KEMIRA ANNOUNCES EXPANSION

 KEMIRA ANNOUNCES EXPANSION
 SAVANNAH, Ga., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Kemira, Inc. today


announced plans to construct a $10.5 million research and development center and laboratory center adjacent to its plant on President Street Extension.
 The announcement was made in the board room of the Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA) by Risto Ojala, president of Kemira.
 The 50,000-square-foot facility will contain product and process development laboratories for both pigmentary and non-pigmentary products. New products and processes will move from the lab to the process development department for further refinement and testing before being given trial runs in manufacturing plants. Approximately 100 chemists, engineers and other professionals will be employed in the new facility.
 "This is especially welcome news," stated Richard Knowlton, president of SEDA. "Expansion of an existing company in our community is, in fact, an endorsement of Savannah."
 It is expected that the new facility will accelerate the development of new products and explore and implement new environmental technologies for both the sulfate and chloride manufacturing processes.
 "We at Kemira are very proud of our facility in Savannah," noted Charles Bell, senior vice president and director of operations for Kemira, "and are glad that we will continue to grow with the area."
 Kemira, Inc., is a subsidiary of Kemira Oy, a $3 billion international chemical company headquartered in Helsinki, Finland. The Savannah operations are currently the only U.S. based operations of the company.
