 PETITION FILED WITH FEDERAL GOVERNMENT;
 REVIEW OF NATIONAL SECURITY IMPLICATIONS FOR CERAMIC PACKAGES URGED
 WASHINGTON, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Coors Electronic Package Company today filed a Section 232 petition "The Effect of Imports on the National Security" with the Department of Commerce urging action to reduce the United States' dependence on foreign manufactured electronic ceramic packages.
 Jim Wade, president and chief operating officer of Coors Ceramics Company, said, "The United States is dependent on foreign manufacturers for ceramic packages that are essential to semiconductors, missiles and a wide range of other military products.
 "This dependency weakens our military strength, diminishes the ability of U.S. companies, like ours, to manufacture ceramic packages and eliminates an opportunity that we have to increase American jobs. We have unique technologies that generate products made in America by Americans. It is time for the government to recognize its vulnerability to foreign manufactured ceramic packages and take action to correct the situation," Wade said.
 Grover Coors, vice president of National Affairs for Coors Ceramics Company, said, "This action is being taken because of our concerns for national security and the present dependence on foreign manufacturers for more than 90 percent of the ceramic packages used by the United States military.
 "Ceramic packages are critical to a wide range of advanced technologies. And domestic based sources of these ceramic packages must be available to meet military demands," Coors added.
 Coors Electronic Package Company is a state-of-the-art ceramic package company with major facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn., and San Diego. The company manufactures a wide variety of ceramic packages that protect semiconductors in virtually all electronic defense systems and are critical to the American defense industrial base.
