Trelleborg acquires remaining shares in Indian sealing operation 

Through its Trelleborg Sealing Solutions business area, Trelleborg has entered
into an agreement to acquire an outstanding privately owned minority share (20
percent) in Trelleborg Sealing Solutions India, thereby becoming sole owner of
the company. This acquisition is a part of Trelleborg's ongoing and future
investment in Asia, where India constitutes one of the key markets.

Trelleborg has held a majority share in the company since the acquisition of
Polymer Sealing Solutions in 2003. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions India is located
in Bangalore, has approximately 120 employees and sales of approximately SEK 80
million. The unit consists of a marketing company and a production unit that
manufactures seals for both the Indian, other Asian and the European markets.

“This is a natural and significant step in our continued growth in India. Being
the sole owner facilitates our continued transfer of business and technology to
this growing market,” says Claus Barsøe, Business Area President, Trelleborg
Sealing Solutions.

The acquisition has an insignificant impact on the Trelleborg Group's earnings
and financial position.
