FRUEHAUF STARTS JOINT VENTURE FOR AXLES IN CHINA

 FRUEHAUF STARTS JOINT VENTURE FOR AXLES IN CHINA
 ANAHEIM, Calif., July 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Fruehauf Trailer


Corporation (NYSE: FTC) has established a joint venture with Shunde Guang Lian Hong Communication Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd. to produce Pro-Par(R) trailer axles for markets in the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong and the Pacific Rim area.
 The announcement was made here by Fruehauf Trailer Corporation President and CEO Arthur E. Rowe during a press briefing at the International Trucking Show.
 The new company -- Shunde Pro-Par Axle Company -- teams the world's leader in truck-trailer technology, Fruehauf, with the leading trailer supplier of the Hong Kong/Pearl River Delta area -- the fastest growing economic zone in the world.
 Through the venture, Fruehauf's Pro-Par trailer axles will be assembled in the city of Shunde and used on the container chassis Shunde Guang Lian Hong produces, as well as marketed to Pacific Rim markets. The axles have been especially designed by Fruehauf for the Asian market.
 According to Rowe, a 70,000-square-foot assembly facility is under construction and will begin production early in 1993. Production and domestic content will grow over a multi-year, three-phase program, and within several years, the venture is expected to produce 40,000 trailer axles annually for this rapidly expanding market. Rowe said he is optimistic the relationship will grow to include other Fruehauf products as this new market develops.
 Fruehauf Trailer Corporation is the world's leading -- and only truly global -- truck-trailer manufacturer with affiliates and licensees in 20 countries on six continents around the world.
 Based in Southfield, Mich., Fruehauf offers a full range of van, refrigerated van, platform, dump, liquid tank and dry bulk trailers, containers and container chassis through the industry's largest customer sales and service network.
