BAY SHORE, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - Air Industries Group (NYSE MKT: AIRI)

Air Industries Group (NYSE MKT: AIRI) (Air Industries or the Company) announced today that it has acquired Miller Stuart Inc of Hauppauge, Long Island, New York.

Founded in 1966 Miller Stuart is a manufacturer of aerospace components whose customers include major aircraft manufacturers and the US Military. Miller Stuart specializes in electromechanical systems, harness and cable assemblies, electronic equipment and printed circuit boards.

Miller Stuart will initially be operated as a separate subsidiary. It will not be absorbed into the Company's other operating business units and will continue its operations in Hauppauge, New York. Air Industries expects that the management and employees of Miller Stuart will remain in place.

Mr. Peter Rettaliata, Chief Executive Officer of Air Industries, commented: "The acquisition of Miller Stuart enhances Air Industries in two ways. First it brings new and complementary technical capabilities and new product lines to the Company. Air Industries has manufactured electro-mechanical throttle quadrants for helicopters for many years and this acquisition will help us strengthen this product line.

"Miller Stuart's customers are also customers of our recently acquired Decimal Industries business unit of our Welding Metallurgy subsidiary. We expect and hope that the combination of Decimal and Miller Stuart will deepen our relationship with these customers. The acquisition of Miller Stuart is a continuation of our Aerospace Consolidation Strategy aimed at grouping small Aerospace companies to provide expanded technical capability and a broader range of products to our customers in the growing Aerospace Industry."

Separately Air Industries will release its financial results for the third quarter of Fiscal 2013 on Monday, November 11, 2013 and will host a conference call on Tuesday November 12, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. Shareholders and other interested parties can participate by dialing in to the following numbers:
