 LAPEER, Mich., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Durakon Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: DRKN) announced the opening of a sales office in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The new sales office will operate under the name DURALINER do BRAZIL, and will provide a full range of services to Durakon's Brazilian OEM and aftermarket customers including product development and technical training, sales and marketing support, warranty administration and logistics services.
 Brazil is the largest pickup truck market in Latin America. Sales of domestic and imported pickups are expected to reach 130,000 in 1993. Durakon expects that the company's DURALINER pickup truck bedliners will serve a major part of the Brazilian market.

 In November, the DURALINER for the General Motors do Brazil A, C and D20 pickups will be introduced. Applications for the Ford Pampa, Volkswagen Saveiro, Fiat Fiorino and Mitsubishi L200 will be available soon.
