Exco Technologies Limited today announced that it has been awarded Chrysler’s next generation V6 (Phoenix)engine program and a rear wheel drive transmission program. Exco has been working with stakeholders on the Phoenix project for over a year and will ship the prototype mould this month. Exco has also been awarded a transmission case tooling program by Ford and has secured its first transmission case tooling program for Honda on a sole source basis. Exco expects that, over the next five years, based on anticipated production volumes and anticipated releases and rebuild requirements these programs combined will generate approximately $75,000,000 in sales. While certain programs may impact the current fiscal year, most programs will begin to ship in fiscal 2008. The introduction of these programs reflects the desire by automakers to produce more fuel-efficient vehicles. Exco Technologies Limited is a supplier of innovative technologies servicing the die-cast, extrusion and automotive industries. Through 13 strategic locations, they employ 2,200 people.
