ArvinMeritor Awarded Hyundai Body Systems Business

TROY, Mich., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ArvinMeritor (NYSE: ARM) announced today that its Body Systems business unit within the Light Vehicle Systems (LVS) business group has been awarded new business to supply over four million window regulator motors annually to Hyundai Motor Company worldwide. The agreement will supply Hyundai's future models with ArvinMeritor's New Generation Motor II from January 2010 through January 2017.

"This new business award is indicative of Hyundai's confidence in ArvinMeritor's body systems technology. Our competitive advantage is rooted in our global footprint that enables us to produce high-quality products in locations that are convenient to our customers all over the world," said Aziz Aghili, vice president and general manager of Body Systems for LVS, ArvinMeritor.

The New Generation Motor II offers several benefits, including an improved electromagnetic compliance design, a more robust brush card, and minimization of lower body vibration due to the improved rigidity of the gear housing - all at a reduced cost.
