strengthens our financial group and enables us to commit greater resources to
our acquisition program."

     Davis added, "Naming Scott Fordham and Dennis Rampe to the position of
Executive Vice President - Operations, formalizes their leadership positions
within our organization.  Scott Fordham, President of Chas. P. Young Company in
Houston and Dennis Rampe, President of Precision Litho in San Diego, will
continue in their current roles, leading two of our operating companies.  In
their new capacity, they will work closely with certain of our other company
presidents on ways to better serve customers, improve operations and further
increase profitability."

Gaubert is new to the company.  Mr. Gaubert brings 25 years of financial
experience, which includes serving as Vice President, Chief Financial Officer
