Art's Way Manufacturing Announces Their Wholly Owned Subsidiary, Art's Way Scientific, Has Been Awarded A New Contract With Texas Department Of Criminal Justice For Six Modular Swine Buildings

ARMSTRONG, Iowa, July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Art's Way Manufacturing Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: ARTW), announces its wholly-owned subsidiary, Art's Way Scientific, Inc. ( www.buildingsforscience.com), has been awarded a contract for six modular swine buildings from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. The modular buildings will be used in support of the Correctional Unit's Swine Farrowing/Nursery/Finishing Operations. The contract was awarded in a competitive bidding environment and is valued at approximately $750,000.

Dan Palmer, President of Art's Way Scientific said, "We are honored to have the opportunity to design, manufacture and install these six AG swine buildings for the State of Texas. They are a valued and repeat customer. It demonstrates the strength of our team and our unique capabilities within the modular AG buildings industry. These buildings fit our customer's need perfectly because they create the ideal environment for swine and the people who work with them. Our 'turnkey solution' is ideal for environments where the site must be closely controlled for security reasons. Our modular AG buildings are completely climate controlled, easy to clean and sanitize, and include the most advanced swine equipment including boar isolation, gestation, farrowing, nursery, finishing, feed study and show pigs - www.artsway-scientific.com/ag-buildings/hog-care. Our ability to design, construct and install 'ready to use swine units' in short period of time, made this a very easy decision for Texas."

J. Ward McConnell, Jr., Chairman of the Board, said, "We are beginning to see an increased interest for our modular agricultural buildings particularly in the Hog and Dairy industries. As a result of these contracts and other bids in the pipeline, as well as a very healthy farm income which has encouraged farmers to purchase new equipment and expand operations, we are anticipating Art's Way's consolidated revenue, income and gross margins to improve in the balance of fiscal 2013."
