C.H. HEIST, LTD. AWARDED $2.3 MILLION ONTARIO BLUE WATER BRIDGE PAINTING CONTRACT

 CLEARWATER, Fla., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- C.H. Heist Corporation (AMEX: HST) announced today that its Canadian affiliate, C.H. Heist, Ltd., for the second time within a month, has been awarded a major contract to sandblast and paint a Canadian bridge. The Blue Water Bridge Authority has awarded Heist a contract totaling $2,371,797 for work to be done on the Blue River Bridge in Sarnia, Ontario. The project is scheduled to start this April and should be completed in October 1993. Previously, Heist had been awarded a $1.2 million contract for work on the Little Pic River Bridge near Marathon, Ontario.
 Heist officials stated that the sandblasting phase of the Blue Water Bridge project will feature full enclosure and ventilation, a technique which contains the sand as well as the old paint and rust blasted off the structure, thereby protecting the surrounding environment from pollution.
 C.H. Heist, chairman and president of the firm, pointed out, "This is the second million-dollar-plus project we have received this spring. The two contracts total $3,606,697 in work, a significant change from Canada's lackluster economy of the past few years."
 Heist, and its Canadian affiliate, C.H. Heist, Ltd., is a multifaceted industrial services firm specializing in cleaning and maintenance services for a wide range of industries, including chemical, petrochemical, power generation, pulp and paper, mining, nuclear and metallurgical plants and mills, especially those producing iron and steel.

Subsidiaries include: Pipe & Boiler Insulation, Inc., an installer and distributor of insulation materials, with emphasis on the industrial sector; Ablest Service Corp., a temporary help organization serving business, professional and industrial sectors with both white and blue collar professionals.
