Gentex Shipping Auto-Dimming Mirrors for Ford Fiesta in Europe

ZEELAND, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Nov 06, 2008 -- Gentex Corporation (NASDAQ: GNTX), the leading supplier of automatic-dimming rearview mirrors to the worldwide automotive industry, has announced that it is shipping auto-dimming interior rearview mirrors for the new generation Ford Fiesta in Europe, one of Europe's best-selling vehicles.

A Gentex interior auto-dimming mirror is standard on the Ghia and Titanium trim levels. Gentex mirrors darken automatically in response to the headlamp glare of rearward-approaching vehicles.

"Fiesta joins the European Ford Focus in offering auto-dimming interior mirrors," said Enoch Jen, Senior Vice President. "Fiesta and Focus account for the majority of Ford's European production, and we are very pleased that Ford recognizes the importance of the auto-dimming feature in the European market."

Founded in 1974, Gentex Corporation (NASDAQ: GNTX) is an international company that provides high-quality products to the worldwide automotive industry and North American fire protection market. Based in Zeeland, Michigan, the Company develops, manufactures and markets interior and exterior automatic-dimming automotive rearview mirrors that utilize proprietary electrochromic technology to dim in proportion to the amount of headlight glare from trailing vehicle headlamps. Many of the mirrors are sold with advanced electronic features, and more than 97 percent of the Company's revenues are derived from the sale of auto-dimming mirrors to nearly every major automaker in the world.
