INGRAM MICRO TO EXPAND ITS BUFFALO OPERATIONS CENTER
The Company will Double the Size of its Existing Operations Center and Employee Base

BUFFALO, New York, Aug. 27, 1996
Ingram Micro Inc. announced today it has received final board approval for the expansion of its East coast operations center in Amherst, New York. The expansion will increase the size of Ingram Micro's operations center by 150,000 square feet to a total of 320,000 square feet. In addition, the company may add up to 1,200 employees to its current workforce of 1,200.

"We are very pleased that we can now move ahead with our expansion plans in Amherst," said Jeff Rodek, Ingram Micro's president and chief operating officer. "The western New York area has been a strategic location for us for many years, and we are committed to this region, its excellent work force and the community."

Commenting on the unrelenting support Ingram Micro has received from a number of key executives in the state of New York, David R. Dukes, co-chairman of Ingram Micro said, "We are very appreciative to the federal, state, county and town officials who've been such strong and open supporters on behalf of Ingram Micro and our expansion plans in the Buffalo region. Particularly, I would like to thank: New York State Governor, George E. Pataki; Dennis Gorski, Erie County Executive; James J. Allen, executive director of the Amherst Industrial Development Agency; Charles A. Gargano, chairman of the Empire State Development Corp.; and the Amherst Townboard, especially Jane S. Woodward, Amherst Councilwoman, who has supported us from the beginning."

Governor Pataki said, "Ingram Micro's expansion in Buffalo, creating up to 1,200 good paying jobs, is another signal that New York's economic renewal is underway. The company's decision to make a major investment in New York State proves that we can create good jobs and real opportunity with our policies of lower taxes and less regulations."

Ingram Micro has selected Zaepfel Development Company of Amherst to construct the new office complex. Design and construction work will begin immediately, with completion scheduled for late 1997. Ingram Micro's Amherst operations center provides vendor and reseller partners with unsurpassed support services, in the areas of telesales, credit, customer service, management information systems and technical support.

This new facility marks Ingram Micro's third expansion in Buffalo since 1992. Just last year, Ingram Micro completed the addition of 90,000 square-feet of office space in Amherst.
