 SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- FMC Corp. (NYSE: FMC) announced the retirement of Adolph M. Quilici, vice president and general manager of FMC's Defense Systems Group effective early 1993.
 The company also announced the appointment of Thomas W. Rabaut to succeed Quilici. Rabaut currently is general manager of FMC's Ground Systems Division which produces the Bradley Fighting Vehicle.
 Quilici's tenure at FMC started over 39 years ago after he graduated from Santa Clara University with a mechanical engineering degree. Starting at FMC in an entry level engineering position, Quilici, 62, rose to his current position as the senior FMC executive in California. He oversees the company's worldwide defense operations.
 He helped design the M113 family of armored personnel carriers and managed the U.S. Marine Corps amphibious assault vehicle program. He later ran the company's San Jose Engineering Division and then the San Jose manufacturing plant which in the early 1980s began production of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. He is a member of the board of trustees of the United Way of Santa Clara County, a member of the board of directors of the Santa Clara County Manufacturing Group, a member of the California Business Roundtable, a member of the Board of American Defense Preparedness Association, serves on the Santa Clara University Engineering Advisory Board, and is a former member of the Boy Scouts Council of Santa Clara County.
 In announcing the management changes, FMC's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Robert N. Burt said, "Those of us who have worked with Adolph appreciate his integrity, knowledge, people sensitivity, objectivity and loyalty to FMC. He is a great human being and manager, one who has served and represented FMC with distinction."
 Quilici and his wife Rosemary plan to stay in San Jose.
 Rabaut, 44, was operations manager for FMC's Ground Systems Division before becoming its general manager in 1990. He is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy and served in the U.S. Army. He joined FMC in 1977 after receiving an MBA from the Harvard School of Business. He was general manager of FMC's Steel Products Division in Anniston, Ala., and has had management responsibilities in FMC's machinery and petroleum equipment businesses.
 FMC Corp. is one of the world's leading producers of chemicals and machinery for industry, government and agriculture. The Chicago-based company reported annual sales of $3.9 billion in 1991, with international sales to more than 100 countries accounting for 43 percent of total annual revenues.
