STOUGHTON, Wis., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Nelson Global Products, a
manufacturer of fabricated high-performance vehicle exhaust and emissions
equipment and systems, has entered a new phase of its rich history with the
ribbon-cutting of a new headquarters campus including an extensive engineering
and design center.


Nelson has established Stoughton its home base since its founding in 1939.

The ceremony -- attended by Stoughton Mayor Donna Olson, Stoughton Chamber of
Commerce and city development officials, and other members of Nelson's
executive management team – was hosted by Tom Gosnell, president and CEO of

In operation since early this year, the new $3.75 million headquarters
consists of a 25,000-sq. ft. office building which encompasses the 100
employees and key departments including product design and engineering,
marketing, sales, accounting and administrative support staffs. In another
area of Stoughton, the company also opened an extensive testing facility for
product development and performance validation.

"While Nelson is and will be an international company, Stoughton with its rich
family-based community will always be our home and at the core of our business
values. All of us -- especially the 100 persons in this complex -- place high
value and appreciation on the efforts of the city to help our company and our
employees stay here," said Gosnell.

"We at Wind Point Partners are proud of the progress the team at Nelson has
made to grow our customer base, improve our manufacturing efficiency and
enhance our standing in the community," said David Stott, director at Wind
Point Partners. Nelson is a portfolio company of Wind Point Partners, a
private equity firm in Chicago.

"Lead by our teams of people, our new headquarters has the same opportunity to
impress all our visitors, much like our sales force presents to customers...a
positive and friendly experience prefaced by learning more about our deep
capabilities of serving customers," Gosnell added.

Nelson's vice president of Business Integration, Sue Vanderbilt, said. "We've
made so much forward progress in improving our products' and services' quality
and effectiveness to our growing customer base. It's a proud moment for all
our futures."

Vanderbilt and Todd Kane, director of facilities, were responsible for the
daily management and liaison of the headquarters project.

The building's themed lobby distinctly features distinct experiential items:

1. Who We Are - complete with mission and vision as well as the company's rich
history and legacy;

2. What We Do - detailing the different exhaust-tubing products engineered and
manufactured; and

3. Who We Work For - listing the key global customers of commercial vehicles
in the market segments served: On-Highway Trucks, Off-Highway Vehicles,
Outdoor power vehicles and specialty vehicles, and the related Aftermarkets.

  oAnother unique feature is a reception desk made of stainless steel tubes
    and perforated sheet metal panels, and an employee-made, highly-polished
    conference table made from native Wisconsin woods -- both demonstrating
    the employees' hearts and minds are always on the quality products.

Ground was broken for the campus in June 2012. Nelson partnered with Vogel
Bros. Building Co. as its design/builder and Potter Lawson, Inc. for the
facility design.
