RuggedCom Inc., Concord, Ontario, Canada, July 27, 2011 –

RuggedCom Inc. (“RuggedCom”) (TSX:RCM), a leading provider of rugged communications networking solutions designed for mission-critical applications in harsh environments, is pleased to announce that the company has been granted ISO 14001:2004 certification.

Created by the International Organization for Standardization, the ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System standard focuses on minimizing an organization’s negative impact to the environment and compliance with applicable laws, regulations and other environmentally oriented requirements. Certification to ISO 14001 is voluntary since there are no laws requiring a company’s environmental management system be certified by ISO or any other standards association.

“RuggedCom technology has been providing rugged communications solutions for renewable energy and green power systems around the world,” said Marzio Pozzuoli, President and CEO of RuggedCom. “This certification demonstrates our commitment to protecting and improving the environment in our own backyard.”

RuggedCom also achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification in 2005 and has combined the Environmental Management Systems to form an integrated Quality and Environmental Management System.
