Gentex Supplying Auto-Dimming Mirrors For Several SEAT Vehicles
Zeeland, Michigan (ots/PRNewswire) - Gentex Corporation, the leading supplier of automatic-dimming mirrors to the worldwide automotive industry, has begun shipping interior automatic-dimming mirrors for several of SEAT's (Sociedad Espanola de Automoviles de Turismo) 2005 models. SEAT, a member of Volkswagen Group's Sport Division, produces vehicles in Spain.
Gentex auto-dimming mirrors automatically darken to reduce glare from the headlamps of vehicles approaching from the rear. The brighter the glare, the darker the mirrors become, making nighttime driving safer.
An interior automatic-dimming mirror is an optional feature on SEAT's 2005 Ibiza, Leon, Cordoba and Toledo vehicles, as well as the Altea MPV, SEAT's new entry into the minivan segment. The vehicles are sold throughout Central and Western Europe.
"Gentex products have been featured on SEAT vehicles in the past, but now we're the primary auto-dimming mirror supplier for all SEAT platforms," stated Garth Deur, Gentex executive vice president. "We look forward to our expanded relationship with SEAT and its parent company, Volkswagen."
Founded in 1974, Gentex Corporation (Nasdaq: GNTX) is an international company that provides high-quality products to the worldwide automotive industry and North American fire protection market. Based in Zeeland, Michigan, the Company develops, manufactures and markets interior and exterior automatic-dimming automotive rearview mirrors that utilize proprietary electrochromic technology to dim in proportion to the amount of headlight glare from trailing vehicle headlamps. Many of the mirrors are sold with advanced electronic features, and more than 95 percent of the Company's revenues are derived from the sales of auto-dimming mirrors to nearly every major automaker in the world.
