Grammer AG Establishes New US Production Site

New U.S. headquarters in Lee County, Mississippi
Important milestone in Grammer's global growth strategy

Lee County, MI, USA / Amberg, Germany, January 30, 2014 - Grammer AG,
leading specialist in seating systems and components for car interiors is
establishing a new manufacturing facility in the U.S. state of Mississippi.
The new plant will also serve as Grammer's new headquarters in the United
States. Plant opening and start of production is scheduled for the end of
2014.

By establishing the new site, Grammer AG will further increase its local
presence in North America. With this new location Grammer can also optimize
its internal value chain in the NAFTA region and can guarantee its
customers a maximum of logistical flexibility. Together with its two large
manufacturing facilities in Mexico, the automotive sales and engineering
center in Troy, Michigan, the seating location in the north of the Unites
States, the new location in Mississippi will excellently position Grammer
in North America and support the company's successful growth strategy in
that market.

'The North American car and commercial vehicle markets are extremely
important factors in the Grammer Group's growth strategy. Already today we
are generating more than 15 percent of our global sales in the NAFTA region
and we are planning to double our sales volume over the next five years.
Therefore this new location is an important milestone in our global growth
strategy and will support to achieve our ambitious growth targets in North
America', said Hartmut Müller, CEO of Grammer AG
