Vacon Inc.
6425 W. Executive Drive
Mequon, WI, 53092

Press release date: November 16, 2012

Global AC drive manufacturer Vacon rang the NASDAQ Stock Market Opening Bell in New York on Thursday, 15 November 2012.

The visit to the NASDAQ Stock Market in New York and the Opening Bell Ceremony were part of Vacon's upcoming 20th anniversary in the global AC drives business in 2013. Representing Vacon in the Opening Bell ceremony were, among others, Vesa Laisi, Vacon's President and CEO, and Tom Doring, President, Vacon Inc., Vacon's subsidiary in the United States.

"Vacon has become a truly global company in 20 years. The company has sales offices in 27 countries and production units on three continents, for instance here in the United States. AC drives are one of the best products to improve energy efficiency in industry and in civil engineering. It had been estimated that with energy efficient electric motors which are equipped with AC drives approximately 10% of the world's energy consumption can be cut. I think that Vacon has excellent prerequisites to grow in the future, especially when competing or substitute technical solutions do not exist for AC drives and are not within sight," says Vesa Laisi, Vacon's President and CEO.

The opening and closing bells of the NASDAQ Stock Market in New York mark the beginning and end of the trading day. The ceremony featuring the bell ringer is broadcast live on international news channels, and the event can also be seen on the NASDAQ Tower screen in Times Square.
