                                                                    7 March 2005

              IMI plc appoints further new non-executive director

IMI plc, the major international engineering group, today announces the
appointment of Kevin Beeston as a non-executive director with effect from 8
March 2005. Kevin Beeston, 42, is Executive Chairman of Serco Group plc, a
position he has held since 2002.

Commenting on this appointment Jim Leng, Chairman of IMI, said 'The appointment
of Mr Beeston strengthens the independent non-executive presence on the Board of
IMI, where his extensive business experience will be of great value. He will be
joining the Audit, Nominations and Remuneration Committees (he will take the
chair of the latter from 4th April). As we announced in November 2004, I will
not be seeking re-election at the forthcoming annual general meeting. Work on
appointing my successor has advanced and we anticipate being able to make a
further announcement by the time of the annual general meeting in May.'
