At the corporate headquarters in Racine, WI, President and Chief Executive Officer, Tom Burke, addressed the team during the ceremony.  He discussed the importance of the 100-year milestone and compared Modine's longevity to the average lifespan of a U.S. public company.  "We're 5 times the average, which says quite a bit," said Burke.

The flag displays Modine's 100th Anniversary graphic and new tagline.  After significant research, it was determined that "Always Innovating.  Always Improving." defines the culture of Modine and sets the stage for the next 100 years.  The graphic pays homage to Modine's history while focusing on the future with the forward looking tagline.  "We are celebrating our 100th year because we are always innovating and we will continue to ensure our future because we are always improving," Burke concluded.

Modine was incorporated in Racine, Wisconsin on June 23, 1916 by its founder, Arthur B. Modine, and will continue to celebrate its anniversary throughout the year.
