        WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- ITT Industries
    (NYSE: IIN), a global diversified manufacturing company, announced today
    the launch of http://www.ittind.com, its new home on the World Wide Web.
    Ittind.com will provide information about the company to an estimated
    worldwide on-line population of 37 million people.
        "We developed ittind.com as part of our strategy to effectively
    communicate to our customers, investors, employees and other key
    audiences around the world," said Travis Engen, chairman, president and
    chief executive of ITT Industries.  "People can now discover our
    innovative products, globally balanced businesses and financial
    performance by simply clicking to our web site."
        "As an analyst who follows ITT Industries closely, I think the
    company's web site offers individual investors a reliable and convenient
    source of information about the company, its markets and its
    businesses," said Jack Kelly, a well-known investment analyst from
    Goldman Sachs.
        The site features advanced graphical design and the latest Web
    technologies, including Netscape 3.0, Sun Microsystems' Java, and
    Macromedia's "Shockwave" application.  Highlights of the site include
    free quotes of the company's stock price (NYSE: IIN), a news ticker
    offering the latest public information about ITT Industries, an animated
    display of an ITT Automotive Anti-Lock Braking System in action, ITT
    Fluid Technology's registration area for future product mailings, and an
    on-line catalog of  ITT Defense & Electronics' Night Vision products.
        Among other features offered at ittind.com:
        -- A Financial Data section devoted specifically to investors, which
           includes an on-line version of ITT Industries' 1995 annual
           report, quarterly results announcements, shareholder information,
           operating results by division, and details of ITT Industries'
           dividend re-investment program.
        -- Separate sections for each of ITT Industries' business segments,
           including detailed information on products, and links to other
           ITT Industries sites, such as ITT Cannon in Santa Ana,
           California, ITT Night Vision in Roanoke, Virginia, and ITT Flygt
           in Stockholm, Sweden.
        -- A News Room, containing a company fact sheet, recent press
           releases and past news affecting the company.  The News Room is
           designed for easy access and navigation by the media.
    
        Ittind.com is enhanced for Netscape 2.5 or higher, allowing users to
    rapidly find and retrieve information about the company's financial
    performance, products, and services in an entertaining, graphically
    innovative format.  Navigation through this information-rich site is
    simplified by a frame-based architecture that guides the user,
    eliminating the common Web hazard of becoming "lost" in a mess of linked
    pages.
        ITT Industries also will continue to develop and update the site to
    keep it informative, timely and innovative.  For example, stories on
    various industry topics will be posted to the site to provide insight
    and analysis.
