Visteon Vice President to Discuss Materials Management Opportunities and Challenges in the Mexican Automotive Market

Paul Radkoski, vice president of North American Materials Management for Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC), will speak on July 14, 2004, at the International Congress of the Automotive Industry in Mexico 2004 Conference in Mexico City, Mexico.

Radkoski will share his thoughts on opportunities and challenges suppliers face in managing supply chain and logistics in the country, as well as on sourcing in China and other low cost areas.

Radkoski is responsible for leading Visteon's supply efforts for North America, including purchasing, material planning and logistics, supplier quality, and aftermarket materials management. In addition, he is in charge of coordinating the development of the company's global commodity purchasing strategies.

"We are striving to be both the supplier and the customer of choice," said Radkoski. "Our competitiveness will always be enhanced by a strong supply base that truly focuses on long-term relationships. Some of the keys to fostering strong relationships are early involvement in future programs, design to target for new products, joint collaboration on cost savings and waste reduction initiatives, and continuous refinement of our global commodity strategies, in which Mexico can play a part."
