Vega to Open Office in Georgia

/PRNewswire/ -- VEGA PROMOTIONAL SYSTEMS, INC. (Pink Sheets: VGPR) today announced it is opening an office in Georgia as part of the Company's plan to manufacture energy efficient pellet fuel from organic waste bi-products in the State.

Located in Tifton, Georgia, the 20,000 square foot facility will be a part of the Company's alternative/green energy manufacturing facility that when completed, will capitalize on the abundance of biomass in Georgia's Bioenergy Corridor and will have the capacity to produce several hundred thousand metric tons of biomass fuel pellets annually.

The State of Georgia ranks third in the nation as a potential source of renewable energy. The amount of privately owned forests in Georgia, more than any other state in the country, is the reason for the State's ranking.

Vega is seeking financial assistance from the State to build its manufacturing plant. When complete, the facility will create nearly 200 direct or indirect green jobs and address state energy priorities to adopt emerging renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies.

The U.S. Department of Energy announced July 7, 2009 that Georgia will receive $32.9 million in federal money to support energy efficiency and renewable energy projects across the state. The money is part of a total of nearly $82.5 million the department will award Georgia as part of the federal State Energy Program.

The Company will announce additional details about the Georgia manufacturing plant as the project moves forward.
