  Broadwind Energy Welcomes the Final ITC Determinations

Business Wire

CICERO, Ill. -- January 18, 2013

Broadwind Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: BWEN) made the following statement with
respect to the U.S. International Trade Commission’s (ITC) determinations
regarding its final phase anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations
concerning utility scale wind towers from China and Vietnam.

Peter C. Duprey, president and CEO of Broadwind Energy, Inc., stated, “As one
of the largest U.S. suppliers of wind towers, Broadwind is pleased with the
ITC’s finding that the U.S. wind industry has been materially impacted by
Chinese and Vietnamese imports sold at less than fair value. With supply and
demand for wind towers in the U.S. coming into better balance, the imposition
of final anti-dumping and/or countervailing duty orders on these products will
support fair competition and further development in wind, and the retention of
jobs in the sector. Broadwind continues to be committed to the wind industry
and to serving our customers’ tower needs.”
