ALCO INTERNATIONAL GROUP SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH FRANTECH GROUP

 ALCO INTERNATIONAL GROUP SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH FRANTECH GROUP
 SAN DIEGO, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Alco International Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALIG) announced today the signing of an agreement with FranTech Group Inc., to set up a franchising system throughout the United States for the marketing and distribution of the Barrier Integrity Monitor (BIM). The BIM is an electronic device used in surgical procedures to detect the passage of fluids between health care workers and patients when a breech occurs in surgical gloves or gowns. The company feels that due to the dynamic nature of the product when used by hospitals, emergency rooms, dentists' offices and other environments that are exposed to the possibilities of transmitting infectious diseases such as AIDS, staph and hepatitis, franchising will offer one of the quickest methods for national distribution. The franchising system would set up hundreds of territories over the next several years to market and distribute the BIM. Franchising is one of the methods the company will use in its marketing mix to distribute the product worldwide.
 The terms of the contract call for stock and cash from future sales of franchises and the project is expected to be launched at the beginning of 1992. The company anticipates income from the sale of franchise territories as well as the capability of the franchisees to carry their own inventory.
 Alco, through its subsidiaries, operates two primary businesses: the marketing of medical products for infection control and women's fertility products, and the transportation of containerized cargo from South Florida to the Caribbean.
