Majestic Launches 'SAFE-T-GARD' Marketing Campaign in Nation's Capitol

Apr 26, 2001, 01:00 ET from The Majestic Companies, Ltd.

    SAN DIEGO, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Majestic Transportation Products,
 Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of The Majestic Companies, Ltd.
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   MJXC) today announced that the Company will be launching
 a "national marketing campaign" and "public awareness program" for its
 innovative and patented SAFE-T-GARD, a product that acts as a "people
 deflector" which is designed to prevent bystanders in a bus loading and
 unloading zone from being run over by the rear wheels of a bus.
     The Campaign is being officially kicked off this Friday, April 27th at a
 dedication ceremony and press conference being held in Washington D.C. to
 honor the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority for their recent
 commitment to outfit their entire fleet of over 1600 city & commuter transit
 buses with the S-1 GARD, a version of the product designed specifically for
 the metro bus market.  Majestic Transportation Products, Ltd. recently
 completed the negotiation of an exclusive licensing agreement with Public
 Safety Transportation, Inc., the developer and patent holder of the S-1 GARD,
 to market the SAFE-T-GARD, a sister version of the product that has been
 jointly developed by both Companies, and targeted specifically for the school
 bus marketplace.  In addition to the attendees expected to be on hand for the
 S-1 GARD activities, over 200 school transportation officials from within the
 DC, Virginia and Maryland area have received personal invitations to attend
 the commencement ceremonies.  Representatives of Majestic Transportation will
 be on hand to unveil and discuss the new SAFE-T-GARD, which is now available
 for immediate school bus installation.  The S-1 GARD is well into the early
 adoption phase of its product cycle, and has either been installed, or is
 scheduled to be installed on metro buses in the Chicago, Los Angeles, St.
 Louis, San Diego and Washington, DC greater metropolitan areas.
     Dr. Steven Rosenthal, President of The Majestic Companies, Ltd. stated,
 "The S-1 GARD for metro and commercial buses is experiencing a tremendous
 introduction into the marketplace, and several indications point to it being
 standard equipment on all city and metro buses within a few years.  From our
 preliminary marketing efforts and focus group feedback, we have already seen a
 strong interest in the SAFE-T-GARD from the school transportation market, and
 feel that the market acceptance will closely mirror that of the S-1 GARD.  The
 product has been engineered to be extremely effective in preventing serious
 injuries and fatalities from occurring when children and or adults find
 themselves in the path of a buses rear wheels.  This situation has been of
 great concern to school transportation officials for some time due to the
 catastrophic results of this type of incident, which almost always results in
 serious injury and oftentimes death.  With the introduction of the
 SAFE-T-GARD, we look to greatly reduce and or eliminate these tragic
 occurrences within the school bus industry."
     Ms. Charla Little, National Marketing Director for Majestic Transportation
 Products stated, "We are extremely excited about the launch of the
 SAFE-T-GARD's marketing campaign.  The majority of the transportation
 officials we have demonstrated the product to have given us strong indications
 of interest in outfitting their fleets with the SAFE-T-GARD, and we expect to
 begin converting this interest into revenue in the near future.  Like the
 Company's SAFE-T-BAR occupant restraint system, the SAFE-T-GARD is another
 product that supports the Company's mission to be a leader in developing and
 marketing unique and innovative products to improve child safety in the
 transportation and educational marketplace."
     The SAFE-T-GARD (as well as the S-1 GARD) is a patented safety device
 comprised of a polyurethane wedge shaped assembly attached to a steel mounting
 plate that is fastened to the undercarriage of a bus just forward of the
 curbside rear wheels.  The products primary purpose is to "eject" or "push out
 from under the bus" a child or adult that has fallen into the path of the
 approaching rear wheels of an oncoming bus.
