VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Luxor Industrial Corporation (PINK Sheets:LXRRF) (TSX-V:LRL) wishes to announce that it has commenced manufacturing of 3 ply Access Mats for Hampton Lumber Sales – Canada, the Canadian Division of one of the largest North American privately held forest products companies, Hampton Affiliates. Access Mats or Swamp Mats are used to protect the environment and top soil in environmentally sensitive areas such as farming or grazing lands, and to provide safe and reliable “access roads” and “working platforms” over wet ground or muskeg. At times, these special mats are deployed to protect endangered species where government regulations do not permit vehicles to travel on the earth or where vehicle entry is very restricted. These mats are environmentally friendly, transportable and reusable, lasting for several years of field service.
Hampton’s brochure lists the following applications and features & benefits of Luxor’s mats:
|Transmission Line||Longer Life, Less Board Wear|
|Pipeline||Fastest & Easiest to Clean|
|Oil & Gas||High Shear Strength, High Load Capacity|

|Trailer Foundations||Higher ROI for Rental or Capital Cost Projects|
“The association with Hampton, a major North American forest products company, provides Luxor with an excellent opportunity to increase its mat production and develop other areas of business,” states Terry Lashman, CEO of the Company.
