Victor Industries Inc. Announces Establishment of Its Newest Distribution Hub Thirty-Eight Miles From Major Market Center
LOS ANGELES, July 13, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Victor Industries Inc. (OTCBB:VICI) is proud to announce the establishment of its southwestern distribution hub that will coordinate blending, bagging and shipment to two of three of its major markets: Las Vegas and Phoenix. In independent tests, Victor Industries' product Enviroturf(tm) has been shown to promote the growth and health of sod and turf while cutting back water consumption by as much as fifty percent (50%).

Discussions are ongoing with the Southern Nevada Water Authority as to Victor Industries' participation in the construction of municipal playing fields and recreational facilities in order to conserve the area's precious water resources.
