CECO Environmental Receives Record Orders in First Nine Months

CECO Environmental Corp. announced today that it has booked approximately $6.9 million in new orders in September and $68.6 million in the first nine months of 2000 with its backlog at $23.4 million as of September, 30 2000, an increase of $7.8 million over December 31, 1999.

CECO stated that the record level orders received in first nine months reflect strong and consistent order flow from its recently acquired Kirk & Blum and kbd Technic subsidiaries. Kirk & Blum's orders are at all time record levels, 18% ahead of 1999.

"The $6.9 million in new orders were received from Fortune 500 and large multinational customers, such as General Electric, General Motors, and Siemens among others," states CEO Phillip DeZwirek.

CECO Environmental stated that demand in the industrial ventilation and air pollution control market, and its new ability to design, fabricate and install those systems on a turnkey basis will generate a substantial increase in CECO's revenues and earnings. CECO is cross selling a broader spectrum of products and services that is generating additional revenue opportunities throughout its operating units. CECO is moving closer to meeting its goal of $100 million in year 2000 revenues, a 319% increase over its 1999 revenue.
