American Pallet Leasing Introduces Revolutionary Pallet Cleansing Product

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 10, 2005--American Pallet Leasing, Inc. (OTCBB:APLS), a vertically integrated manufacturer and logistical supplier of pallets, announced today that it has received the exclusive rights to market a new wood pallet cleansing product that will revolutionize the manufacture of wood pallets in the United States. The new product employs advanced colloidal chemistry and nanotechnology to destroy, and prevent the recurrence of wood boring pests, mold and mildew that can occur in wood pallets. The environmentally-safe product has been approved for this use by the USDA and complies with the federal regulation requiring all wood pallets to be treated, during manufacturing, for such problems. Previously, the only effective method had been heat treating, which takes 3 hours and costs more than $1.00 per pallet. APL's cleansing product requires about five minutes.

APL's Chief Executive Officer, Timothy R. Bumgarner, commented that APL will treat all the wood pallets it makes with the new product, and will sell it exclusively to other pallet makers across the industry. "Our product eliminates the manufacturing bottleneck created by time consuming heat treating. Once a dipping line is established, pallets could come off at a rate of one per second. The benefits are obvious; more pallets sold, and a much improved bottom line for any of the companies using our product. We expect this to become another good revenue producer for APL," Mr. Bumgarner said.

About American Pallet Leasing Inc.

APL is a vertically integrated manufacturer and logistical supplier of pallets. The Company is engaged in an acquisition roll-up of strategically located wood pallet manufacturers and saw (lumber) mills. Management's goal is to create a "Closed Loop Distribution System" by transforming the $1.6 billion-per-year pallet business from a commodity industry into a logistics management enterprise that will supply and manage the pallet requirements of manufacturers and distributors. APL currently owns one saw mill and intends to acquire others as an efficient means of sourcing lumber for its wood pallet manufacturing operations. APL also holds patents on proprietary galvanized steel pallets and intends to begin manufacturing them upon receipt of additional capital. So far, all of APL's revenue has come from its sawmill operations, but the Company currently is negotiating management and logistics contracts to supply and manage the customers' complete pallet needs.
