FLEETWOOD NAMED MANUFACTURED HOMEBUILDER OF THE YEAR

 RIVERSIDE, Calif., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Manufactured-Housing Group of Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. was named Manufacturer of the Year by the National Manufactured Housing Congress in Las Vegas, a group of more than 5,000 voting members from the manufactured-housing industry. This is the second year Fleetwood has garnered the top honor in this prestigious awards program, which is the first to recognize manufactured-housing achievements on a national basis.
 Nominees in 11 categories were selected from slates of candidates presented by state manufactured housing associations located throughout the United States. First given in 1992, the National Awards are now a fixture of the annual convention of the Manufactured Housing Congress.
 According to Congress Chairman Gub Mix, Fleetwood's award reflects professional opinions from throughout the manufactured-housing industry. Said Mix, "Our voters are lenders, retailers, and suppliers from all regions of the United States -- Industry peers who truly understand the challenges manufactured homebuilders face, and appreciate quality achievements."
 "Everyone at Fleetwood Enterprises is deeply honored to be chosen twice for this outstanding award," said Glenn F. Kummer, Fleetwood's president and chief operating officer. "We are committed to a new standard of excellence in manufactured-housing, and very pleased to see our efforts recognized from within the industry."
 Kummer said that quality policies initiated over the past several years had contributed significantly to Fleetwood's continuing growth and success. He added that the "One/Five Warranty" has given particular strength to the company's design, production and service goals.
 This year Fleetwood introduced its One/Five Warranty combining a one-year general warranty with an extended, five-year coverage on structural, electrical and plumbing systems. According to Kummer, the warranty is unprecedented in the manufactured-housing industry, because it has no deductible and no service charge.
 "Our One/Five Warranty underscores Fleetwood's commitment for its products and services," said Kummer. "This warranty lets buyers know we are proud of our work and truly confident in the quality we offer."
 Jon A. Nord, Fleetwood's senior vice-president of housing, said that the One/Five Warranty is typical of Fleetwood's customer-driven approach, and that this philosophy accounts for the company's 19.4 percent market share in 1992.
 "Our dedication to customer satisfaction supports all products and services, and the customers are responding accordingly," he commented. "I believe this most recent award will further enhance the tremendous confidence Fleetwood customers have in our homes and retailers," said Nord.
 Fleetwood Enterprises is headquartered in Riverside. Fleetwood now has 27 manufacturing centers selling to all 50 states. The Fortune 500 Company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, and offers a broad- range of manufactured homes and recreational vehicles. More than 2 million people live in homes built by Fleetwood Enterprises.
