 R.R. DONNELLEY ACQUIRES LABORATORIO LITO COLOR
 MEXICO CITY, March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- R.R. Donnelley and Sons


Company (NYSE: DNY), the world's largest provider of printing and related services, has acquired Laboratorio Lito Color, S.A. de C.V., a printer with operations in Mexico City and San Juan del Rio, Queretaro, Mexico.
 The purchase agreement that R.R. Donnelley signed in January was contingent on the Mexican government's approval, which has been granted.
 Located 90 miles northwest of Mexico City, the one-year-old San Juan del Rio facility manufactures catalogs and other promotional material. Called R.R. Donnelley (Mexico), S.A. de C.V., the new subsidiary also will print magazines for Mexico's fast-growing publishing market.
 Lito Color's Mexico City facility, which is equipped with prepress and sheetfed-offset printing capabilities, will serve as headquarters for R.R. Donnelley (Mexico). The company plans to more than double the size of the 40,000-square-foot San Juan del Rio operation by the end of 1993, adding a perfect binding line and another web press to the existing web and sheetfed equipment and saddlestitch bindery. Upon completion of this expansion, the two locations will employ nearly 200 people.
 Jesus Ramos, 35, president of Laboratorio Lito Color, will preside over R.R. Donnelley (Mexico), while Dale Rector, 45, formerly of R.R. Donnelley's Mattoon (Ill.) Division, has been named general manager.
 In 1991, R.R. Donnelley opened a new book printing plant in Reynosa, Mexico, as well as a sales office in Mexico City. In addition to catalogs, magazines and books, the company is the world's foremost printer of newspaper advertising inserts, directories, computer documentation and financial printing. Headquartered in Chicago, it operates printing plants, service centers, sales offices and subsidiaries in more than 100 locations in North America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.
