THIOKOL EXPANDS LEADERSHIP -- THREE TO JOIN THIOKOL BOARD OF DIRECTORS

 OGDEN, Utah, Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Thiokol Corp. announced today the appointment of three new members to its board of directors. They are; L. Dennis Kozlowski, 46, chairman of the board, chief executive officer and president of Tyco Laboratories Inc.; James S. Ringler, 46, president and chief operating officer of Premark International Inc.; and Donald C. Trauscht, 59, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Borg-Warner Security Corp.
 "Thiokol's future growth, and its ability to manage change will require dynamic leadership. These three individuals will complement the existing board, bringing their own special talents into play. One has only to look at their backgrounds to appreciate the significance of these appointments," said John R. Myers, Thiokol's president and chief executive officer.
 Kozlowski has been associated with Tyco Laboratories for 18 years. Over that period sales grew from $50 million to $3.2 billion. Tyco manufactures fire protection, flow control, electrical products and packaging products. Tyco consistently ranks among the top 50 Fortune 500 companies for return on equity to its shareholders. Kozlowski holds a bachelor of science from Seton Hall University and a master of business administration from Rivier College.
 Ringler presides over Premark International. With annual sales of $3 billion, they are the nation's No. 2 rubber and plastics products conglomerate. Premark manufactures plastic products for food storage and food containers, toys, food preparation equipment, and decorative laminates. Ringler holds a bachelor of science and master of business administration from the State University of New York.
 Trauscht joined Borg-Warner Corp. as director of corporate planning in 1967. He later served as president of Borg-Warner Automotive Inc. He is credited with directing 75 acquisitions, and annual sales that today total $1.6 billion. Trauscht orchestrated a leveraged buyout of Borg-Warner, thus protecting the manufacturing conglomerate from an unwelcome takeover. He has since taken the security portion of the automotive firm public. Trauscht received his bachelor's degree in physics from St. Mary's College and a master of business administration from the University of Chicago.
 These appointments bring the total board membership to 10. Other directors include; Neil A. Armstrong, 63, chairman, AIL Systems Inc.; James R. Burnett, 67, retired TRW Space & Defense group vice president and general manager; U. Edwin Garrison, 65, chairman of the board, Thiokol Corp.; Charles S. Locke, 64, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, Morton International Inc.; Robert T. Marsh, 68, past chairman, Thiokol Corp.; John R.
