One of CVG's mobile crane seats for XCMG. The supplier estimates that it will ultimately supply approximately 70% of XCMG's seating requirements.

Commercial Vehicle Group Inc. (CVG) has been selected by XCMG, a leading Chinese construction machinery manufacturer, as one of two key seat suppliers for the XCMG family of products. CVG will provide a range of construction seating products for multiple XCMG vehicle lines including mobile cranes, rollers, wheel loaders, excavators, graders, truck cranes, and concrete pumps. The company expects to begin production of seats designated for XCMG's crane products in the third quarter of 2010 at its facility in Shanghai, China, and intends to ramp up additional production across all other XCMG construction vehicle lines over the next 12 months. It also plans to establish a warehouse/distribution center near XCMG's base in Xuzhou, China, to support XCMG as well as other customers in China.
