LISLE, Ill., Jan. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Navistar International Corporation (NYSE: NAV) will host an Analyst and Investor Day on February 1, at the company's new integrated product development center and headquarters in suburban Chicago.
"At our new facility, you'll see first-hand the thinking that goes into our products and the value of integrating not only our products, but our people," said A. J. Cederoth, Navistar Chief Financial Officer. "We will provide insights into our strategies – from further global growth to increased expansion into alternative fuels – along with providing specific guidance for 2012."
Numerous products on display will showcase how the company's strategy of utilizing one chassis, two bodies and three engine platforms to design integrated, best-in-class vehicles that meet the full-range of customer needs will result in reduced investment, cost efficiencies and continued margin expansion.
As previously announced, the company will soon be submitting a .2 NOx (g/hp-hr) engine for certification. During the event management will walk investors through the company's path to bringing to market this .2 engine, which combines all of the convenience of an in-cylinder emissions solution with market leading vehicle performance and fluid economy.
"Our EGR technology has proven itself in the marketplace and remains the best solution for our customers," said Jack Allen, president of Navistar's North American Truck Group. "We are the first and only OEM to offer this customer-centric solution."
The event will begin at 11 a.m. CST. Attendance in person is limited to analyst and institutional investors, who must preregister via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. A live audio webcast of the event will be available to the public at http://ir.navistar.com/events.cfm.
