Lee Technologies Achieves Record Growth With On-Site Staffing Services for Data Center Facilities

FAIRFAX, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 31, 2006 -- Lee Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of solutions which enable commercial enterprises and government agencies to avoid disaster and mitigate risk to their physical infrastructures, announced a 30% growth in sales as the result of its On-Site Staffing services during the past six months. This increase can be attributed to the ability of Lee Technologies' team of experts to understand and implement best practices for risk mitigation in data center infrastructures.

Lee Technologies works in the world's most advanced and mission-critical data centers, providing customers with unsurpassed knowledge of crucial system operating and maintenance procedures. The company's On-Site Staffing services provide the depth and bench strength organizations like the Department of Defense demand for protecting their mission-critical facilities.

"Lee Technologies created standard operation procedures, daily walkthrough inspection sheets, safety inspection criteria and various other processes to enhance the overall operation of our facility," said Gary D. Perkins, manager/facility engineer for Lockheed Martin Information & Technology Services Enterprise Solutions.

Another Lee Technologies long-time customer, Freddie Mac, needed to ensure that qualified personnel were available 24x7 to keep their operations up and running without a hitch. "Lee Technologies ramped-up our data center staffing to provide around-the-clock coverage, and was flexible enough to take on all jobs associated with mission-critical support," said Tim Prime, facilities director for Freddie Mac.

Lee Technologies has commissioned over five million square feet of mission-critical space and currently maintains, monitors and provides staffing for critical equipment such as uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs), generators, switch gear, fire suppression and HVAC equipment in over 3 million square feet throughout the U.S.

"Leading financial services, technology and defense customers place their trust in Lee Technologies to protect their most critical IT operations and help avoid disasters," stated George C. Newstrom, President and COO of Lee Technologies. "This is and has been our mission for more than 20 years. Our recent success is a testament to our expertise in meeting the rigorous demands of enterprises by providing the flexibility and skilled personnel needed for critical operations."

In a November 2005 report, IDC forecasts that outsourced IT services will grow by 33% in five years, from $84.6 billion in 2004 to $112.5 billion in 2009. "As one of the few companies who can offer full lifecycle infrastructure solutions for data centers including site assessments, maintenance, monitoring, integration and equipment installation, we look forward to our continued growth in this market," added Newstrom.

"Today's infrastructure is becoming much more complex and companies are finding that outsourcing to experts who can take on the burden of watching their critical systems is saving them time and money," stated Mike Hagan, Senior Vice President of Lee Technologies. "New technologies such as blade servers and Voice over IP (VoIP) are creating more demands on the infrastructure. Power and cooling have become prime concerns as data centers are running hotter and are much more condensed than ever before. Having electrical and mechanical staff on-site 24/7 that are experts in critical system infrastructure is a big relief for organizations who don't have the bandwidth to get beyond the reactive mode of moving from one alarm to the next. By outsourcing the care of their infrastructure to qualified experts, they can better allocate their staff for proactive tasks and mitigate the risks of costly downtime."
