Additional work is coming for the Trenton plant of Modine Manufacturing.
A news report from the company says Modine has been selected by another Wisconsin-based business, Oshkosh Defense LLC, to produce cooling modules for Oshkosh’s Joint Light Tactical Vehicle contract on behalf of the U-S Army and the Marine Corps.
The production contract calls for Oshkosh to deliver nearly 17 thousand vehicles, as well as kits and services, over an eight year period. The first vehicles are to be delivered this October. Modine’s cooling module features the latest high performance heat exchanger technology with a focus on light-weight component designs which are described as critical in meeting stringent U-S military maximum weight requirements.
Four different Modine plants in North America are working together to produce the cooling modules. Final assembly takes place at the Modine plant in Trenton.
Modine’s Executive Vice President and CEO is quoted as stating collaboration among multiple Modine groups to deliver these cooling components to Oshkosh Defense showcases Modine’s engineering and manufacturing capabilities. He noted Modine’s powertrain cooling global engineering teams work with customers in meeting the demands of increasingly stringent government regulations and packaging. Solutions are developed, he said, to increase fuel economy, lower emissions, and improve durability and reliability of current and future powertrain components.
