BenchMark Signs Manufacturing Agreement in Mexico for Antifreeze Production

Coldspring, Texas (January 14, 2014) – BenchMark Energy Corporation (OTC Pink:BMRK, a refiner and supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes, announced it has signed agreements with a processing company in Mexico to provide them with refined Glycerin, and for the production and shipment of BenchMark’s own brand of antifreeze for resale to consumer market here in North America.

Under the agreement, BenchMark Energy will supply increased shipments of refined Glycerin to its Mexican partner, and in return will be provided manufacturing, production, and shipment of BenchMark’s own brand of antifreeze, now to be marketed under the new brand name Timberline Antifreeze.

Once in full production, our Mexican production facilities should be on course to ship up to 150,000 gallons of antifreeze to the company per month. The Company anticipates that the first shipments of their new Timberline Antifreeze product should be on store shelves by the end of January 2014.

Mark Bateman, the CEO of BenchMark Energy Corp. commented, “We are very excited to announce our contracts with our Mexico partners for the production of Timberline Antifreeze as our first commercial Glycerin-based retail consumer product. We feel by utilizing our secure supply of Glycerin, and the environmental aspects of using our Glycerin-based product as opposed to Ethylene Glycol, that BenchMark will be providing a cutting edge new product within the antifreeze market.”

ADVANTAGES OF GLYCERIN BASED ANTIFREEZE

– Less corrosive on engine parts
– More cost-effective than Ethylene Glycol based Antifreeze
– Close to neutral on a corrosive scale
– Better for the environment (less toxic)
– Supportive of the renewable fuels industry

UNIT SIZES TO BE MARKETED

Timberline Antifreeze will be marketed in both 1 gallon containers, 55 gallon drums and bulk ISO containers. The 1 gallon containers will be focused on the retail market, providing a superior product at a lower cost per container than conventional antifreeze. Through internal and marketing price reviews they feel Timberline Antifreeze will be extremely competitive price wise to current antifreeze products on the market.

The 55-gallon drums and ISO containers will be marketed towards transportation companies, farmers, school systems, automotive repair shops, and other enterprises that service fleets of vehicles. Although launch is still pending for January 2014, BenchMark has already received indications of interest from transportation companies as potential pre-orders.

Additional blends of Timberline Antifreeze are expected in the coming weeks and months ahead.

Photos of the recent signing of this agreement will be posted shortly on our official Twitter account at https://twitter.com/BenchMarkE

Glycerin as a Greener Alternative to Ethylene Glycol in Antifreeze

Coldspring, Texas (January 09, 2014) – BenchMark Energy Corp (OTCPink:BMRK), a supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes refiner and supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes, announces that the use of Glycerin in BenchMark’s upcoming Timberline Antifreeze product line is a greener alternative to Ethylene Glycol in antifreeze and engine coolant products.  ASTM International recently announced standards wherein the use of Glycerin within antifreeze and engine coolant products is seen as a much more environmental friendly and cost-effective alternative than Ethylene Glycol, which is the most prevalent component today. Glycerin, which is nontoxic to the environment, was used as a heat transfer agent in antifreeze formulations as early as 1920, but was eventually replaced by Ethylene Glycol in the 1930’s due to cost considerations.

ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), is a globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of international voluntary consensus standards. Today, some 12,000 ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence.

ADVANTAGES OF GLYCERIN BASED ANTIFREEZE

– Close to neutral on a corrosive scale
– Glycerin is less corrosive to engine parts than Ethylene Glycol
– More cost-effective than Ethylene Glycol
– Better for the environment
– Supportive of the renewable fuels industry

UNIT SIZES TO BE MARKETED

Benchmark’s Antifreeze product line will be marketed in both 1 gallon containers and 55 gallon drums. The 1 gallon containers will be focused on the retail market, and through internal review, we feel could be very price competitive to current antifreeze products on the market.  55-gallon drums will be marketed towards transportation companies, farmers, school systems, automotive repair shops, and any enterprise that services fleets of vehicles. Although the launch is still pending for January 2014, Benchmark has already received indications of interest from transportation companies for pre-orders.

Mark Bateman, CEO of Benchmark Energy Corp. commented, “We are excited to announce the upcoming launch of Benchmark’s Antifreeze product line as its first commercial retail consumer product.  By utilizing our Glycerin supply and the positive environmental aspects of using Glycerin instead of Ethylene Glycol, we feel Benchmark is embarking on a cutting edge new product within the antifreeze market.”
