Cycle Country Announces Groundbreaking for New 28,000 Sq. Ft. Expansion to their Existing Plant Facilities in Iowa

MILFORD, Iowa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 30, 2002--Cycle Country Accessories Corp. (OTCBB:CYCY), the recognized leader in developing and manufacturing custom-fitted accessories for the all-terrain vehicle (ATV), is pleased to announce that the Company held the official groundbreaking ceremony for a new 28,000 square foot expansion of their multi-operational facilities on Friday, September 27, 2002. Several board members, the Company's executive management and all Cycle Country employees attended the event.

The new construction, which is slated for completion by January 1st, 2003, will expand all vital plant areas including manufacturing, production, shipping and warehouse operations. The Company has been experiencing nearly full capacity production levels throughout much of the last quarter. This has been attributed to stronger demand for Cycle Country's existing products, new product introductions and greater distribution for several products from the Company's two recent acquisitions.

The Company has sufficient land available for further expansion in the years ahead and plans to continue to take advantage of their strategic location for national distribution at the intersection of two major highways. The location at Highway 71 and 86 in Northwest Iowa facilitates the Company's complete operations including the executive offices and all manufacturing, production, shipping and warehouses. The recent groundbreaking for additional space follows their last construction expansion in January 1997.

Cycle Country president, Ron Hickman stated: "The successful completion of this sizable expansion will allows us to maximize further growth plans and allow us to consider additional acquisitions too. Solid demand for our new or improved ATV accessory products should continue to keep us at high production levels. We continue to ramp-up production for lawn & garden products from our most recent acquisition of Weekend Warrior. Further, our Wheel Covers segment and premium oil filters from our Perf-form Products acquisition continue to show amazing growth."
