BFD COMPLETES FINAL PAYMENT ON ALPHA PRO TECH ACQUISITION

 MARKHAM, Ontario, May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- BFD Industries Inc. (NASD: BFDIF; Vancouver) today announced that it has satisfied its obligation under the $3.5 million (U.S.) secured promissory note issued in conjunction with its May 1992 acquisition of Alpha Pro Tech, Inc.
 Financing was provided under a funding facility from Allstate Financial Corporation, a short-term loan from Harberton Trading Ltd., a European lender, with the balance of the funding coming from BFD's own reserves, the company said.
 BFD Industries manufactures and markets a full line of patented eye and face shield products and surgical shoe covers for healthcare, industrial, and consumer applications. The shields are optically clear, distortion free and anti-fogging. They are also disposable in order to eliminate any chance of cross contamination.
