Orbit International’s Power Group Receives Two New Orders Valued in Excess of $630,000

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orbit International Corp. (NASDAQ:ORBT), an electronics manufacturer and software solution provider, today announced that its Power Group, through its Behlman Electronics, Inc. subsidiary (“Behlman”), received two new orders with an aggregate value in excess of $630,000. The Company also reported that inclusive of these new orders, year-to-date bookings were 79% higher than the same period last year.

Behlman received a $409,000 follow-on order for a COTS high voltage power supply used in the U.S. Navy’s AN/UYQ-21 display console, the third order for this unit this year. This high voltage power supply was selected several years ago by the U.S. Navy to resolve an obsolescence issue on these display consoles used throughout its fleet. Deliveries are expected to commence in first quarter of 2012 and continue through the third quarter of 2012. Furthermore, the Company expects to receive additional orders for this power supply in 2012 and beyond.

The second order, totaling $230,000, is for a modified standard commercial power supply for a program at a leading federal research laboratory. Behlman’s ability to meet the customer’s stringent technical specifications and expedited delivery requirements helped it beat the competition for this order. Deliveries are scheduled in the current third quarter of 2011.

Mark Tublisky, President of Behlman Electronics commented with respect to the second order, “Behlman’s platform design concept allowed us to quickly address our customer’s technical and delivery needs. This capability has enabled Behlman to build strong relationships and recurring business with our growing customer base. Additionally, this competitive advantage has enabled Behlman to uncover numerous market opportunities helping to fuel our growth in sales.”

Mitchell Binder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Orbit International commented, “With the 79% increase in year-to-date bookings, business at our Power Group remains exceptionally strong, with growth and new orders coming from both our Commercial and COTS divisions. We see these favorable trends continuing through the remainder of 2011 and based upon orders and delivery schedules, we anticipate continued growth in 2012.”
