GELMAN SCIENCES APPOINTS NEW CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER

 ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Kim A. Davis has been appointed President and Chief Operating Officer of Gelman Sciences Inc. (AMEX: GSC), effective May 24, 1993. Davis, 42, was formerly chief operating officer of Promega Corporation, a Wisconsin-based biotechnology company. He will be responsible for Gelman Sciences worldwide operations, including sales, marketing and manufacturing. Charles Gelman, company founder, chairman and chief executive officer, will oversee corporate research and development.
 In announcing the Davis appointment, Mr. Gelman said that Gelman Sciences, now with sales of approximately $85 million, manufacturing operations in Michigan and Florida, and eight subsidiaries outside the United States, is poised and ready for a period of dynamic growth. The addition of a chief operating officer would give Mr. Gelman, 62, the opportunity to step back from day-to-day detail and focus on longer- range strategic issues, strategic alliances, and the continued stream of innovative, new products into the marketplace.
 Gelman Sciences, headquartered in Ann Arbor, manufactures and markets microfiltration products used in laboratory research, high- technology process industries, and the medical health care field. The company's non-U.S. subsidiaries are located in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom.
 Prior to joining Gelman Sciences and Promega, Davis was president and chief executive officer of a privately held engineering graphics software company, and held sales and marketing management positions with several other companies, including The Boeing Company and Digital Equipment Corporation.
 Davis is a graduate of the Purdue University, Krannert School of Industrial Management.
