Woodward Achieves Natural Gas Engine Control Systems Milestone 
FORT COLLINS, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 --  Woodward, Inc.
(NASDAQ: WWD) announced today the shipment of its 100,000th OH
natural gas engine control system. The Woodward system reduces fuel
costs and exhaust emissions in the growing area of industrial engines
fueled by CNG (compressed natural gas) or LNG (liquefied natural gas)
in heavy-duty transport applications. 
"Our technology helps enhance the global quality of life by
delivering solutions that support the use of clean, natural gas
engines," said Chad Preiss, President, Engine Systems. "We thank our
Woodward members and partners who helped us reach this significant
milestone."  
Woodward, building on two decades of market success and technology
development, is the market leader in OH natural gas engine control
systems. These systems are used by over twelve gas engine original
equipment manufacturers in eight countries, including China, Korea,
and the United States.  
Sales of Woodward's portfolio of natural gas engine control systems
have increased substantially in recent years as natural gas has
become a more desirable fuel source. Air pollution concerns and the
increasing supply of low-cost natural gas are driving strong demand
for our proven systems technologies.
