CECO Environmental Announces Strong September Bookings
Bookings for the First Nine Business Days of October Reach $7.6 Million

CECO Environmental Corp. , a leading provider of air pollution control and industrial ventilation systems, announced today that its September bookings totaled approximately $22.5 million.

Rick Blum, President and Chief Operating Officer, stated, "This is the first time in some years that CECO has reached this level of bookings in a month without a contract in excess of $3.0 million. We have had five other months in 2007 and 2008 where new bookings have been at approximately this level but in those cases, we secured at least one contract of $4.0 million in that month. We are pleased with the vigorous level of new business opportunities we are experiencing in spite of what is becoming a difficult economy."

Phillip DeZwirek, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "As of the end of September, our bookings were approximately $5.5 million ahead of last year's pace. In addition, October has started off strong and we are pleased to report that in the first nine business days of the month, we have secured approximately $7.6 million in new business."
