 THOMAS INDUSTRIES AND SCHREDER LIGHTING OF BELGIUM
 ANNOUNCE JOINT VENTURE AGREEMENT
 LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Timothy C. Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer of Thomas Industries Inc. (NYSE: TII), and Francis J. Schreder, Vice President of Schreder Lighting, Brussels, Belgium, announced today that the two companies have entered into a joint venture agreement whereby Thomas Industries' Lumec subsidiary in Quebec, Canada, will manufacture and market roadway luminaires. The roadway luminaires, commonly used for lighting highways, roads, parking lots and parks, will be produced at the Lumec facility in Boisbriand, Quebec.
 The new joint venture company, Lumec-Schreder, Inc., will utilize the advanced technology developed by the Schreder Company. "These products, which use a high pressure sodium light source, will be much more energy efficient than the conventional incandescent mercury vapor and metal halide products," said Alain Poudrette, President of Lumec. "In addition, the products require less maintenance, due to Schreder's seal-safe technology and advanced optics," he added.
 Thomas Industries Inc. designs, manufactures and markets a broad array of commercial, industrial and residential lighting products, fractional horsepower compressors and vacuum pumps, as well as specialty products for commercial and consumer markets. Thomas has operations in the U.S., Canada, South America, Europe and Asia.
