Modine Wins Programs to Supply Approximately $125 Million Per Year in EPA 2010 and Tier 4 Engine Cooling Solutions Over Five Years

RACINE, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Modine Manufacturing Company (NYSE:MOD), a diversified leader in thermal management technology and solutions, announced that, to date, it has been awarded a series of programs to supply exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) cooling solutions to meet U.S. EPA 2010 on-highway vehicle and Tier 4 off-highway equipment emissions standards. The new programs, which consist of medium and heavy-duty engine applications for a variety of customers, total approximately $125 million in annualized revenues. Production is expected to begin in Modines Joplin, Missouri, manufacturing facility in mid-calendar 2009 and extend through 2015.

Commenting on the new business, David B. Rayburn, Modine President and Chief Executive Officer, said, We are especially pleased with the markets acceptance of our latest EGR technology. These recently awarded programs reflect a high quality of business, consistent with our growth targets for the overall company and our efforts to turn around the performance of our Original Equipment – North America business segment.

The success of our new EGR technology is based on our continuing ability to help our customers meet their challenging engine applications, while at the same time reaching the more stringent environmental standards that help keep air cleaner for all of us, said James R. Rulseh, Modine Regional Vice President Americas. These wins are based on our field-proven, third generation, high efficiency EGR technology which is not only applicable to meet the coming U.S. EPA emissions standards, but also will help our global customers meet Euro-5 and Euro-6 standards in Europe and Euro-4 standards in Asia.

EGR coolers are used on diesel engines to cool and re-circulate a percentage of the exhaust gas in order to promote more effective combustion and reduce the formation of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulates.

Modines latest EGR solution builds on our years of experience in providing highly efficient, highly durable technology with performance density and world class fouling (soot) resistance, said Scott D. Wollenberg, Managing Director Global Engine Products. We are pleased that a growing number of customers have recognized Modines technology as their solution of choice to meet increasingly demanding environmental regulations and their own exacting standards for high efficiency, durability and performance.

A majority of the new programs represents incremental business that supports Modines goal of generating 4 to 6 percent annual organic revenue growth. The Joplin facility, where the EGR coolers will be produced, is registered to ISO-TS Quality Standards, which are recognized international standards for quality systems. The plant also is registered to ISO 14001 Environmental Standards, which are the internationally recognized standards for environmental management systems.
