MWW Automotive Begins Production of Key Mazda MX-5 Aero Components
HOWELL, Mich., May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MWW Automotive Group (OTCQB: MWWC), a global design, engineering, and manufacturing firm serving some of the world's leading automotive and industrial manufacturers, announced today that it has begun production of three key Mazda MX-5 Aero components for Mazda North America.
MWW will produce a front air dam kit, side sill kit and rear spoiler kit for the new Mazda MX-5 in its ISO and Mazda certified Class A manufacturing facility in Baroda, MI, for delivery to Mazda's North American, European and Asian Markets. First product shipments are expected during the week of June 11, 2012.
This is the first OE contract with Mazda for MWW, after its production facility has been certified by Mazda's engineering and management teams. MWW Automotive has been selected as a key supplier for this program, because it provides a service strategy with cost competitive pricing and on-time service part delivery, both during current and post-production periods, as required by Mazda's General Supplier Guide Lines. Over the last year MWW has expanded and customized its production lines according to the specific production requirements for these high quality OE direct programs. As a consequence the production of these special parts for Mazda falls squarely into MWW's core competency.
This is the second production start for a major manufacturer's program for the Company after the launch of the Ford Mustang program. MWW management believes that the second half of 2012 will begin to demonstrate the impact of the restructuring efforts of MWW's dedicated management team during 2011 and 2012 and will be reflected in improving financial performance with increasing revenues and net results expected during the second half of 2012 and all of 2013.
"While our Q2 financial results were disappointing to all of us, caused by additional and unexpected delays not only in our industrial, but also in some of our already awarded automotive programs, we have now finally begun production with several new projects and expect to improve our performance during the next two quarters and all of 2013. Based on our recent experience, we will inform about new projects at the time we are commencing with production. We will consider giving further guidance for future expectations, once we feel confident about the date lines for new projects already awarded and/or currently in development," states Chuck Pinkerton, CEO of MWW Automotive.
