LUCAS PLANS TO RELOCATE ITS HOIST PRODUCT LINE

 RESTON, Va., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Lucas will be relocating the general management and production of its hoist product line from its facility in City of Industry, Calif., to its Brea, Calif., facility.
 The move comes as a result of a company-wide effort to group like technologies within the same facility in order to maximize efficiency and effectiveness. The hoist, which utilizes hydromechanical and electromechanical motors and electronic controls, fits with the product lines currently produced at the Brea facility. The move of the product line will begin August 1, 1993, and will progress over a 12-month period.
 Lucas manufactures hoists that are proven in military, government and commercial service around the world. The company is currently the sole supplier of internally mounted rescue hoists to the U.S. Army.
 Lucas' aerospace businesses are leading suppliers of aerospace systems and equipment with annual sales of $1.2 billion and operating facilities across North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, as well as associated companies, joint ventures, marketing and customer support facilities around the world. The businesses are part of Lucas Industries plc -- an international organization serving the aerospace, automotive and other selected markets, with sales of $4.5 billion.
