CENTRALIZED MAILING SYSTEM IN PLACE

 CENTRALIZED MAILING SYSTEM IN PLACE
 HARRISBURG, Pa., Mar. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- A new centralized mail


processing contract is saving the Commonwealth $3 million annually, while also creating jobs and economic investment, Secretary of General Services David L. Jannetta said today.
 "In the first six months, we have seen a net savings of $1.5 million in postage costs," Jannetta said. "Additionally, the contract has meant nearly 20 new jobs to the Reading area and millions of dollars in economic investment for Pennsylvania."
 Early last year, JETSORT Inc. of Reading was awarded a competitively bid contract for mail services. With this contract the state is able to take advantage of U.S. Postal Service discounts for pre-sorted and pre- barcoded mail.
 "The $1.5 million savings is the result of processing 38.7 million pieces of mail," Jannetta said.
 The mail volume is the accumulated amount for 17 agencies participating in the centralized service contract.
 "The savings already are exceeding our initial estimates," Jannetta said. "This is evidence of Gov. Casey's demands to return hard dollar savings to the Commonwealth."
 Vincent F. Carosella, president of JETSORT Inc., said that as a result of the state contract, the company made a $1.3 million capital investment in sorting and barcoding devices and over $1 million for other equipment.
 Carosella noted that the equipment was obtained from a Pennsylvania firm, which also provides maintenance under a $170,000 annual contract. Additionally, $140,000 in Pennsylvania truck leases are created through JETSORT.
 In terms of job creation, the contract with the Commonwealth brought 18 new jobs to the Reading area. Additional business was obtained from New York and Maryland, resulting in an additional 16 jobs. Overall, the JETSORT facility in Reading has grown from five employees in September 1990 to 70 employees today. The company's annual payroll exceeds $1 million.
