ARVIN INDUSTRIES POSTS RECORD FIRST QUARTER SALES

 ARVIN INDUSTRIES POSTS RECORD FIRST QUARTER SALES
 COLUMBUS, Ind., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Arvin Industries, Inc.


(NYSE: ARV) reported record sales in the first quarter of 1992.
 Arvin reported sales of $459 million for the first quarter, compared to last year's sales of $384 million. Net earnings for the first quarter were $4.2 million, or 12 cents per common share, after preferred dividends, compared to last year's net earnings for the quarter of $0.1 million, or a loss of 10 cents per common share.
 James K. Baker, chairman and CEO, said, "I am pleased with the $75 million or 19 percent sales increase for the first quarter, and I'm particularly pleased that EPS was 12 cents positive. Arvin will build on our first quarter record sales and deliver a nice earnings increase this year.
 "When compared to last year's first quarter performance, both the original equipment and replacement segments achieved sales increases of over 20 percent. Earnings benefited from production increases, new business, new applications, cost reductions and the increased sales of catalytic converters in the European Common Market," Baker explained.
 "Arvin's long-term strategy, which includes investment in quality and technology, is working. We are adding significant new business through our existing customers and gaining new customers as well. In 1991 the annualized sales volume of new application start-up with original equipment manufacturers exceeded $160 million. In addition, Arvin was named the development source on over $130 million in new application work. This will contribute to sales and earnings growth in future years," Baker said.
 "For the remainder of 1992, I expect improved earnings based on cost reductions and productivity increases, margin improvements and increased sales volume," Baker concluded.
 Arvin Industries, Inc., an Indiana corporation, is an international manufacturing company supplying automotive parts and related products and services in more than 100 countries throughout the world.
