KERR-MCGEE VANADIUM PLANT EARNS QUALITY AWARD

 OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. 30 ~PRNewswire~ -- Kerr-McGee Chemical Corp.'s Soda Springs, Idaho, vanadium plant has earned a 1992 Preferred Supplier Award from the Monsanto Co. (NYSE: MTC) for providing consistent, high-quality product.
 Monsanto's Pensacola, Fla., chemical plant uses Kerr-McGee's vanadium pentoxide in a proprietary maleic anhydride catalyst, which is then used in plastics manufacture. Less than 1 percent of Monsanto - Pensacola's more than 2,000 suppliers are designated "preferred suppliers." Monsanto's quality program recognizes four tiers of suppliers: partner, preferred, approved and supplier. Only six of its suppliers meet the extremely high standards necessary for a partner award.
 Brian Thomas, senior process engineer at Soda Springs, is responsible for the plant's quality program. "We feel quality is of vital importance in order to survive in the vanadium market. This award is the result of support from Kerr-McGee Chemical Corp. and a push at the Soda Springs plant to become the best vanadium supplier in the world," Thomas said.
