JOHN BROWN STREAMLINES NORTHEASTERN OPERATIONS

 JOHN BROWN STREAMLINES NORTHEASTERN OPERATIONS
 /ADVANCE/ STAMFORD, Conn. and BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Nov. 12


/PRNewswire/ -- John Brown, a member of the Engineering Division of Trafalgar House, announced its intention to combine the resources of its Northeastern Regional Operations into a single location between its existing offices in Stamford and Berkeley Heights.
 Dan H. Stites, senior vice president and general manager of the Northeastern U.S. Operations, made the announcement saying, "This decision is a key element in our long-term strategy to strengthen John Brown's position in the U.S. market. We want to better serve the needs of our U.S. and international clients by providing a leaner, more responsive organization. Equally important, we want to be in the best location to maintain and attract a first-class workforce."
 The new location has not yet been identified; however, the demographics of current employees, clients and proximity to an international airport will be important considerations. The intent is to identify a facility that is within commuting range for current employees. A search for a new location has been initiated.
 Stites also announced that a comprehensive plan is being developed to minimize disruptions to current projects and valuable employees. Projects already underway will not be relocated in mid-stream. Rather, they will be carried out in the offices in which they were begun. A host of options to facilitate employee commuting is being investigated, including car pools, van pools, flexible working hours and a flexible work week.
 The ultimate timing of the relocation is dependent upon a number of factors. However, the plan envisions that the New Jersey office relocation will be complete by mid-1993 and the Stamford office by mid- 1995.
