Since our modest beginnings, Modine Manufacturing Company has maintained a tradition of leadership in heat-transfer technology.
Modine was founded in 1916 when Arthur B. Modine patented the Spirex radiator for tractors.
In keeping with A. B. Modine's spirit of technology and innovation, a world-class vehicular wind tunnel was built in Racine in 1941 and it's still in use today.
Modine Europe was established in 1990 and grew substantially in 1993 with the acquisition of Längerer & Reich, a German heat transfer company founded in 1913. This acquisition gave Modine over 150 combined years of thermal management and heat transfer experience. Today, more than 45% of our total revenues are generated outside of the U.S.
We are continuously moving forward with a vision of global heat transfer leadership. This can be seen in our $70 million commitment towards the construction of two new technical centers - one in Racine, the other in Bonlanden, Germany, home of our European Headquarters. Our recent acquisition in Asia gives us five wind tunnels worldwide on three continents.
Today, more than 88 years and 2,000 patents later, Modine Manufacturing Company continues to move in concert with changing times. We are an integral part of the world marketplace, bringing to it a history of manufacturing creativity and integrity.
With fiscal 2006 revenues from continuing operations of approximately $1.6 billion, Modine specializes in thermal management systems and components, bringing highly engineered heating and cooling technology and solutions to diversified global markets, including light, medium and heavy-duty vehicles, HVAC (heating, ventilating, air conditioning) equipment, industrial equipment, refrigeration systems, fuel cells, and electronics.
Solving thermal management and heat transfer problems has been our focus for almost 90 years. Our success in applying technology is most evident in the products, modules and systems we provide to our customers.
Over the years, our heat transfer solutions have set industry standards for efficiency, economy and durability. And with more than 2,000 patents, we remain the leading innovator in the field.
We have the following resources available to support your global heating or cooling needs:
- Three state-of-the-art technical centers outfitted with climatic vehicular wind tunnels: Asan City, South Korea; Bonlanden, Germany; and Racine, Wisconsin.
- Five total wind tunnels, including our original 1941 wind tunnel in Racine.
- More than 600 engineers and 35 Ph.D.'s ready to solve your heat transfer problems.
- Virtual engineering tools allow us to design, engineer and test new solutions without creating physical prototypes.
