TUSCARORA PLASTICS, INC. CHANGES NAME

 TUSCARORA PLASTICS, INC. CHANGES NAME
 NEW BRIGHTON, Pa., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Tuscarora Plastics,


Inc. (NASDAQ: TUSC) today announced that its name will be changed to Tuscarora Incorporated.
 John P. O'Leary Jr., president and chief executive officer, explained: "This change reflects the company's initiatives over the last few years to develop a broader range of industrial products. Tuscarora has become a recognized name in many markets where plastics may not be a part of the product mix. This name change is consistent with how these markets now perceive us."
 In addition to changing the company's name and graphic standards, O'Leary said the company has established or realigned several operating units.
 The Foam Plastics Group serves as Tuscarora's primary operating unit. Headquartered in New Brighton, it provides cushion packaging, material handling, flotation and thermal insulation products made from custom-molded expanded foam plastic materials.
 Tuscarora's Automotive Group provides the U.S. automotive industry with material handling systems and component parts, such as bumper cores. The unit is based in Holly, Mich.
 The Integrated Materials Group, also headquartered in New Brighton, designs and produces custom-made packaging using a combination of corrugated paperboard, fabricated foam plastics, wood and other materials. Formerly known as Packaging Concepts, the operating unit provides packaging solutions from three locations in Antioch, Ill., Conyers, Ga., and New Brighton.
 Tuscarora's Container Systems Group designs and manufactures reusable aluminum shipping containers for material handling applications. The systems feature a hinged design that allows the units to fold flat when empty for convenient storage and return transport. The Container Systems Group is based in Beaver, Pa.
 The Rigid Plastics Group is a small "start-up" plastic thermoforming operation also located in Beaver. As Tuscarora develops expertise in the thermoforming field, it expects to offer these products to the industrial markets it now serves.
 Tuscarora Incorporated, founded in 1962 in New Brighton, is the nation's largest producer of custom-molded foam plastic products made from expanded plastic materials. The company molds and fabricates these materials into protective packaging and material handling products for a wide range of industrial and consumer product manufacturers. The company also manufactures foam plastic shapes for use as thermal insulation and component parts for original equipment manufacturers. Recently Tuscarora began making corrugated internal packaging forms, returnable aluminum material handling containers and custom thermoformed plastics.
 Tuscarora currently operates manufacturing facilities at 20 locations and serves more than 1,500 customers in 40 states, Canada and Mexico. Tuscarora serves major industry groups including automotive, high technology, consumer electronics and other consumer durable goods such as appliances.
