April 14, 2011

Three of the production programs will provide Chinese vehicle manufacturers with accelerator pedal modules, and one will deliver transmission sensors to a North American automaker.


ELKHART, IN /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- CTS Corp. announced that CTS Automotive Products has been awarded three new production programs by Chinese vehicle manufacturers for its Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Accelerator Pedal Modules plus a new Transmission Sensor program for a North American platform. All four awards represent new business and will result in an increase in CTS' global market share.

The pedal modules for the Chinese vehicles will be manufactured in CTS' facility in Zhongshan, China. The transmission sensors will come out of CTS' facility in Matamoros, Mexico and will be used in a new luxury all-electric vehicle. This is CTS' second business award for transmission sensors.

Shipments have already begun for some of the programs. The remaining programs will launch over the next 18 months. Revenues from these four awards are expected to reach approximately $15 million over the anticipated five-year lives of the programs.
