Grand Rapids, MI (April 30, 2004) Clarion Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: CLAR.OB) today announced financial results for the quarterly period ended March 27, 2004.
Clarions 2004 sales for the first quarter were $29.6 million versus $22.2 million in the first quarter of 2003. The 33% increase in revenue was driven primarily by an increase in sales through new business opportunities.

Clarions net income from continuing operations for 2004 was $0.81 million versus $0.60 million (which includes $0.21 million of restructuring and impairment credits) in 2003.
Clarion Technologies President, Bill Beckman, commented, We are pleased with our first quarter results and expect similar growth and results for the remainder of 2004.
