Gentex Announces Shipments for New Honda Accord

Gentex Corporation, the leading supplier of automatic-dimming rearview mirrors, today announced that it has begun shipping auto-dimming mirrors for the new 2008 Honda Accord.

The mirrors darken automatically in response to the headlamp glare of rearward-approaching vehicles.

The Honda Accord, one of the largest global automotive vehicle platforms, will feature an interior auto-dimming mirror as optional equipment on certain trim levels for the Accord around the globe, including being standard in the EX V6 sedan package. The Accord platform will also offer as optional equipment exterior driver- and passenger-side auto-dimming mirrors for Accords sold in certain Asian markets.

 "This is a very significant new business win for Gentex," said Senior Vice President Enoch Jen. "Honda is ramping up its use of auto-dimming technology and Gentex is proud to be their partner in the promotion of this safety feature. We look forward to continuing our work with Honda."

Founded in 1974, Gentex Corporation 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 96 percent of the Company's revenues are derived from the sale of auto-dimming mirrors to nearly every major automaker in the world.
