INTERMEC WITHDRAWS FROM SCAN-TECH '92; SHIFTS FOCUS TO ITS OWN EDUCATIONAL FORUMS

 INTERMEC WITHDRAWS FROM SCAN-TECH '92;
 SHIFTS FOCUS TO ITS OWN EDUCATIONAL FORUMS
 EVERETT, Wash., June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Intermec Corp. today announced it has withdrawn from Scan-Tech '92, and will instead develop its own educational forums in response to customer requests. A pioneer and leader in the automatic identification industry, Intermec said Scan-Tech is "no longer congruent with our strategic goals."
 Intermec President John W. Paxton described the company's decision by saying: "Intermec's strategy, to provide all of the primary hardware and software tools required for real-time, wired and wireless data collection networks, is aimed at developing solutions for information management. Focusing on solutions has enabled us to develop solid partnerships with thousands of customers around the world.
 "Many of our customers have asked us to sponsor more technical and educational forums that focus on applications; on what can be achieved with our technology and the return on investment. We have already enjoyed great success with our independent Users Group, and its annual Educational Symposium and related technical workshops. It is clear more company-sponsored forums will fill a need.
 "Consequently, we are now developing and will soon announce an expanded schedule of technical and other educational workshops, which will be held throughout North America, throughout the year. We will also expand our participation in industry-specific trade shows, and enhance support of our VAR program."
 Paxton underscored the need to impart knowledge about what can be accomplished with technology in specific application areas. "We can better provide our customers and markets with that kind of need by concentrating our resources on forums that cover how best to apply this technology for the greatest return."
 He said the decision to participate in international Scan-Tech events would be made on a case-by-case basis, considering the individual merit of each event when weighed against Intermec's strategic objectives.
 For over 25 years, Intermec has been a leading force in the automatic identification industry. During that time, the company evolved from a small technology-driven company specializing simply in bar code technology, to a market- and customer-driven world leader in automated data collection technology and solutions for information management.
 In 1991, Intermec merged with Litton Industries. As part of Litton's Industrial Automation Group, Intermec now plays a critical role in providing a comprehensive range of capabilities for automating production processes, material handling and information management systems.
