expertise in the aluminum flatbed market and Manac’s dominant position in the trailer industry will be a

significant potential that Alutrec’s assets represent, whether it pertains to the strategic location of the
Laurier-Station 200,000 square foot site, the experienced workforce which makes up the Alutrec team,
or the innovative intellectual property that it owns. This transaction forms part of Manac’s planned
strategic growth aimed at expanding our presence in the more specialized segments of the industry, as
well as our efforts in innovation,” mentions Charles Dutil, President and CEO of Manac.

Supported by Manac’s experienced leadership team, Alutrec will continue to operate independently out
