CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NN, Inc. (NASDAQ: NNBR), a global diversified industrial company that engineers and manufactures high-precision components and assemblies, today announced another strong quarter of new business wins, with $17.2 million in new business awards in the first quarter of 2024. NN continued its momentum from the second half of 2023, consistent with the company’s 2024 target of $55-$70 million of new business awards. Additionally, over 70% of the Q1 2024 awards have an immediate startup in 2024.

“We are becoming a force to be reckoned with in our targeted market and product segments. We are very focused and have a progressive plan to learn fast and react fast to great opportunities that fit our strengths,” said Verlin Bush, Chief Commercial Officer of NN, Inc. “We have deep technical expertise in precision metal solutions, open capacity for many products and are moving quickly on new capabilities that fit our future direction. We intend to lead in our product categories and add additional avenues for growth. It’s an extremely exciting time to be in our industries as a value-added partner. This strong performance requires multi-functional teamwork amongst sales, engineering, operations and procurement. We are making it happen.”

NN secured 23 new business wins in the first quarter, averaging $700,000 each across its strategic regions in North America, South America, Europe and China. NN has formulated stronger programs in certain regions and is improving its sales mix by creating options for swap-outs and trade ups at certain plants. 72% of the awards startup in 2024; 3% in 2025 and 25% in 2026.

“Securing above-market profitable sales growth is a key pillar of our multi-year transformation plan. Our end markets are healthy with plenty of opportunities to participate at a higher rate,” said Harold Bevis, President and CEO of NN, Inc. “We are still optimizing some dilutive business at certain plants with certain customers, while at the same time adding new accretive business, and have been successful over the last three quarters. Already we are launching many new programs in parallel, while at the same time, rationalizing business at certain plants. Our operational performance is improving and giving us additional growth opportunities at certain plants where new business development had been constrained. We have a focused plan that is on track.”

NN’s notable wins were secured in target areas, including vehicle electrification and charging systems, fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction solutions, electrical grid expansion and control, and orthopedic medical products.
