Luxembourg, July 13, 2010 - SAF-HOLLAND S.A., a leading global manufacturer
and provider of premium systems and components for commercial vehicles
(trucks and trailers) has recorded increasing utilization of its production
capacities since the beginning of the year. As a result, the company has
taken on 83 new industrial employees for plants in Keilberg, Frauengrund
and Wörth am Main. 'We are receiving an increasing number of orders and
additional production shifts are needed. We are pleased to announce that we
have been able to re-hire some of the employees laid off in 2009,' said

upturn in the market. 'Looking ahead, an annual increase in transport
volume of 10% is generally expected in the industry over the next five
years,' said Chief Financial Officer, Wilfried Trepels.
