Company Information/Large scale orders


Oberkirch (euro adhoc) - August 2, 2011 - After having booked new orders worth
more than EUR 150 million in the first half of 2011, which were distributed
among all product areas, and involve the participation of all company sites,
orders worth a further approximately EUR 50 million were acquired in the month
of July alone.

In this context, the main focus is a major order for around EUR 30 million for
components for electrical motors. All of these new orders, which will go into
series production from 2013, make a significant contribution to the further
growth of PWO's sites in North America, China and also in Europe. 

We are also working intensively on solutions for components for alternative
drive concepts, as well as for batteries in electrical vehicles.
