NEWARK, NY--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -  IEC Electronics Corp. (NYSE Amex: IEC) announced that it has received an order valued at more than $5.6 million from one of its medical customers. Deliveries will commence November 1, 2010 during IEC's fiscal first quarter.

W. Barry Gilbert, Chairman and CEO, stated, "This is an important order for us. The Medical sector is a strategic growth area for IEC and this order indicates that our investment in targeting medical device customers the last couple of years is beginning to pay off. 

"We regularly receive orders from our customers in all sectors in amounts between $1-$3 million dollars and believe it's important to share with you news of larger orders. Two months ago we received a $6.1 million order from a Military and Defense customer. Likewise, last week we announced a meaningful order of $5.1 million from a second Military and Defense customer, and now this significant $5.6 million order from a Medical customer. With this order activity, we continue to see notable growth in our backlog. Our platform is a simple one; we drive 'Absolutely Positively, Perfect and On Time(SM)' performance and as a result we are being continually rewarded by both our existing and new customers. Fiscal 2011 is shaping up to be another good year for IEC."
