MAZDA TO DEDICATE NEW COMPUTER CENTER/R&D FACILITY

 MAZDA TO DEDICATE NEW COMPUTER CENTER/R&D FACILITY
 FLAT ROCK, Mich., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Mazda today will dedicate a


new, $9 million information systems facility and research and development center adjacent to the company's Flat Rock manufacturing plant.
 The company has invited elected officials and business leaders to attend a grand opening for the 71,000-square-foot facility, which will be home to two Mazda subsidiaries, Mazda Systems Services of North America, Inc. (MSS) and Mazda Research and Development of North America, Inc. (MRA).
 "We are very pleased that the opening of this new facility allows us to continue our growth here in Southeast Michigan," said Yoji Toyama, who is president of Mazda (North America), Inc. and of MSS. "We have been committed to this community since our beginning here, and we are grateful for the confidence and support the community has given us in return."
 The two Mazda companies that share the new building are vital links in the network of operations Mazda has established in Flat Rock. MSS, which was established in October 1990, provides data processing, computer systems development and information systems consulting to the other Mazda affiliate companies. MRA carries out new parts and vehicle development and testing, and works closely with Mazda's local suppliers on the "design in" process.
 In recent years, MRA has invested about $1.8 million in its Flat Rock parts engineering and testing facilities. With its headquarters in Irvine, Calif., MRA also has a research and development center in Ann Arbor.
 The new building features an expanded computer-aided design (CAD) room and vehicle evaluation and disassembly facilities where value analysis and engineering will be conducted.
 "These new facilities enable us to further increase the number of locally designed parts and enhance simultaneous engineering between MRA and Mazda Motor Manufacturing (USA) Corp.," said MRA President Hiroshi Ozeki.
 Together, MRA and MSS employ over 140 people in Flat Rock, a number that has seen steady growth over the past two years. Ground breaking for the building took place in December 1990.
