 DONNELLY CORPORATION RECEIVES HONDA PRODUCTIVITY AWARD
 HOLLAND, Mich., June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Donnelly Corporation


(AMEX: DON) was awarded Honda of America's (HAM) Productivity Improvement Award today. The award recognizes supplier-initiated activities which result in significant gains in productivity or efficiency. Donnelly was among only nine of Honda's 246 North American suppliers to win a Productivity Improvement Award at the company's 10th annual Supplier Conference in April.
 Honda's Productivity Improvement Award particularly recognizes the work of Donnelly's Grand Haven, Mich., operations in supplying complete exterior mirror assemblies for the Honda Accord and Civic cars and the Goldwing motorcycle produced in North America and for the heater and temperature control units supplied on selected vehicles. Other Honda products supplied by Donnelly's Holland operations include complete interior mirror assemblies and modular window assemblies.
 Ron VandenBerg, senior vice president for Automotive Vision Systems at Donnelly, stated:
 "Honda has established itself as one of the highest quality automotive manufacturers in the world. This status can only be achieved by demanding the best from within your own organization and the best from those that you choose to work with. We are very honored to have been selected by Honda as one of Honda's suppliers and to have received their prestigious Productivity Award. We look forward to working together for many years to come."
 Dave Nelson, vice president for purchasing, for HAM, stated:
 "We are pleased to provide recognition to Donnelly associates for their strong commitment to supplying quality parts for Honda products. To meet the rigorous standards of a HAM Supplier Award winner is a serious challenge and these associates have risen to that challenge. They are on the leading edge of America's competitiveness in the motor vehicle industry."
 Donnelly's Grand Haven operations began production of Honda exterior mirror assemblies in November of 1987. Since then, the facility has more than doubled in size and employment has grown by approximately seven times. At today's ceremony, HAM officials presented Donnelly employees with a plaque for display in the plant and a video which shows HAM's manufacturing process and Donnelly's own parts being assembled into the vehicle.
