CAMP HILL, PA (June 12, 2012) . . . Global industrial services and engineered products company Harsco Corporation (NYSE: HSC) announced today the planned retirement in early September of its Vice President of Investor Relations and Credit, Eugene M. Truett, following more than four decades in business and nearly 30 years of service in the investor relations (IR) profession.

Mr. Truett has led Harsco’s investor relations efforts since 1995, and since 2000 has earned six national recognitions for managing one of the country’s top IR programs in the industrial sector. In 2010, he was honored with selection to the annual All-America Executive Team in investor relations by Institutional Investor magazine.

The naming of Mr. Truett’s successor is expected to come later this summer following the Company’s review of qualified internal as well as external candidates. Additionally, Mr. Truett has indicated his plans to continue in an advisory capacity as necessary beyond September to ensure a full and complete transition.

“After 45 years in business and almost three decades in IR, my esteem has never been higher for the countless buy-side and sell-side professionals and close colleagues with whom I have worked on Harsco’s behalf,” Mr. Truett said. “I look forward to retirement knowing that transparency, credibility and accessibility will continue to be fundamental to ‘the Harsco way,’ just as it has been with me.”

Harsco Corporation is a diversified industrial company that is helping build the world by providing essential services and products to fundamental global industries, including steel and metals production, construction, railways and energy. Harsco’s common stock is a component of the S&P MidCap 400 Index and the Russell 1000 Index. Additional information can be found at
