Navistar Recognizes Corning as a Diamond Supplier

Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) was named a 2008 Diamond Supplier for the second consecutive year by Navistar Inc. This award recognizes Navistar’s suppliers for meeting or exceeding Navistar's performance expectations for quality, delivery, and cost.

Navistar’s Diamond Supplier award is given to suppliers who strategically align with the company's business goals, while also demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement. Diamond Suppliers collaborate technically and commercially with Navistar and play an integral role in growing Navistar's business. In addition, Diamond Suppliers deliver products of distinction to mutual end customers.

"We are proud that our quality controls, manufacturing expertise, and collaborative efforts have earned us the privilege of the Navistar Diamond Supplier award for the second consecutive year,” said Curt Weinstein, vice president and general manager, Corning Heavy-Duty Diesel Technologies. "We continue to work very closely with Navistar to integrate our innovative products into emissions-control systems that enable them to meet the world's most stringent emissions regulations, while achieving optimal engine power and fuel efficiency.”

In March, Corning and Navistar announced that Corning will provide Navistar with advanced, diesel emissions-control products which will enable Navistar to meet the strict Environmental Protection Agency regulations (EPA 2010) that go into effect Jan. 1, 2010. This multi-year agreement is for the supply of Corning emissions-control products for medium- and heavy-duty Navistar MaxxForce® brand diesel engines, used in Navistar’s International® brand trucks for North America.

Corning is a leading supplier of advanced cellular ceramic substrates and diesel particulate filters for all of the world's major manufacturers of gasoline and diesel engines and vehicles. The company invented an economical, high-performance, cellular ceramic substrate in the early 1970s that is now the standard for catalytic converters worldwide. In 1978, Corning developed the cellular ceramic particulate filter to remove soot from diesel emissions. Corning continues to leverage its expertise in materials, processes, and manufacturing to develop advanced ceramic substrates and diesel particulate filters that help meet demanding mobile-emissions requirements.
