Company's Third Order from Russia, The Second Largest Rail Network in the World

NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J. - AXION International Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AXIH), a leader in recycled plastic and plastic composite technologies used to produce ECOTRAX® rail ties/sleepers and STRUXURE® building products, and a vertically integrated re-processor and supplier of recycled plastic, today announced that it has received an additional purchase order for ECOTRAX® rail ties to be shipped to a transit system in Moscow, the second order from this customer.

This purchase order which consists of 1,000 rail ties, is the third purchase order from Russia and was sold to AXION's in-country distributor and business partner, TVEMA, an international group of companies based in Moscow whose subdivisions are involved in design, manufacture, and project development of rail diagnostic equipment. Over the past two years, AXION has been working diligently with TVEMA to introduce composite rail ties in Russia.

"We are extremely pleased with this replenishment purchase order as it indicates the favorable reception we are receiving in Russia, the second largest rail network in the world," said Steve Silverman, President and CEO of AXION. "TVEMA has a great reputation in Russia as a very technology driven company and they have done a fantastic job introducing our rail products to various prospects in the country. The sales pipeline is building rapidly and we anticipate more progress being made throughout Russia in the near term."

Russia's railway system is the country's key mode of transportation, with an operational length of over 85,000,000 kilometers, making it the second largest rail network in the world. According to Railway Technology, a current rail modernization plan in Russia calls for the construction of up to 20,000 kilometers of new routes, the upgrade of 13,800 kilometers of freight lines for heavy axle loads, among other improvements, at an estimated cost of $353 billion by 2030. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has invested more than $1.6 billion in 13 Russian rail projects since 2001.
