Orbit International's Power Group Receives New Order for a Power Supply Used in Oil and Gas Exploration Valued at Approximately $1,360,000

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--

Orbit International Corp. (NASDAQ:ORBT) today announced that its Power Group, through its Behlman Electronics, Inc. ("Behlman") subsidiary, received an order in its commercial division for a power supply used in oil and gas exploration valued at $1,359,800. Behlman has been supplying its customer with this unit since 1995 and to date Behlman has shipped over 1600 units. Deliveries under this contract are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2013 and continue through the first quarter of 2014.

Ron Storm, President of Behlman Electronics commented, "Behlman's ability to operate in niche markets explains our continued success during these challenging economic times. Our commitment to being a power solutions provider has allowed Behlman to uncover these types of long-term production programs, enabling us to build a strong base of repeat business which has been a key factor in our sales growth. As a result, we remain confident that our business will remain strong for the balance of this year and in 2013."

Mitchell Binder, President and CEO of Orbit International commented, "We are very encouraged by this order and the potential for future business in the oil and gas exploration market. 2012 has been a strong year of bookings for Behlman, mostly coming from its COTS division for follow-on orders on legacy programs. This order greatly improves our year-to-date commercial bookings, which bodes ell for continued improvement in the operating performance for our Power Group. Most of Orbit's recent large orders have come from our Power Group; however, our Electronics Group has several outstanding proposals for equipment on legacy programs and we expect to book several significant orders before year-end or in the first quarter of 2013."

Orbit International Corp. is involved in the manufacture of customized electronic components and subsystems for military and nonmilitary government applications through its production facilities in Hauppauge, New York, and Quakertown, Pennsylvania; and designs and manufactures combat systems and gun weapons systems, provides system integration and integrated logistics support and documentation control at its facilities in Louisville, Kentucky. Its Behlman Electronics, Inc. subsidiary manufactures and sells high quality commercial power units, AC power sources, frequency converters, uninterruptible power supplies and COTS power solutions.
