 OWENS & MINOR OPENS CUSTOMER DISTRIBUTION CENTER IN MEMPHIS
 RICHMOND, Va., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Owens & Minor, Inc. (NYSE: OMI) announced today the opening of its custom distribution center in Memphis, Tenn. The nation's second largest distributor of medical and surgical supplies has steadily increased its service to hospitals and other medical facilities in the Memphis area since the establishment of a distribution center in Jackson, Miss. in 1982.
 The 25,000 square foot facility, located in the Outland Business Center, will serve Memphis and western Tennessee, northern Mississippi and eastern Arkansas. The customer distribution center is specifically designed to meet the requirements of these healthcare communities with emphasis on providing just-in-time, stockless and other advanced distribution services in the most responsive, efficient and cost- effective manner yet developed.
 G. Gilmer Minor, III, President and Chief Executive Officer of Owens & Minor, Inc., stated: "The demonstrated loyalty of our current customers and their expressed desire for increased services has led us to make this investment in the economy of western Tennessee. Our Jackson facility has provided excellent service to Memphis over the years, but it's not local. This facility will allow us to give even better service to our valued customers in western Tennessee. We are committed to the continued growth of Memphis as a major healthcare center in the Southeast."
 Owens & Minor, Inc. headquartered in Richmond, Va. is a wholesale distributor of medical and surgical supplies, pharmaceuticals and other related products to hospitals and alternate medical care facilities. The company has 29 distribution centers serving 39 states and the District of Columbia.
