JONES MEDICAL ACQUIRES NEW CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS AND CENTRAL DISTRIBUTION FACILITY

 ST. LOUIS, July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Jones Medical Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: JMED) today announced the recent acquisition of a 150,000- square-foot facility in the Westport area of St. Louis County, Mo.
 JMED's chairman and CEO, Dennis Jones, said, "The shear mass of our two most recent acquisitions has dictated that we consolidate four of our seven operations into a more efficient, centrally located one. The acquisition of a modern 150,000-square-foot facility, situated on 15 acres of prime St. Louis County real estate, will not only fulfill our immediate needs, but also accommodate our plans for continuing rapid growth. All of the company's branded products will now be distributed from St. Louis. This will free up space for additional capacity within each of our manufacturing operations in Canton, Ohio, Phoenix, Ariz., and Madison, Wis. Also, all marketing and adminr?ative functions will be consolidated into the new St. Louis operation.
 "In addition to the anticipated efficiencies associated with our forthcoming physical consolidation, some of our satellite operations managers will be more fully utilized at the corporate level. The depth of our management team is considerable, and bringing them together will provide a broader corporate management base upon which to further grow," Mr. Jones concluded.
