BURLINGTON, Washington -- May 6, 2004 -- Dri-Eaz Products, Inc., and U.S. Products of Coeur d' Alene, ID, announce the formation of an alliance to develop and market new equipment for the specific industries they now serve.

"This new partnership enables us to better serve cleaning and maintenance professionals, along with those in restoration. It allows us to develop innovative, top-quality equipment to better handle their specific needs," says John Ormsby, Director of Customer Relations at Dri-Eaz.

"Both companies have their own channels of distribution and markets they serve," says Doug Hauff, President of U.S. Products. "This alliance will help both companies to better serve core customers, add value, and innovation.

The alliance will help bring to market new equipment for use in janitorial, water-damage, carpet care, and restoration applications. The companies will redesign some existing product lines and market them through each other's distribution channels.

"We are very pleased to be working with Dri-Eaz," adds Hauff. "In the past 25 years, Dri-Eaz has become the standard in the industry by which all other restorative drying products are now measured."

"Our areas of expertise truly complement each other, and we look forward to working together to serve customers," Ormsby says. "Look for more news soon about our joint product offerings."
