CXT(R) Inc. Subsidiary of L.B. Foster Awarded Federal Government Contracts

     Company to Supply Concrete Buildings for Various Federal Agencies



    PITTSBURGH, July 25 /EMWNews/ -- Pittsburgh-based L.B.

Foster Company (Nasdaq: FSTR) announced today that CXT(R) Inc. (L.B.

Foster's wholly owned subsidiary and herein "L.B. Foster") has been awarded

a new five-year agreement with the US Forest Service (FS) and a five-year

extension of a previous US General Services Administration (GSA) agreement

to supply its CXT Concrete Buildings nationally. These contracts allow

various federal government agencies to purchase these buildings under

favorable terms from the Company.



    Per Gary Burger, National Sales Manager, its buildings present a very

unique value for their customers. "Our concrete restrooms are fabricated

with high strength precast concrete to meet all local building codes and

textured to match local architectural details. All of our buildings are

designed to meet A.D.A. requirements and to withstand snow, wind and zone-4

seismic loads. The all-concrete construction also makes the buildings easy

to maintain and withstand vandalism. The Company's various restrooms,

showers and concession buildings are available in multiple designs,

textures and colors and delivered complete and ready-to-use, including

plumbing and electrical where applicable. With over 10,000 installations

nationwide, we believe that we are the leader in prefabricated concrete

restrooms."



    According to David Steiger, Vice President, "These agreements make it

easy for federal government agencies to purchase our precast concrete

buildings. In turn, we can process and expedite their orders very

efficiently. We view the federal government as a key customer of our

go-to-market strategy to aggressively grow our business in the future."



    The Company also has numerous state contracts which allow various state

and local agencies to purchase directly from them as well.



    The Company manufactures these precast concrete buildings at facilities

in Spokane, WA and Hillsboro, TX.



    L.B. Foster Company is a leading manufacturer, fabricator and

distributor of products for rail, construction, utility and energy
