 ANACOMP COMPLETES 340,000-SQUARE-FOOT MULTI-USE FACILITY;
 CONSOLIDATION OF 1,000 EMPLOYEES WILL CREATE OPERATIONAL SAVINGS
 ATLANTA, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Anacomp, Inc. (NYSE: AAC) today announced that it has completed construction of its new manufacturing, engineering and sales facility in Poway, Calif., and is currently consolidating under one roof approximately 1,000 employees from 11 scattered San Diego County sites.
 The 340,000-square-foot, $26 million building is the multinational company's largest facility and will house about one-fourth of Anacomp's worldwide workforce.
 In addition to equipment production and reconditioning, the facility will house engineering and administrative offices as well as the firm's International Division and other support services.
 The 18-month design and construction process will result in operational savings of about $60 million over the next 10 years, according to Anacomp Vice President of Manufacturing James Blanchard.
 "We'll benefit by reduced space, lower rental, transportation, utility and inventory costs, and other efficiencies made possible by consolidating our employees from different facilities over a 22-mile area of the county," Blanchard said.
 "Our estimated cost savings don't account for an expected increase in productivity caused by the proximity of team members to each other," he added. "There's no way to measure the impact of eliminating travel between facilities, but we expect it to be significant."
 The move makes Anacomp the largest employer in Poway. The facility's developer is Mission D.A.I. 1 of San Diego, a joint venture of D.A.I. Industrial, with Western Devcon Inc. as general partner, and the Mission Land Company. The facility was designed by Gene Cipparone, architect, with construction and improvements by Lusardi Corporation. Financing was arranged by Goldstone Real Estate Finance, with Commercial Center Bank as construction lender.
 Anacomp, a $635-million company with executive headquarters in Atlanta, is the world leader in micrographics equipment, supplies and services. It maintains more than 4,600 employees and 200 distributors in North America, South America, Europe and the Pacific Rim, and has clients in banking, insurance, manufacturing, health care, retailing and other businesses, as well as in government, the military and other information-intensive institutions.
