 VIDEO DISPLAY CORPORATION BEGINS MEXICO CRT PRODUCTION
 ATLANTA, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Video Display Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: VIDE) today announced that the company has initiated production and marketing operations in a newly leased 140,000-square-foot facility located in Monterrey, Mexico.
 Ron Ordway, chief executive officer of Video Display, stated that the Monterrey operation has begun production of new monochrome cathode ray tubes (CRTs) and electron guns for CRTs and is scheduled to produce new color CRTs as well.
 The facility, which began production on Nov. 18, has received orders to date for nearly 70 percent of its existing capacity.
 Video Display Corporation, the only major recycler of television picture tubes and other types of CRTs, anticipates that the addition of the Monterrey facility to its four United States manufacturing facilities should allow the company to maintain its lead in this rapidly expanding environmental field.
 The company spokesman stated that the new facility is completely an expansion of business and that none of its U.S. operations would be reduced or eliminated by this action. The company currently employs approximately 450 people in its manufacturing and marketing facilities in 12 states within the United States.
 Video Display Corporation, headquartered in Tucker, Ga., is traded on the NASDAQ (NMS) under ticker symbol "VIDE."
