NISSAN, UNITED TECHNOLOGIES FORGE WORKING RELATIONSHIP

 NISSAN, UNITED TECHNOLOGIES FORGE WORKING RELATIONSHIP
 SMYRNA, Tenn., April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Nissan Motor Manufacturing


Corporation U.S.A. will be working with United Technologies Automotive to supply vehicle wiring harnesses to Nissan's car and truck manufacturing facility here.
 The relationship falls in line with Nissan's continuing commitment to increase both its purchases of U.S. auto parts and its network of high-quality U.S. suppliers.
 It also expands the relationship between Nissan and the Dearborn, Mich. company. Currently, Nissan receives electronic control modules and switches from United Technologies Automotive. Overseas, United Technologies Automotive supplies Nissan with wiring and interior trim components in Europe, steering wheels in Japan and electronic control modules in Mexico.
 "This relationship with United Technologies Automotive is yet another example of our pledge to buy more parts and materials from U.S.- based companies," said Howard Royer, vice president of Purchasing, Finance and Information Systems at Nissan. "United Technologies Automotive is committed to quality, as we are, and we're pleased to be working with them."
 Earlier this year, Nissan Motor Company Limited announced a new purchasing goal of $3.7 billion for the procurement of U.S. auto parts and materials in the company's 1994 fiscal year.
 Nissan U.S. manufacturing facility, located 20 miles southeast of Nashville, represents an investment of $1.2 billion. Its employees currently manufacture Sentra passenger cars and Nissan pickup trucks; assemble engines and rear axles; produce plastic bumper fascias; and provide stampings for the Nissan Quest minivan.
 Production of a midsize sedan, the Altima, begins in 1992, bringing the facility's annual production volume to 450,000 vehicles and raising total employment in Smyrna to approximately 6,000 employees.
 The facility is in the final stages of a $490 million expansion to accommodate the Altima.
 In North America, Nissan's operations include styling, engineering, manufacturing, sales, consumer and corporate finance, and industrial and textile equipment. Nissan employs nearly 10,000 people in the United States and Canada and generates an additional 55,000 jobs through its 1,400 Nissan and Infiniti dealerships located across the continent.
