SERV-TECH WINS LAWSUIT

 SERV-TECH WINS LAWSUIT
 HOUSTON, June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Serv-Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: STEC)


today announced that it was awarded a $12,500,000.00 verdict by a Houston, jury against Stewart & Stevenson Services, Inc., Ohmstede Mechanical Services, Inc. and Ohmstede Inc., both of Beaumont, Texas. The award does not include attorney's fees or prejudgment interest, which will be decided later today. The jury found that Stewart & Stevenson Services had failed to comply with the terms of a secrecy agreement with Serv-Tech, and that the defendants had conspired to misappropriate confidential information when they entered the heat exchanger services market.
 R.W. Krajicek, chairman of Serv-Tech's board, stated that the court's decision found that Stewart & Stevenson had utilized confidential information in violation of its agreement with Serv-Tech by building heat exchanger equipment for Ohmstede Mechanical Services, a company founded, in part, by former employees of Serv-Tech. Krajicek said, "We have spent more than two years and over $1.5 million pursuing this matter. The court's decision has vindicated our efforts to protect our technology and confidential information."
 Although it is not yet known whether the defendants will appeal the verdict, Serv-Tech remains optimistic about the outcome of any such appeal.
