GREENMAN TO RETIRE AS ROGERS CORPORATION BOARD CHAIRMAN

 ROGERS, Conn. Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Rogers Corporation (AMEX: ROG) announced today that Norman L. Greenman, chairman of the board of directors, will retire from that position at the end of this year.
 During 44 years at the corporation, Greenman led the transformation of the business from a small Connecticut manufacturer of electrical insulation and gasketing material to a multinational enterprise providing a wide range of polymeric materials and components to the electronics and other selected markets. When Greenman became president 26 years ago, sales were $18 million. In 1991, sales were $182 million.
 This sales and market expansion was achieved under Greenman's leadership, primarily through the internal development of a large number of polymer-based products, including: circuit materials for commercial and defense applications, high performance elastomers for footwear, printing, automotive and office equipment applications, thermoset molding materials for electrical and automotive applications, and electronic components for computer and defense applications. In addition, he led the company into three joint ventures that have expanded Rogers long-term potential in four different product lines.
 Greenman joined Rogers Corporation as a product development engineer in 1948, after three years of military service in World War II and completion of his college education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering. He became Technical Director in 1949, and was elected vice president-marketing in 1960. In 1961, he was elected vice president of operations; in 1964, executive vice president and director; and, in 1966, president and chief executive officer, positions he held until April 1992, when he became chairman.
 Speaking on behalf of the board and for all Rogers' employees, Harry Birkenruth, president and chief executive officer, said, "No single individual played as great a role in the growth of Rogers. We thank him for his many contributions and years of leadership."
 Greenman will remain active in a number of business interests, but mainly as president and CEO of Circuit Components, Inc., a former division of Rogers.
