ArvinMeritor Announces Regional Technical Support Structure for Chassis Systems

Company's Light Vehicle Customers to Benefit from Regional Chassis Technical Centers

STUTTGART, Germany, May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ArvinMeritor, Inc. (NYSE: ARM) today unveiled the company's regional technical support structure for its light vehicle chassis systems customers located in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific. Today's announcement was made from the company's exhibit booth at the 2007 Vehicle Dynamics Expo in Stuttgart.

"ArvinMeritor's ability to serve chassis system customers at the local level is critical in the vehicle design and program management process," said Tom Watson, vice president of Light Vehicle Systems (LVS) Engineering and Technical Planning for ArvinMeritor. "Our technical footprint must mirror the customer to ensure discipline and collaboration throughout the product development process. Our customers need to know we're available and closely integrated into their programs."

Today the company's center of technical competence for light vehicle chassis systems is located in Troy, Mich., U.S.A. From the 35,000-sq. ft. facility, chassis engineers and technicians convert customer needs into design and performance requirements that drive system functionality. Utilizing the latest virtual simulation tools, including several proprietary design models, and state-of-the-art development and test equipment, ArvinMeritor's technical support teams are developing the most cost-effective, efficient and scalable solutions.

"The same capabilities and level of support are needed in Europe and Asia Pacific to meet the increasing customer demand for our suspension modules and advanced chassis solutions," added Watson. "We plan to utilize the current Bonneval, France ride control facility in Europe and our recently-announced technical center in Shanghai, China for Asia Pacific."

The European and Asian technical facilities will be involved in several customer programs beginning in 2008.
