Grand Rapids, MI (August 11, 2004) - Clarion Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: CLAR.OB) today announced financial results for the quarterly period ended June 26, 2004.
Clarion's 2004 sales for the second quarter were $28.1 million versus $25.5 million in the second quarter of 2003. Sales for the first six months of 2004 were $57.7 million versus $47.7 million for the same period of 2003. The 22% increase in revenue was driven primarily by sales of new products with existing customers.

Net loss attributable to the common shareholder for the first six months of 2004 was ($3.20) million versus ($2.63) million for the same period of 2003. The increase in net loss attributable to common shareholder was primarily driven by the increase in accrued dividends.
