New Modine India Facility to Serve Growing Domestic Vehicle Production

The 80,000 square-foot state-of-the-art manufacturing site, located in the southeastern section of India, will provide Modine-developed thermal management solutions to that nation's domestic engine, commercial vehicle and off-highway markets as demand grows.

RACINE, Wis. — Modine Manufacturing Co. has opened new manufacturing operations in Chennai, India. The Chennai facility supports Modine’s global expansion objectives and will serve India’s rapidly growing engine, commercial vehicle and off-highway markets.

The 80,000 square-foot state-of-the-art manufacturing site, located in the southeastern section of India, will provide Modine-developed thermal management solutions to that nation’s domestic engine, commercial vehicle and off-highway markets as demand grows. With an initial 75 employees, Modine’s Chennai facility will serve as a base from which the company plans to expand its engine and powertrain cooling product lines to new markets. This supplements the 2007 opening of Modine’s India engineering and design center, which supports product development activities to meet increasing customer technology requirements. Modine announced its three-year, $14 million investment to build the greenfield Indian facility in December 2006 as part of its strategic plan to meet global product demand and increase its presence in the expanding Asian market.

As the fifth largest commercial vehicle market in the world with a five-year growth of 27 percent and 15 of the world’s major auto makers present, India represents a wealth of opportunities for Modine, said the company.
