Actron Air announces Frosty Partnership

Actron Air becomes one of Frosty's major sponsors

September 8, 2010 - V8 Supercar star driver Mark "Frosty" Winterbottom is
pleased to announce that ActronAir has become one of his major personal
sponsors for the remainder of the 2010 season and beyond.

Top level Australian motor racing has played a significant part of the
marketing strategy that has assisted to propel ActronAir from a small family business to becoming Australia's largest locally owned manufacturers of world class ducted air conditioning systems.

The company's story began in 1984, when Garry Mundy and his two sons Robert and Kevin became interested in moving away from installing ducted air conditioners to designing a better system for Australia's extreme climates.
So they decided to design and build a system for the family home in Sydney.
The trio succeeded and news of the innovations of their product traveled
quickly. Soon the Mundy family was inundated with requests, and the
ActronAir Australian success story was born.

From these humble beginnings, the Mundy family quickly discovered that there was a gap in the market for high quality ducted air conditioning systems that were both energy efficient and designed for easier installation. It is this simple philosophy that has led to the Australian company's development of numerous air conditioning product innovations to broad customer and industry acclaim over the past two decades.

As of the start of the 2010 V8 Supercar enduro season this weekend, the L&H 500 at Phillip Island, a strategic marketing plan begins making "Frosty" an ambassador for this innovative air conditioning company. Large ActronAir logo signage will also appear across the sides of Winterbottom's racing helmet.

According to Simon Coates, ActronAir Business Manager, "We are delighted to be involved with such a talented and marketable V8 Supercar driver. We have enjoyed watching Mark reach the top level of his sport and the team behind ActronAir were unanimous in taking this step. We know that both Mark and our company are heading for an exciting future together."

"It is great to build a relationship with a sponsor that makes you feel like
you are an important part of their business and this is what we have
achieved with ActronAir becoming one of my major personal sponsors," Mark Winterbottom said. "I know this Australian company's products extremely well, having one of their state of the art climate control systems in my own home and I am proud to represent ActronAir because this company is a locally based manufacturer of premium quality home and commercial air conditioning products," Winterbottom added.

Regarded as the quiet achiever in the Australian air conditioning industry,
ActronAir has evolved into a fully integrated design, development and
manufacturing operation. The company's head office and world class 10,500 square metre manufacturing facility is located in Sydney and covers more than two hectares. The ActronAir manufacturing facility includes a sheet metal fabrication line and powder coating facilities along with commercial and residential product assembly lines.

For more than two decades, ActronAir has developed an enviable reputation for performance, reliability and customer service that is second to none.
The working knowledge vested in the company's principles, combined with more than 25 years of research and development, has resulted in the development of one of the quietest, most energy efficient split ducted and packaged air conditioning systems in the world.

Mark Winterbottom has competed with Ford's major V8 Supercar team, FPR, since the start of the 2006 season. During this time he has gained 14 race wins, 60 podium (top three) results, 77 top five race results and 119 top ten race results. The talented driver has also gained 14 pole (top
qualifier) positions and 38 top three qualifying results during his career
to date. He has finished more than 80% of his races with FPR within the top ten, and has qualified in the top ten in no less than 85% of his race starts with the team.
