc. “Polystar is known for its very strict quality policy and its commitment to the pursuit of excellence in all of its activities. Their choice of AVT is only natural, and goes along with their quality policy statement, as Mr. Friedman stated: 'to review our quality objectives in order to constantly improve the efficiency of our methods, our processes and our quality system to fulfill our desire to surpass ourselves'.”
