IN FORTUNE 500:
RAYMOR INDUSTRIES NAMED BY THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF NANOTECHNOLOGY (US) TO THE "NANOTECH 100" AS ONE OF THE LEADING PUBLIC COMPANIES IN THE WORLD



MONTREAL, April 18, 2006 – Raymor Industries Inc. (TSX-V: RAR) , a leading developer and producer of single-walled carbon nanotubes, nanomaterials and advanced materials, is proud to announce that Raymor Industries has been named as one of the leading public nanotech companies in the world in this year's issue of FORTUNE 500 magazine, currently on newsstands. The International Association of Nanotechnology (IANano) in California and FORTUNE Magazine have published the Nanotech 100, a list of the 100 leading publicly-traded companies from around the world. Raymor has been selected to this list, which also features large multinational corporations, such as BASF, DuPont and Intel.

“Raymor Industries Inc. was selected to the Nanotech 100, the list of 100 leading public companies that are proven to be innovative and outstanding in developing, producing and marketing advanced nanotechnology products and services around the world,” said Lloyd L. Tran, President of the International Association of Nanotechnology (IANano).  “The Nanotech 100 was selected amongst several hundred corporations that are involved in the emerging nanotechnology industry,” added Mr. Tran.

The Nanotech 100, a list of the leading public nanotech companies in the world, was prepared by the International Association of Nanotechnology (IANano ) a California-based non-profit organization with the goal of fostering scientific research and business development in the areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology for the benefits of society . The selection of each company, including Raymor Industries was based on five criteria: (1) current involvement in R&D, manufacturing and marketing of nanotechnology products and services; (2) intellectual property position in nanotechnology; (3) advanced engineering processes in nanotechnology and nanoscale manufacturing and production; (4) impact in the marketplace; (5) sales and revenue derived from nanotechnology products and services.

“The world is beginning to recognize how Raymor Industries, with our patented single-walled carbon nanotubes production process, will provide a technology platform for the use of nanotechnology in our every day lives,” said Mr. Stéphane Robert, President of Raymor Industries. “The presence of affordable, readily available single-walled carbon nanotubes in the marketplace will spark the production of commercial products in virtually all sectors, including aerospace, defense, energy, electronics, automotive, medical, sports, as well as numerous consumer goods,” added Mr. Robert.
