 THE ANDREW JERGENS COMPANY ISSUES ANNOUNCEMENT
 CINCINNATI, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Andrew Jergens Company has


announced plans to close manufacturing operations at its Burbank, Calif., plant effective Oct. 25, 1992.
 This facility would have required substantial funding in order to remain competitively productive. Jergens said it will focus its investments and increase productions at its main plant in Cincinnati. The Burbank property will be for sale in the near future. Eighty-eight employees at this facility will be affected, and severance plans have been offered to all individuals.
 Management said it regrets the need to close this plant, but this action is part of a strategic plan to ensure competitive positioning of The Andrew Jergens Company for current product lines and for future developments. The current manufacturing operations in Cincinnati will be upgraded and modernized, enabling Jergens to accommodate expanded capacity needs and enhance its overall capabilities.
 The Andrew Jergens Company, based in Cincinnati, was founded in 1882. Today, Jergens' product line includes lotions, soaps and bath additives. Jergens is a subsidiary of Kao Corporation of America, the U.S. arm of Kao Corporation of Japan, a major consumer packaged goods company.
