MOTOROLA OPENS NEW EQUIPMENT CENTER TO SERVE GROWING CHINA MARKET

 ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola, Inc.'s (NYSE: MOT) Cellular Infrastructure Group (CIG) today announced the opening of a duty free Module Replacement Center in Shanghai, China. The center, which is the first facility of its kind in China, will provide in-country replacement modules for Motorola's cellular infrastructure equipment. Two freight transportation companies, China Interocean of the United States and SINOTRANS of China, along with the Chinese government, participated with Motorola in establishing the center. Chinese nationals will manage the facility.
 Motorola opened the center to provide improved product service and support for its customers. Previously, cellular operators waited up to several months for the arrival of imported replacement modules. The center will maintain proper inventory levels to ensure maximum in-country support for Motorola customers. The immediate availability of replacement modules will significantly reduce equipment down time and allow operators to continue to provide high quality service to their subscribers.
 "In-country product support is essential for providing the high level of service and customer satisfaction that CIG believes necessary for its Chinese cellular infrastructure customers," said Pertti Johansson, vice president and general manager of CIG's International Cellular Infrastructure Division. Added Richard Chandler, corporate vice president and general manager of CIG's Cellular Products Division, "We are proud to announce the implementation of our Shanghai module replacement center and look forward to further opportunities to support China's exciting and rapidly growing cellular market."
 Motorola cellular systems in China have seen tremendous growth, more than tripling over the past year. Systems supplied by Motorola cover regions that represent more than half of the population and GNP of China. Motorola provides cellular infrastructure sales and support in Shanghai and Beijing, and has a manufacturing partnership in Hangzhou.
 Motorola is one of the world's leading providers of wireless communications and electronics equipment, systems, components and services for worldwide markets. Products include two-way radios, pagers, personal communications systems, cellular telephones and systems, semiconductors, defense and aerospace electronics, automotive and industrial electronics, computers, data communications and information processing and handling equipment. Sales in 1992 were $13.3 billion.
