Airtrax received these orders ahead of the official launch of its new COBRA product line on February 12, 2008 during the "The Rental Show" (www.TheRentalShow.com) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This demonstration peaked the interest of several industry insiders, including Marty Stark, president of Lift Works," said Peter Greenwood, Airtrax Vice President of Sales. "Marty is a veteran of the industry and is recognized as an early adopter of up-and-coming technologies such as ours. We are extremely pleased to benefit from Marty's representation of Airtrax vehicles. He also intends to place some of the lifts in the Lift Works, Inc. rental fleet."
Marty Stark commented, "We are truly excited to begin marketing Airtrax's Omni-Directional work lifts. Our customers will be among the very first to benefit from the unique safety, the efficiency, and the value added associated with ownership of the COBRA and SIDEWINDER."
