Elecsys announces expansion of its production facility

Olathe, Kansas (August 20, 2014) – Elecsys Corporation (Nasdaq: ESYS), a provider of
innovative machine-to-machine (M2M) communication technology solutions, data acquisition
systems, and custom electronic equipment for critical industrial applications, today announced
a planned expansion to its Olathe, Kansas production facility. The project will expand the
Company’s production facility by over 40% to a total of 85,000 sq ft. and should provide
additional capacity to accommodate the projected growth of the Company’s business over the
next several years. The facility expansion will be constructed by Miller Stauch Construction
who anticipates completion of the additional space in Summer 2015. Elecsys worked with the
City of Olathe and has been approved for both Industrial Revenue Bonds and a tax abatement
to develop the project.

Karl B. Gemperli, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are very excited
about the expansion of our facility in Olathe and look forward to working with both Miller
Stauch and the City during the project. We believe that this substantial expansion to our stateof-
the-art electronic manufacturing facility will position us to sustain our projected long-term
growth and pursue a wide variety of future business opportunities.”

“We’re so pleased that Elecsys has chosen to stay and expand its operations in Olathe,” said
Mayor Michael Copeland. “Elecsys solutions are relied upon by major organizations in diverse
industries across the world, including multinational energy companies and large industrial
original equipment manufacturers, and we’re lucky to have such an innovative company call
Olathe home.”

“This expansion is great news for Elecsys and for the City of Olathe,” said Tim McKee, CEO of
the Olathe Chamber of Commerce. “The additional 25,000-square-foot expansion will better
equip Elecsys for its continued growth, and the investment to Olathe is invaluable in terms of
economic development.”
