 THERMO ELECTRON TECHNOLOGIES CHANGES ITS NAME TO THERMOTREX
 SAN DIEGO, Calif., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Thermo Electron Technologies Corporation (AMEX: TKN) shareholders have voted to change the name of the company to ThermoTrex Corporation. The outcome of the vote was announced at the company's annual meeting, which was held June 9 at the American Stock Exchange in New York City. The decision to change the name was made in order to alleviate confusion with Thermo Electron Technologies Corporation's parent company, Thermo Electron Corporation (NYSE: TMO).
 Shareholders will not be requested to exchange their stock certificates. The ticker symbol, TKN, will remain the same.
 ThermoTrex Corporation develops advanced technology in electro-optic and electro-acoustic systems, signal processing, materials technology, lasers, and thermionic and thermoelectric direct-energy conversion. Currently, the company is developing several commercial products, including a sonic CT (computerized tomography) system for real-time imaging of soft tissues and internal organs, a passive microwave camera that would enable pilots to "see" through fog and clouds to enhance navigation, and a wind-shear detector that would provide pilots with advance warning of wind shears. ThermoTrex Corporation is a public subsidiary of Thermo Electron Corporation.
