ELECTROCOM AUTOMATION RECEIVES CONTRACTS FROM POSTAL SERVICE AND VETERANS ADMINISTRATION

 DALLAS, Dec. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- ElectroCom Automation Inc. (NYSE: ECA) today announced the award of a contract from the U.S. Postal Service, and go ahead on a contract with the Veterans Administration.
 The Postal Service has awarded ElectroCom a $35.8 million contract to produce 249 Advanced Facer Canceller Systems. The contract does not include installation, transportation and spares, which are still in the process of negotiation. ElectroCom is the sole provider of these systems to the Postal Service and is currently providing 622 under a contract that began in 1989. The new program resulted from exercise of an option by the Postal Service under the original program. Deliveries will begin in June 1993 and will go through January 1994.
 The Veterans Administration contract is for $7.6 million to design and produce two automated prescription management systems for the outpatient pharmacy program, which includes ElectroCom's Flexpick(TM). The contract had been subject to a stop order since its award in September 1992, due to a protest by a competing bidder. These systems are to be located at two V.A. sites, and are to be delivered in July and December of 1993. The two sites are the first of 13 facilities expected to be automated by the Veterans Administration.
 ElectroCom Automation Inc., manufactures high-speed automated document processing systems for use primarily by the United States Postal Service and other government and commercial customers. The company also manufactures mobile data and voice communications systems and products for public safety and transit authorities, provides funded research and development, and recently began to produce materials handling systems and equipment for the commercial warehouse and distribution markets.
