MANCHESTER, New Hampshire, October 4, 2005 -- Vette Corp., a global provider of thermal
management solutions, announces its expansion of manufacturing operations in Hengli Town,
DongGuan City, China and Linkou Shiang, Taipei County, Taiwan. Vette entered the thermal

supports the growth in our high-quality, high-volume manufacturing lines as we meet the supply
chain requirements of our customers for Vette's thermal solutions for VGA, BGA, PC
microprocessor applications and power semiconductor cooling. In addition, we are expanding our
recently launched cosmetically finished parts capacity to meet our customers' needs.
"The expansion also supports our use of new materials and manufacturing processes as we meet
our commitment to offer our customers the industry's broadest thermal management solutions set.
We already are in the early development stages of several exciting thermal solutions that require us
to expand our operations. The expansion we are announcing will allow us to support this growth,"
With the additional space, Vette now has more than 400,000 square feet of manufacturing facilities
dedicated to thermal solutions.
Thermal Management Continues to Grow
Vette's thermal management solutions remove heat that diminishes the performance of electronic
products across a wide array of industries. Heat dissipation problems in electronic components
and systems increase as consumer demands for a mobile and plugged-in lifestyle drive more
powerful computer chips to be integrated into smaller form factors. Leading analyst firms expect
the worldwide electronic thermal market to grow by 12.1 percent annually for the next three years
(estimated at $3.9 billion for 2004) with heat sinks and fans alone representing a $2.3 billion
