GATEWAY 2000 TO HIRE 200 NEW EMPLOYEES BY YEAR'S END

 GATEWAY 2000 TO HIRE 200 NEW EMPLOYEES BY YEAR'S END
 NORTH SIOUX CITY, S.D., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- While many computer


companies across the country are laying off employees, officials at Gateway 2000 announced today that the South Dakota PC manufacturer will hire 200 new employees before Dec. 31, 1992.
 Employees will be added to many areas of the company, including sales, product development, customer service, technical support, manufacturing, inventory and shipping. Hourly and salaried positions will be filled.
 Gateway 2000 President Ted Waitt attributes the significant hiring blitz to tremendous increases in sales during the past 12-months and to the overwhelmingly positive response to new products the company has introduced this year. Revenues are estimated to top the $1 billion mark by year's end, surpassing 1991s record-setting $626 million year.
 "It has been a fiercely competitive year in the computer industry," said Waitt. "Many of the traditional PC leaders have been forced to take a serious look at the success of direct channel marketers such as Gateway. While many of our competitors are letting people go to improve their bottom lines, we are fortunate enough to be creating new jobs and improving the economy."
 Waitt also noted that the company recently completed a 250,000- square-foot expansion to its facilities, placing the majority of Gateway's 1,470 employees under one roof. Total plant square footage is 389,000.
 "Not only do we have need for more people, but we now have the physical space to put them. Space has been tight around here for a few months, and the completion of the facility has relieved some of our growing pains," he added.
 Applications for employment are available by calling 605-232-2455.
