Technologies Simrit(Freudenberg-NOK) further expanded its distribution
program today at its inaugural Aerospace Preferred Distributor Conference held
in Irvine, Calif. Building on the success of its global distributor program,
the company is focusing on the aerospace distribution market by identifying
six companies as Preferred Distributors at an awards ceremony this evening.

The goal of the aerospace-focused distributor initiative is to promote
cooperation and communication between Freudenberg-NOK and its key distributors
so they can better serve customers in the aerospace industry – an industry
regulated by stringent global quality and safety product standards.
Distributors benefit from Freudenberg-NOK's commitment of resources, which
were discussed during the two-day conference held at the company's AS9100 and
NADCAP-approved Santa Ana facility and an offsite location.

"We understand the distinct demands that aerospace distributors face in the
global marketplace and we've seen the success that our industrial distributors
have had with the Preferred Distributor program," said Vinay Nilkanth, vice
president global sales, aerospace, Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies
Simrit. "With our industry knowledge and global footprint, we remain committed
to providing our Preferred Distributors with expanded support and resources
through this program."

Freudenberg-NOK's 2013 Aerospace Preferred Distributors include:

  oBuckeye Rubber & Packing Co., Cleveland;

  oKAPCO, Brea, Calif.;
  oPattonair, Derby, UK and Fort Worth, Texas;

  oValley Seal Co., Woodland Hills, Calif.

Freudenberg-NOK's technically advanced product portfolio offers high-quality
sealing solutions that meet demanding industry standards and can be adapted to
meet specific aerospace customer requirements. The extensive offering requires
the company's distributors to have the working knowledge of the products to
most accurately recommend customer solutions. To foster this knowledge, the
aerospace program was created to provide Preferred Distributors a variety of
educational resources, global support and services.

Freudenberg-NOK's aerospace distributors join a global network of more than 60
Preferred Distributors. For additional information about the program and
