TIE/COMMUNICATIONS PURCHASES LARGE FLORIDA CUSTOMER BASE

 TIE/COMMUNICATIONS PURCHASES LARGE FLORIDA CUSTOMER BASE
 SEYMOUR, Conn., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- TIE/communications, Inc. (AMEX: TIE), a major marketer of business communications products and services, has acquired the installed customer base of Nortec Applied Systems, Inc., of Boca Raton, Fla.
 The acquisition, part of an aggressive national expansion effort, means that TIE becomes the primary provider of sales, repair and installation service for an additional 1,600 business customers. Terms were not disclosed.
 Brian J. Kelley, TIE's executive vice president, said the company plans to direct the Boca Raton operation from its regional headquarters in Miami Lakes. The acquisition was particularly attractive, Kelley said, because many of the customers already own TIE telecommunications equipment or Mitel PBX systems. TIE is a Mitel Elite dealer and is one of the few distributors of that high-quality PBX line with a national presence.
 "The Nortec acquisition solidifies our strong market share in Florida and brings a large block of TIE and Mitel customers under our service umbrella," said Kelley. "Since we started our continuing expansion drive last fall, we have purchased customer bases and related assets in 11 states. This underscores our commitment to provide the highest-quality products and services to both old and new TIE customers."
 TIE's 68 North American branch offices -- 56 in the U.S. and 12 in Canada -- support about 122,000 continuing service customers. The company has recently announced a series of products and service enhancements, including introduction of an expanded line of System 4002 and 5002 Plus voice mail equipment, On Hold Marketing Services and attainment of Mitel Lite dealer status. TIE also offers a broad line of all-digital telephone systems, LAN/WAN, PC management services, long distance products, customized security services and other business communications products and services. Following a series of product and service enhancements, the company recently reported second quarter net income of 6 cents a share, its most profitable quarter from operations since the fourth quarter of 1984.
 TIE is a member of the Marmon Group of companies, an international association of more than 60 autonomous manufacturing and service companies with annual sales of nearly $4 billion.
