ELECTROCOM AUTOMATION NAMES THOMPSON PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

 DALLAS, May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- ElectroCom Automation Inc. (NYSE: ECA), announced today that G.D. (Dan) Thompson has been elected president and chief executive officer, succeeding Robert S. Buzard, 69, who is retiring.
 Peter C. Meinig, ECA board chairman, said, "We are extremely fortunate to have had an individual like Bob Buzard to nurture and grow our company. The figures speak for themselves. Under his 10 years of leadership, sales rose from $23 million to $470 million in 1992, and operating profits from less than $1 million to nearly $57 million. More important, he leaves ElectroCom poised for even greater growth in the future.
 "We are doubly fortunate," Meinig added, "to have Dan Thompson well prepared to follow in bob's footsteps. Dan has been with ElectroCom and its predecessor organizations since 1960. His experience and extensive knowledge of our business will assure a smooth organizational transition."
 Thompson, 55, was executive vice president and chief operating officer of the company and a member of the board of directors. Previously, he was senior vice president of finance and administration and chief financial officer.
 Buzard will remain a member of the ElectroCom board. He was named president and CEO of ElectroCom in 1983, when it became an independent company. Prior to that, he served in various executive capacities with its predecessor company.
 Buzard was with the Vought Corporation from 1950 to 1980. He joined the company following his graduation from Purdue University. During his final eight years with Vought, he was senior vice president and managed its research and engineering department, which included engineering, logistics and the advanced technology center.
