Waterloo, ON - November 6, 2002: MKS Inc. (MKS) (TSE:MKX), a leading provider of tools to automate, secure, manage and control the software development process today announced that H.E.B. Grocery Company L.P., one of the largest independently owned food retailers in the nation, has chosen MKS Source Integrity® Enterprise Edition and MKS Integrity Manager™ for its cross-platform software configuration management (SCM) and process and workflow management needs.

Founded in Kerrville, Texas in 1905, H-E-B employs 50,000 employees and operates 295 stores throughout Texas, Louisiana, and internationally in Mexico. H-E-B made a corporate decision to more fully utilize third-party application packages, and to do so they knew they needed a SCM tool that provided rich integration into third-party software tools used by its software development teams to better leverage these prior investments.

H-E-B was using a SCM tool on its mainframe system and realized the need for a different solution for its UNIX/NT systems. After an exhaustive study, which included industry analyst recommendations of available SCM tools, H-E-B selected the MKS Integrity Solution and performed a pilot to confirm its decision that MKS was the best vendor for the company's enterprise SCM needs.

MKS Source Integrity Enterprise Edition and MKS Integrity Manager are currently being deployed to 200 developers of H-E-B's application and systems software in its San Antonio, Texas headquarters and Mexico, with the possible use for hardware configuration management in the future.

"It became clear to us that the MKS SCM solution offered H-E-B the most flexibility, scalability, and cross-platform support of any SCM solution on the marketplace," says Gavin Nichols, Director of Information Solutions, H.E.B. Grocery Company L.P. "MKS also provided us with process expertise illustrating how MKS Integrity Manager can work with our existing schedules and streamline our development processes over time for additional productivity payback."
