ACX TECHNOLOGIES PROGRESS AT THE SAN ANTONIO ALUMINUM ROLLING MILL

 GOLDEN, Colo., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- ACX Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: ACXT) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Golden Aluminum Co., continues to make progress toward qualification of its continuously cast can body stock material from the San Antonio aluminum rolling mill. Several million beverage cans using aluminum body stock produced by the proprietary Lauener Block Caster process have been shipped to the retail markets by customers of the San Antonio Mill. However, Golden Aluminum has recently identified manufacturing issues associated with consistently delivering higher quantities of body stock material and is now making refinements to the manufacturing process which management believes will rectify this situation.
 "While we will not have achieved qualification in the first quarter," stated Jeff Coors, office of the president, "significant progress has been made, and we expect qualification in the next three to six months. The next step for Golden Aluminum is to establish the consistency and repeatability of the casting and sheet rolling process on multiple runs of even greater quantities to attain commercial qualification."
 ACX Technologies Inc. is a diversified technology company with businesses in the aluminum rigid container sheet, ceramics and folding and flexible packaging industries. ACX Technologies Inc. stock is listed on the NASDAQ national market system under the symbol ACXT.
