Sono-Tek Organizational Announcement

MILTON, N.Y., Aug. 28, 2012 — Sono-Tek Corporation (SOTK), announces a restructuring of its organization so that Dr. Joseph Riemer will become VP-Food Business Development and Stephen Harshbarger will assume the duties of President. Both executives will report to Dr. Christopher L. Coccio, Chairman and CEO.

According to Dr. Coccio, “Dr. Riemer has a long background in the food business and has brought to Sono-Tek unique knowledge of this market and customers. We feel the time has come, based on recent successes with large multinational food companies, to increase our focus on some applications in this area that have potential for our technology and equipment.”

Mr. Harshbarger has extensive experience at Sono-Tek in Customer Service, Sales, and Management of Sales and Marketing. He is intimately familiar with our products, markets, distributors, and customers. He will have the functions of Sales, Marketing, Technical Services, and Manufacturing Operations reporting to him in his new capacity as President.

This restructuring is designed to maximize opportunities in the current sluggish business climate in the US and overseas. Planned introductions of several new products in the electronics coating sector will help Sono-Tek enter into new and innovative applications where Sono-Tek’s ultrasonic spray technology provides the greatest benefits to manufacturers. These strategic changes also ensure that Sono-Tek will remain the industry’s leader for ultrasonic spray equipment in areas such as printed circuit board fluxing, semiconductor coatings, fuel cell, solar cell, and glass manufacturing.
