In January 2004, the Company completed the acquisition of Prototech Laser Welding, Inc.

In January 2005, the Company completed the acquisition of the assets of Oxford Automotive Inc.’s steel processing facility in Silao, Mexico (“Mexico”) for approximately $5.7 million plus the assumption of approximately $1.3 million in certain operating liabilities.
