Mity-Lite receives large Malaysian order; Establishes distributor relationship.

OREM, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 26, 1996--Mity-Lite Inc. (NASDAQ:MITY), designer, manufacturer, and marketer of a variety of multi-purpose room furniture, Monday announced that the company has received an order for over 1,000 tables and carts from the new Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel, which is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 1996, is a five-star deluxe hotel. The hotel incorporates world-class convention and exhibition facilities, recreation and leisure, shopping and an international standard theme park, and is connected to Sunway Pyramid -- a shopping complex. The adjacent convention center will be completed in the middle of 1997.

The order was placed through Mity-Lite's new exclusive Malaysian distributor, Neocon Hotel Supplies Pte Ltd.

"In Malaysia, all hotels are facing staff shortages," said Wong Kum Hong, managing director for Neocon Hotel Supplies. "Mity-Lite tables have significant advantages over conventional wood tables. For example, their light-weight construction allows the hotels to handle them with limited staff. I am excited to be able to include Mity-Lite tables as part of my product line."

"Along with the Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel will provide another showcase for Mity-Lite as we continue to introduce our products to the Far Eastern markets," said Lon Allen, Mity-Lite's international sales manager. "We are also very pleased with the establishment of a relationship with Neocon Hotel Supplies.

"Neocon Hotel Supplies is one of the largest and most experienced dealers of institutional furniture in Malaysia and Singapore."

Founded in 1987, Mity-Lite Inc. designs, manufactures and markets a variety of lightweight, durable, folding leg tables, stacking chairs and related products used in multi-purpose rooms of educational, recreational, hospitality, government, office, health care, religious and other public assembly facilities. Headquartered in Utah, Mity-Lite serves national and international customers directly and through distributors.
