JD American Workwear (OTC Bulletin Board: JDAW), a fully reporting company, announced today the advancement and expansion of its services. The company restructured as a newly formed acquisition and holding company and has developed four specialized divisions, each with its own infrastructure of management. A company name-change and new trading symbol is expected in the immediate future. The respective divisions of consumer products, manufacturing and fabrication, and construction management are already comprised, as the company's wholly owned subsidiaries. The company is in the final stages of negotiations to acquire a high technology company to complete its fourth division.

About The Consumer Products Division

The company has taken a new focus on the distribution of its patented line of protective workwear. The decision was made after extensive research and review of collected data on market acceptance of the company's products. The company plans to expand distribution through the Internet and by Licensing the rights to manufacture and distribute its products to major companies like Cintas and UniFirst, who are leading experts in uniform rental and sales.

The company also plans to streamline operations by distributing its products directly from the sewing contractors in order to fulfill the demand of sales created from Internet, catalog, retail stores, and specialty programs.

"This is a great opportunity to receive the benefits from research and expanded knowledge of our products," stated Mr DeBaene, president and CEO. "I am optimistic and determined for a bright future of our consumer products division. Utilizing the Internet, the company will receive a higher percentage of retail revenue bringing increased profit margins for our products versus wholesale. By licensing our patents, the company will realize significant royalties from our products without the high overhead costs associated with handling and distribution," Mr DeBaene continued. The company also plans to introduce new patented products during fiscal year 2000. Revenues from sales with increased profit margins are expected to begin as early as September 1, 2000.
