Woodridge, Illinois - We are pleased to announce that JD Norman Industries, Inc. has acquired High-Life Products, Inc. effective April 5, 2006. High-Life Products is a manufacturer of custom precision wire forms and springs primarily through the use of CNC technology. We welcome High-Life Products' customers and look forward to continuing to provide the highest quality products and exceptional service its customers have come to expect.

It is our belief that this transaction will bring many benefits to our existing customers. The addition of CNC technology will allow for the fabrication of wire forms with a greater level of complexity and increase the overall rate of automation as well as precision in our forming process. Through this acquisition, our Company's product offerings of metal stampings and wire forms will be expanded into the area of springs. We will now be offering our customers a full line of custom spring manufacturing including torsion, compression and extension springs.
