has caused this notification to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned
thereunto duly authorized.

Date:  September 27, 2002         By : /s/ Marc S. Steinberg
                                       Marc S. Steinberg, Vice President and
                                       Chief Financial Officer

                           Attached Extra Sheet No. 1

Explanation for Item 3, Part IV -- The Registrant currently expects to report an
estimated net loss of approximately ($1,144,000) or ($.28) per basic share for
the fiscal year ended June 29, 2002, compared to net income of approximately
$303,000 or $0.07 per basic share for the fiscal year period ended June 30,
2001. The decrease in net income is primarily the result of (i) a decrease in
gross sales from the Registrant's Alabama and Illinois plants, which the
Registrant closed during fiscal year 2002 because of reduced orders for those
plants from the Registrant's major customer, and (ii) a decrease in gross sales
at its facility in Lawrenceville, Virginia, because of poor economic conditions.
