JOY TECHNOLOGIES TO RESTRUCTURE ITS KITCHENER, ONTARIO OPERATIONS

 PITTSBURGH, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Brian Watt, president of Joy Technologies Canada Inc. announced today that the company's operations in Kitchener, Ontario, were being restructured as a result of depressed conditions in the market for its air pollution control and manufacturing businesses in Canada.
 Watt confirmed that the Kitchener operation would continue to function as a center for sales, parts and service support, and construction management for its Canadian projects. The manufacturing plant at Kitchener will be closed after completing its current backlog. He indicated that these measures would result in personnel reductions, since engineering, manufacturing and procurement activities will no longer be performed in Kitchener. Costs connected with this restructuring are expected to be fully covered by reserves established in the last fiscal year for profitability improvement measures.
 "These steps are being taken as part of a streamlining and cost reduction program which Joy's Environmental Group initiated last year, resulting in the closure of the Monrovia, Calif., office and consolidation in Houston, as well as the disposal of certain non-strategic operations," explained Watt. He added, "Joy's Environmental Group intends to continue operations in Canada in its revised format. We regret the job losses in Ontario and especially regret having to part company with so many good people. We have no alternative, given the current market conditions."
 Joy Technologies Canada Inc. is a subsidiary of Joy Technologies Inc. (NYSE: JOY), a leader in the worldwide manufacturing and servicing of mining equipment for the underground extraction of coal and other bedded materials, and a leading provider of air pollution control and particulate handling systems for utilities and other industrial operations around the world.
