Filtration technology provider chooses system based on performance, variety of input devices supported

Miami Lakes, FL — May 6, 2004 — Kaba Benzing, a time and labor management systems provider, today announced that Kansas City, Mo.-based BHA will begin implementing Kaba Benzing's B-COMM time and attendance and labor reporting software to simplify reporting of their employees.

BHA Group Holdings Inc. is a world leader in innovative filtration technology. Its two principal operating subsidiaries are BHA Group Inc., the world's largest supplier of replacement parts and services for industrial air pollution control systems, and BHA Technologies Inc., which manufactures and markets expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membrane products for use in a variety of industrial and consumer products.

B-COMM collects, processes and passes critical data, furnishing accurate labor information and complete labor accounting methods, to BHA's enterprise time and labor application. It supports labor distribution and material movement tracking for exempt and non-exempt personnel. The integrated solution extends enterprise solutions directly to production, payroll and financial departments by incorporating real-time data collection from remote geographical locations.

"We chose Kaba Benzing for our time clock system for three reasons," stated Gary Cheimis, vice president of Information Technology, BHA. "The first was the good reputation of the firm. The second was the superior performance of their system compared to their competitors. The third reason was the variety of input devices supported."

Using the Kaba Benzing integration, BHA said it would be able to capture employee time and labor information from all employees in the organization, using both Kaba Benzing B-Net terminals and data collection devices from other companies. B-COMM allows employees to enter time from remote locations regardless of the industry or geographical location. This data is collected and made available for multiple uses.

"We look forward to our partnership with BHA," emphasized John Edwards, president and general manager of Kaba Benzing America. "They're exactly the type of company that needs to install a time and labor management system that collects clean, accurate data once and effectively distributes that data to their enterprise system."
