NATIONAL STARCH CONTINUES EXPANSION IN THE PACIFIC

 BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- National Starch and Chemical Company has acquired two adhesives firms in the Pacific region, one in Hong Kong and the other in the Philippines.
 A.C.I. Hong Kong Limited (formerly a subsidiary of BTR Nylex Limited) is a leading manufacturer and distributor of a full range of industrial adhesives. Its products are sold extensively in Hong Kong but it also has significant sales into China.
 The second acquisition, Adhesive Technologies Incorporated of Manila, is a leading manufacturer of hot melt and non-solvented liquid adhesives used in a variety of packaging and converting applications. National plans to expand the manufacturing facilities to allow production of a wider range of products needed in the expanding Philippine economy.
 These new additions complement National's extensive operations throughout the region which now include a facility in virtually every major country in the Pacific.
 With the rapidly increasing demand for high technology products in Asia, National is well positioned to achieve strong growth in the future.
 National Starch and Chemical, a Unilever company, headquartered in Bridgewater, is a worldwide manufacturer of adhesives, resins, specialty chemicals and specialty starches with 1991 sales in excess of $1.75 billion.
