International. Modine Manufacturing Company recently completed the construction of a new production facility of 92,000 square feet, located in Mezökövesd, Hungary.

"Mezőkövesd offers an ideal location to meet current demands and expand as needed," said Thomas Marry, executive vice president and chief operating officer. "With the recent victories in our Powetrain Coolling and Engine business, it was the right time to invest in our global manufacturing capabilities."

Located on an 1,000,000 square foot lot adjacent to an existing Modine location, the state-of-the-art building adds capacity to build aluminum engines and powertrain cooling products for the automotive, commercial vehicle and off-highway markets. Modine will manufacture liquid-cooled cargo air coolers (LCAC), oil coolers with liquid-to-liquid (LCOC) core cores and Origami condensers, as well as other key aluminum products.

The company will continue to make incremental investments in people and equipment so that the new facility will operate at peak performance. In total, 340 employees will perform a three-shift operation. The installation of a CAB furnace and an Origami Condenser line, which includes a tube mill, is complete, with presses, assembly stations, VAC furnaces and leak testers to follow in 2018.
