CHRYSLER HONORS EMPLOYEES FOR 1992 PATENT AWARDS

 HIGHLAND PARK, Mich., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Chrysler Corporation (NYSE: C) will recognize the 76 individuals awarded patents in 1992 at a dinner this evening at the Chrysler Technology Center (CTC) in Auburn Hills, Mich.
 Jerome B. York, Chrysler's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, the speaker at the dinner honoring the patent recipients, said 16 of the individuals were awarded more than one patent and six of those were each issued three patents in 1992. Seven of the patent recipients have retired since being awarded their patents.
 York, who has an engineering background, said he was particularly impressed by the six who were issued three patents each in 1992, "because it took me five years to get my three patents."
 He said a record of more than 185,000 patent applications were filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office last year, and nearly 110,000 patents were granted -- also a record.
 The patents granted Chrysler employees included a conveyor anti- runaway apparatus, an upper mount for suspension strut, a child- restraint system adjustment mechanism, and a flexible fuel sensor system, reflecting the efforts of employees in a wide variety of Chrysler departments, ranging from design to maintenance.
 York pointed out that 47 percent of the U.S. patents issued in 1991 were from foreign countries, up from 31 percent in 1972. Japan, he said, leads all foreign countries in applying for and being granted U.S. patents.
