Roseville, MI – 4/9/2008 – Peninsular Cylinder®, a worldwide leader in the design and
manufacturing of world class air and hydraulic cylinders has launched an online configurator in
partnership with PARTsolutions, a leading provider of digital parts catalog technology and services, to
provide a digital 2D & 3D CAD library and configurator of Peninsular Cylinder engineered products.

“Our new PARTsolutions Cylinder Configurator makes ordering easier because our customers
can answer simple questions, thus eliminating the need for confusing cylinder catalogs and complex
engineering data.” said Brent Paterson, President of Peninsular Cylinder. “This keeps us at the forefront
of technology in all aspects of our service, our product and its delivery.”

“PARTsolutions is excited to partner with Peninsular Cylinder and looks forward to serving the
company with the best product configurator technology and lead generation network available, and to
serving their customers with the best quality CAD native digital catalog data possible,” commented Rob

places, including the Autodesk® Supplier Content Center, Machine Design Magazine CAD library, and
others to increase awareness and sales of their products. Peninsular Cylinder products will also be
available within PARTsolutions enterprise solutions, allowing Peninsular Cylinder to introduce their
products to new prospects worldwide independent of the CAD technology they may be using.

Peninsular Cylinder has dedicated specialists to assist its customers and distributors with
engineering, pricing and various other implementation requirements. Now, the new 3D Cylinder
Configurator provides another immediate service and a fast and efficient way for designers to utilize
Peninsular Cylinders in their designs, delivering both 3D models and 2D drawings.

PARTsolutions has Web-enabled the Peninsular Cylinder collection of Air and Hydraulic cylinders
available immediately. The online catalog will grow over time, allowing prospective customers to
graphically configure components with the sizes and features they need. Once configured, PARTsolutions
creates high quality, native CAD data including the accurate Peninsular Cylinder part number, which is
downloaded by the designer.
