MSX International Increases Investment in CADFORM Engineering in Germany

MSX International Inc. has increased its investment in its Germany-based engineering service partnership with CADFORM Engineering GmbH. The new investment has been accomplished through an internal restructuring of CADFORM and MSX International resources in Russelsheim and Sindelfingen. MSX International acquired its initial equity interest in CADFORM in January 1999. This most recent step reflects MSX International's continuing commitment to provide a comprehensive range of engineering services to global automotive customers. Under the terms of the new investment, MSX International has become the largest single shareholder in the company. MSX International's offices in Russelsheim and Sindelfingen are being integrated with CADFORM resources under the leadership of the two managing directors of CADFORM, Volker Wagner and Ludwig Leissing. "We are pleased to provide the global reach and resources of MSX International in support of our customers," said Ludwig Leissing, one of CADFORM's two managing directors. "Based on this strengthened relationship with MSX International, we expect to expand our range of products and service areas in Germany. One of our first actions will be to develop our new identity as Cadform/MSX Engineering GmbH." "The engineering capabilities of CADFORM's people are well- respected in the German automotive industry," added John Risk, President of the Engineering Services Division of MSX International. "We view this action as a demonstration of our resolve to provide superior support and service to our automotive customers on a worldwide basis." CADFORM Engineering, headquartered in Homberg/Ohm, generates 85% of its sales revenue in the automotive industry, mainly in the sectors of product development and mold construction. The complete development potential ranges from full interiors to complex aluminum die-cast parts.
